The adenovirus E1B-55K protein is a multifunctional phosphoprotein that regulates nuclear to cytoplasmic export of host cell and viral mRNAs during lytic viral growth. E1B-55K also blocks apoptosis by binding and functionally inactivating the human tumor suppressor protein p53. Here, we show that E1B-55K interacts with histone deacetylase 1 (HDAC1) and the transcriptional corepressor protein mSin3A, both in the adenovirus-transformed 293 cell line and during a lytic adenovirus infection. Furthermore, we show that the central amino acids 156-261 in E1B-55K are necessary for efficient HDAC1 interaction. Importantly, the E1B-55K/mSin3A/HDAC1 complex is also enzymatically active, catalyzing deacetylation of a histone substrate peptide. Collectively, our results suggest that E1B-55K interaction with mSin3A/HDAC1 containing complexes may be significant for one or several of the multiple activities ascribed to this protein.
