Actin in HPV-16 Oncoprotein
|Title:||Actin in HPV-16 Oncoprotein|
Infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV) is associated with various cancers. Researchers are working to understand the processes by which HPV can transform a healthy cell into a cancerous one. This image shows actin (stained in green), a protein involved in cell motion, in HPV-16 E6 and E7-expressing human foreskin keratinocytes.
