Cyclin' on the viral path to destruction

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review

Abstract

Viruses are the masters of trickery. They mimic, manipulate and usurp cellular functions, but always with an interesting twist. γ-herpesvirus genomes encode an abundance of homologues of cellular factors, including cyclin and Bcl-2. These viral homologues differ from their cellular counterparts in that the viral proteins have gained new functions and eliminated others to harness the cell and benefit the virus.
