(A) Representative* list of cellular/viral protein interactions involved in DNA virus-related oncogenic transformation; (B) p53 and Rb are central targets of viral oncoproteins. The viral proteins Large T antigen of SV40, E1A/E1B of Adenovirus, and E6/E7 of HPV, are capable of interfering with either Rb and/or p53, altering their activities and thus essential cell cycle check-points. PP2A: Protein Phosphatase 2A; TRAFs:Tumor necrosis Factor Associated. * Additional cellular/viral interactions involved in cell transformation and oncogenetic mechanisms have been described.
