CONCLUSIONS: For brain cancer patients, HCMV-reactivation after the start of radiochemotherapy is a frequent risk for cognitively detrimental but treatable encephalopathy and premature death. Routinely performed HCMV-diagnostics, assessing basophil counts and study-based anti-viral regimens are necessary to combat this hidden threat. PMID: 32060103 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most aggressive form of primary human gliomas. While chemotherapy using the DNA alkylating agent temozolomide (TMZ) is a first line treatment for GBMs, the development of resistance to TMZ is a common limitation to successful treatment. Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is a ubiquitous β-herpesvirus that establishes a lifelong infection latent infection in host haematopoetic cells, where lytic replication of the virus is silenced. HCMV can also establish a persistent infection in hosts, where low levels of virus are lytically produced. Furthermore, multiple studies hav...

Glioblastoma is the most aggressive intracranial tumor and diffuse migration is the leading cause of death. Recent evidence has indicated that heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein A2B1 (hnRNP A2B1) is overexpressed in human glioblastoma tissue and enhances glioblastoma invasion in vitro. We found by mass spectrometry that hnRNP A2B1 interacts with human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) immediate early 86 protein (IE86, ie2 gene-encoded) in malignant glioma cells (U87MG) infected with HCMV. However, the role of hnRNP A2 B1 in glioblastoma development remains poorly understood. Here, we report that hnRNP A2B1 is highly expressed in...
