Background and results
1. The conserved herpesvirus kinases target the DNA damage response (DDR) pathway.
2. The EBV kinase BGLF4 induces the DDR and regulates key lytic viral genes through TIP60.
3. TIP60 knockdown impairs and γ herpesvirus replication.
4. Identification of key cellular targets of the conserved herpesvirus kinases will facilitate the development of broadly effective anti-viral strategies.
