Abstract: The only member of the Epstein-Barr virus family of nuclear proteins (EBNAs) expressed during type I and type II latent infections is EBNA-1. This is in contrast to type III latency, during which all six nuclear proteins are expressed from a common transcription unit. The exclusive expression of EBNA-1 during type I and II latency is mediated through a recently identified promoter, Fp. The objective of this study was to characterize Fp in the Burkitt lymphoma cell background, where it is known to be differenti…
