molecular analysis of different allelic variants of wild-type human p53.the p53 tumour suppressor gene is intensively studied because mutations in this gene are the most common genetic alteration so far identified in human cancer. considerable emphasis has thus been placed on characterizing the biological differences between mutant and wild-type p53 protein. this has led to the realization that in cultured cells, mutant p53 behaves like an oncogene, whereas wild-type p53 is a tumor suppressor gene. the p53 protein is also a target for the tumour virus oncogene produ ...19921297328
human papillomavirus dna in tissues and ocular surface swabs of patients with conjunctival epithelial neoplasia.dna from human papillomavirus (hpv) type 16 has been recently identified in conjunctival epithelial dysplasia and carcinoma. in other body sites, hpv 16 is thought to play a role in the development of dysplastic lesions. to further explore the relationship between hpv and conjunctival neoplasia, we examined paraffin-embedded tissue samples from 42 biopsies or excisions from 38 patients whose lesions ranged from mild dysplasia to infiltrating squamous carcinoma of the conjunctiva. we also examine ...19921309728
human papillomavirus type 16 e5 gene stimulates the transforming activity of the epidermal growth factor receptor.we have until recently made several unsuccessful attempts to assign any activity to the human papillomavirus type 16 (hpv-16) e5 gene product. however, studies with the bovine papilloma virus 1 (bpv-1) e5 protein indicated an interaction with the epidermal growth factor receptor (egfr). in light of the overall similarity between the hpv and bpv e5 proteins we attempted to determine whether the hpv-16 e5 gene had any common activity. in cells expressing high levels of egfr plus hpv-16 e5 we found ...19921311063
during negative regulation of the human papillomavirus-16 e6 promoter, the viral e2 protein can displace sp1 from a proximal promoter element.the principal early promoter of human papillomaviruses (hpvs), designated p97 in the case of hpv-16, contains four characteristically aligned cis-responsive elements, namely one binding site for sp1, two for the viral e2 proteins, and the tata box. the sp1 binding site is needed to mediate activation of p97 by the remote epithelial-specific enhancer, and the two e2 binding sites contribute to a negative feedback-loop of viral gene expression. the sp1 consensus motif and the tata-box distal e2 bi ...19921311070
specific n-methylations of hpv-16 e7 peptides alter binding to the retinoblastoma suppressor protein.complex formation between the human papilloma virus type 16 e7 protein (hpv-16 e7) and the retinoblastoma growth suppressor protein (rb) is believed to contribute to the process of cellular transformation that leads to cervical carcinoma. genetic analysis of the hpv-16 e7 protein has shown that the segment of e7 homologous to the conserved region 2 of adenovirus 5 e1a protein is involved in both rb binding and e7-mediated cell transformation. we have previously shown that a peptide colinear with ...19921309779
comparative study of in situ hybridization and immunohistochemical techniques for the detection of human papillomavirus in lesions of the uterine cervix.among the techniques currently used for the detection of human papillomavirus (hpv) in genital lesions, only two correlate hpv with the histopathological findings of the lesion: immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization. consequently, we were prompted to carry out a comparative study on both techniques to check their utility and efficacy as routine diagnostic methods. 52 biopsy specimens of uterine cervix diagnosed histopathologically as condylomas and cervical intraepithelial neoplasia+koi ...19921281009
