Magnesium ions enhance the transfer of Human Papillomavirus E2 protein from non-specific to specific binding sites (1999)
Journal Article
Lewis, H., & Gaston, K. (1999). Magnesium ions enhance the transfer of Human Papillomavirus E2 protein from non-specific to specific binding sites. Journal of Molecular Biology, 294(4), 885-896. doi:10.1006/jmbi.1999.3314

The human papillomavirus 16 E2 protein binds to four specific DNA sequences present within the HPV 16 genome and regulates viral gene expression and DNA replication. However, the E2 protein can also bind tightly to non-specific DNA sequences. Here, w...

Cellular transcirption factors regulate human papillomavirus type 16 gene expression by binding to a subset of the DNA sequences recognised by the viral E2 protein (1999)
Journal Article
Lewis, H., Webster, K., Sanchez-Perez, A., & Gaston, K. (1999). Cellular transcirption factors regulate human papillomavirus type 16 gene expression by binding to a subset of the DNA sequences recognised by the viral E2 protein. Journal of General Virology, 80(8), 2087-2096. doi:10.1099/0022-1317-80-8-2087

Human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV-16) is a DNA tumour virus that has been implicated in the development of cervical cancer. The HPV-16 E2 protein binds to four sites that are present upstream of the viral P97 promoter and regulates transcription of t...
