Mnk1 activation promotes lytic EBV epithelial cell migration

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), an oncovirus, has been shown to promote cancer cell metastasis – including such features and cell motility, […]

Viral manipulation of glycolysis.

For efficient viral replication, numerous different families of viruses, including Herpesviruses, have evolved the ability to manipulate cellular metabolism. Several […]

The Epstein-Barr virus and Mnk1/2 connection.

Stemming from our mTOR work, we have identified Mnk1/2 (MAPK-interacting kinase 1/2) as an interesting cellular modulator of EBV lytic […]

Epstein-Barr virus lytic replication and the mTOR pathway

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), a member of the Herpesviridae family, is a widespread pathogen that is associated with a variety of […]

Link between Influenza A virus infection and glucose metabolism

As new influenza virus strains emerge, finding new mechanisms to control viral infection is imperative.  We have found that we […]

Drosophila as a model system for viral protein function and interactions

We have successfully utilized Drosophila melanogaster as a model system to identify and study viral protein- host protein interactions.  We […]
