Functional conservation of HTLV-1 Rex balances the immune pressure for sequence variation in the Rex gene

Abstract:

Naturally occurring mutations in Human T-cell Leukemia Virus Type 1 (HTLV-1) Tax protein lead to loss of recognition by cytotoxic T-lymphocytes. Most of these mutations also abolish or severely impair the transactivation function of Tax. Ninety percent of the Rex gene, which encodes the viral regulator of mRNA splicing (Rex), overlaps with theTax gene. In this paper, we report that four previously described point mutations in Tax that abolished CTL recognition and a...
