Abstract: “NF-kappa B Activation Stimulates Transcription and Replication of Xenotropic Murine Leukemia Virus-Related Virus in Human B-lineage and Prostate Carcinoma Cells” – Source: Journal of Virology, Jan 26, 2011

Authors: S Sakakibara, et al., National Cancer Institute

Xenotropic murine leukemia virus-related virus (XMRV) is a gammaretrovirus linked to prostate carcinoma and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Here we report that NF-kappaB [NF-kB] activation can markedly increase XMRV production.

The inflammatory cytokine TNFalpha, which activates NF-?B, significantly augmented viral Gag protein production in XMRV-infected cells.

Reporter assays showed that TNFalpha and Epstein-Barr virus LMP1 (latent membrane protein 1), an intrinsic NF-kB activator, increased LTR-dependent XMRV transcription.

We identify two NF-?B binding sites (designated kB-1 and kB-2) in the long terminal repeat (LTR) U3 region of XMRV, and demonstrate that both sites bind to the NF-?B component p65/RelA.

Mutation of the kB-1 site, but not the kB-2 site, impaired responsiveness to TNFalpha and LMP1 in reporter assays.

A mutant XMRV at the kB-1 site replicated significantly less efficiently than the wild-type XMRV in the prostate carcinoma LNCaP, DU145 and PC3 cell lines, HEK293 cells, the EBV-immortalized cell line IB4 and the Burkitt's lymphoma cell line BJAB.

These results:

• Demonstrate that TNFalpha and EBV LMP1 enhance XMRV replication in prostate carcinoma and B-lineage cells through the kB-1 site in the XMRV LTR,

• Suggesting that inflammation, EBV infection and other conditions leading to NF-kB activation may promote XMRV spread in man.
