Human T-cell leukemia virus type 2 post-transcriptional control protein p28 is required for viral infectivity and persistence in vivo-2

μg of TK-, and varying concentrations (0.2–0.4 μg) of CMVp28AU1 or CMVΔp28AU1 expression vectors as indicated. (A) Tax function was measured as firefly luciferase activity from LTR-2-Luc normalized to luciferase activity. RLU, relative light units. (B) Western blot analysis was performed on lysates to confirm expression of p28 (AU1 antibody) or β-actin as a loading control. As expected, results indicated that the Δp28 mutation disrupts p28 protein expression.
