Human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 Tax-deregulated autophagy pathway and c-FLIP expression contribute to resistance against death receptor-mediated apoptosis.
 

Author(s): Weimin Wang, Jiansuo Zhou, Juan Shi, Yaxi Zhang, Shilian Liu, Yanxin Liu, Dexian Zheng

Journal: J. Virol.. 2014 Mar;88(5):2786-98.

 

The human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1) Tax protein is considered to play a central role in the process that leads to adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL) and HTLV-1-associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP). HTLV-1 Tax-expressing cells show resistance to ...

Palmitoylation and p8-mediated human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 transmission.
 

Author(s): Dustin Edwards, Risaku Fukumoto, Maria Fernanda de Castro-Amarante, Luiz Carlos Junior Alcantara, Bernardo Galvão-Castro, Robyn Washington Parks, Cynthia Pise-Masison, Genoveffa Franchini

Journal: J. Virol.. 2014 Feb;88(4):2319-22.

 

The orf-I gene of human T-cell leukemia type 1 (HTLV-1) encodes p8 and p12 and has a conserved cysteine at position 39. p8 and p12 form disulfide-linked dimers, and only the monomeric forms of p8 and p12 are palmitoylated. Mutation of cysteine 39 to alanine (C39A) abrogated dimerization ...

Human T-cell leukemia/lymphoma virus type 1 p30, but not p12/p8, counteracts toll-like receptor 3 (TLR3) and TLR4 signaling in human monocytes and dendritic cells.
 

Author(s): Claudio Fenizia, Martina Fiocchi, Kathryn Jones, Robyn Washington Parks, Michele Ceribelli, Sebastien A Chevalier, Dustin Edwards, Francis Ruscetti, Cynthia A Pise-Masison, Genoveffa Franchini

Journal: J. Virol.. 2014 Jan;88(1):393-402.

 

The human T-cell leukemia/lymphoma virus type 1 (HTLV-1) p30 protein, essential for virus infectivity in vivo, is required for efficient infection of human dendritic cells (DCs) but not B and T cells in vitro. We used a human monocytic cell line, THP-1, and dendritic cells to study ...

Human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1) and leukemic transformation: viral infectivity, Tax, HBZ and therapy.
 

Author(s): M Matsuoka, K-T Jeang

Journal: Oncogene. 2011 Mar;30(12):1379-89.

 

The human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1) was the first retrovirus discovered to be causative of a human cancer, adult T-cell leukemia. The transforming entity of HTLV-1 has been attributed to the virally-encoded oncoprotein, Tax. Unlike the v-onc proteins encoded by other oncogenic ...
