Abstract

Interactions between the Tax transactivator of human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1) and a cell cycle regulatory protein have been examined. We report cooperative stimulation of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 gene expression by Tax and a regulator of cell cycle progression, the p21 cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor (CKI). This cooperativity results from the effect of p21 on transcriptional coactivation by Tax-induced NF-κB. This effect was abrogated by a mutation in Tax which specifically eliminated NF-κB induction, was inhibitable by IκB-α, and was markedly reduced in human immunodeficiency virus reporter plasmids with mutant κB sites. These studies demonstrate that transcriptional activation by Tax is influenced by cell cycle regulatory proteins.
