In Vitro SUMOylation Assay to Study SUMO E3 Ligase Activity Wan-Shan Yang1, Mel Campbell2, Hsing-Jien Kung2,3,4,5, Pei-Ching Chang1,6 1Institute of Microbiology and Immunology, National Yang-Ming University, 2UC Davis Cancer Center, University of California, Davis, 3Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine, University of California, Davis, 4Institute for Translational Medicine, College of Medical Science and Technology, Taipei Medical University, 5Division of Molecular and Genomic Medicine, National Health Research Institutes, 6Center for Infectious Disease and Cancer Research, Kaohsiung Medical University Unlike ubiquitin ligases, few E3 SUMO ligases have been identified. This modified in vitro SUMOylation protocol is able to identify novel SUMO E3 ligases by an in vitro reconstitution assay.

Long Non-coding RNA and Epigenetic Gene Regulation of KSHV Viruses. | Pubmed ID: 25375882 Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV/human herpesvirus 8) is a γ-herpesvirus linked to Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) and two lymphoproliferative disorders, primary effusion lymphoma (PEL or body-cavity B-lymphoma [BCBL]) and a subset of Multicentric Castleman's Disease. During lytic growth, pervasive viral transcription generating a variety of transcripts with uncertain protein-coding potential has been described on a genome-wide scale in β- and γ-herpesviruses. One class of such RNAs is called long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs). KSHV encodes a viral lncRNA known as polyadenylated nuclear RNA (PAN RNA), a copious early gene product. PAN RNA has been implicated in KSHV gene expression, replication, and immune modulation. PAN RNA expression is required for optimal expression of the entire KSHV lytic gene expression program. Latent KSHV episomes are coated with viral latency-associated nuclear antigen (LANA). LANA rapidly dissociates from episomes during reactivation. Here we review recent studies suggesting that PAN RNA may function as a viral lncRNA, including a role in the facilitation of LANA-episomal dissociation during lytic replication.
