Abstract

Like other herpesviruses, Epstein-Barr virus persists in its host through its ability to establish a latent infection that periodically reactivates. Latent membrane protein 2A (LMP2A) regulates reactivation from latency by interfering with normal B cell signal transduction processes, and may define a new class of regulators of herpesvirus latency.
