Abstract: To evaluate the role of Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) nuclear antigen 3A (EBNA3A) in the continuous proliferation of EBV-infected primary B lymphocytes as lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs), we derived LCLs that are infected with a recombinant EBV genome that expresses EBNA3A fused to a 4-hydroxy-tamoxifen (4HT)-dependent mutant estrogen receptor hormone binding domain (EBNA3AHT). The LCLs grew similarly to wild-type LCLs in medium with 4HT despite a reduced level of EBNA3AHT fusion protein expression. In the absenc…
