LMP2 transcription in undifferentiated nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), which is consistently associated with the Epstein-Barr virus, was investigated. Fifteen NPC specimens were analyzed by Northern (RNA) blot and RNA-based polymerase chain reaction; the LMP2A transcript was present in all specimens except one. In some specimens the LMP2B tr…
