The Hepatitis B virus (HBV) Core Protein Enhances the Transcription Activation of CRE via the CRE/CREB/CBP pathway
Sat, 02 May 2015 00:00:00 +0100 | Antiviral Therapy
In this study, we investigated the function and mechanisms of HBc in regulating CRE transcriptional activation using the HepG2 cell line. Our results showed the following: 1). HBc expression significantly increases HBV CRE transcriptional activation; 2). Phosphorylation of the serine residues in the arginine-rich domain (ARD) of HBc protein impacts the function of transcriptional activation by the CRE; 3). HBc protein significantly increases HBV CRE transcriptional activation following forskolin treatment; 4). HBc nonspecifically binds to CRE and enhances the binding of the cAMP response element-binding protein (CREB) to CRE; and 5). HBc increases the concurrent accumulation of CREB and CBP at the CRE region. HBc activates Enh I through its binding to CRE, increasing the concurrent accumul...

[PERSPECTIVES] Hepatitis B Virus Epidemiology
Fri, 01 May 2015 00:00:00 +0100 | Cold Spring Harbor perspectives in medicine
The epidemiology of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is geographically diverse, with population prevalence, age and mode of acquisition, and likelihood of progression to chronic infection mutually interdependent. The burden of chronic HBV infection is increasingly being recognized, with cirrhosis and liver cancer attributable to HBV continuing to increase. The outcomes of chronic HBV infection are affected by a range of factors, including viral genotype, the presence of coinfections with other blood-borne viruses, and the impact of other causes of liver disease. The increased recognition of HBV infection as a leading cause of death globally has resulted in the development of new structures and policies at the international level; immediate attention to implementing these strategies is now...
