Description Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) belongs to the gamma-(2)-herpesvirus subfamily and has been closely linked to the Kaposi’s sarcoma, primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) and multicentric Castleman’s disease. The genome of KSHV is 165-170 kb and contains at least 88 open reading frames. KSHV K8 and K8.1 open reading frames are juxtaposed and span from nucleotide (nt) 74850 to 76695 of the virus genome. A K8 pre-mRNA overlaps the entire K8.1 coding region, and alternative splicing of KSHV K8 and K8.1 pre-mRNAs each produces three isoforms (α, β, and γ) of the mRNAs.
Immunogen Purified recombinant fragment of KSHV K8α expressed in E. Coli.
Formulation Ascitic fluid containing 0.03% sodium azide.

Protein Information
Name K8
Function Plays a role in viral gene regulation and seems to be essential for KSHV reactivation. Disrupts host G1 cell cycle control thus allowing viral transcription and translation to proceed at the early stages of infection. Catalyzes its own SUMO modification as well as that of its interacting partners such as host TP53 AND RB1.
