Disease relevance of SV40gp7


High impact information on SV40gp7

  • Depleting Menin immortalizes primary human fibroblasts and causes a transformation phenotype when coupled with expression of SV40 Large and Small T antigen and oncogenic ras [6].
  • A biochemical role for SV40 small t antigen (t) in the viral infectious cycle that would explain the strong conservation of t structure among papovaviruses and its role as a helper of SV40 large T antigen function in the viral transforming process is not understood [7].
  • METHODS: Two SV40 early-region transgenes containing a deletion that eliminated expression of the small t antigen were expressed in transgenic mice under control of the secretin gene [5].
  • The SV40 small T-antigen, which is similar to PyST in containing a J domain and in binding to the PP2A AC dimer, does not activate the MAP kinase cascade, but does stimulate phosphorylation of AKT in a PP2A-dependent manner [8].
  • Interestingly, the polyoma small T-antigen (PyST), which shares with MTA both partial amino acid sequence homology and cellular location, also activates the MAP kinase cascade [8].

Associations of SV40gp7 with chemical compounds

  • The small-t-antigen-induced increase in Akt and PKC lambda activities was not inhibited by wortmannin, while the ability of small t antigen to enhance glucose transport was inhibited by dominant negative Akt (DN-Akt) expression and Akt small interfering RNA (siRNA) but not by DN-PKC lambda expression or PKC lambda siRNA [21].
  • Furthermore, Shc tyrosine phosphorylation and its association with Grb2 were also elevated in small-t-antigen-expressing cells [22].
  • Elevated levels of cyclic AMP are not involved in growth arrest of CV-1 cells by methylxanthines, and small-t antigen does not alter cyclic AMP levels dramatically after infection [13].
  • In the presence of N-ethylmaleimide, the 37-kDA protein was selectively released from immune complexes, leaving the small-t antigen and 61-kDa protein in association [23].
  • As observed with 10 nM OA, both phospho-ser15-p53 levels and p53 activity were increased by 10 microM fostriecin or SV40 small t-antigen [24].
