SV40 large tumor antigen can regulate some cellular transcripts in a positive fashion.


Eleven cDNA clones identified from a cDNA library prepared from the mRNA fraction of SV40 transformed cells detected, by hybridization, higher levels of cellular mRNA in SV40-transformed cells than in nontransformed cells. Three of these cDNA clones detected levels of cellular mRNA that were more than 100-fold greater in SV40tsA transformed cell lines grown at the permissive temperature than in those grown at the nonpermissive temperature. Northern blot hybridizations confirmed these results and in some cases detected RNA species of multiple sizes that were regulated in a temperature-dependent fashion in SV40tsA transformed cell lines. Infection of 3T3 cells with SV40 stimulated the levels of RNAs complementary to these cDNA clones. The results demonstrate that the SV40 large T antigen can regulate the steady state levels of some cellular RNA species.
