Abstract:Human papillomavirus type 33 (HPV-33)-specific early region transcripts in a tonsillar carcinoma were analyzed by using the RNA polymerase chain reaction method. A total of five cDNA species including species with potential to encode E6*I, E6*II, and E6*III, could be identified. As determined by 3' cDNA end mapping, one E6*I cDNA species was found to utilize a novel early region poly(A) site and was polyadenylated at or near the putative initiation codon of the El open reading frame (ORF). Compared with the HP…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
