Abstract

Objectives: To understand the mechanism for the refractoriness of B-chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) cells for Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-induced immortalization. Study Design/Methods: Cultures were initiated with EBV-infected tonsillar B and B-CLL cells. Expression of EBNA-2 and some of the key players regulating G1/S phase transition such as c-myc expression, phosphorylation of Rb protein, expression of G1 cyclins, and the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p27 were followed. Results: In line with earlier studies, EBV infection induced c-myc expression, pRb phosphorylation, D2 and D3 expression, and disappearance of p27 in normal B cells. In contrast, EBV-infected B-CLL cells remained resting and they did not express c-myc; cyclin D2, ppRb and cyclin D3 were seen only in occasional cells. Importantly, p27 expression was maintained. Conclusions: In B-CLL cells, the expression of the EBV-encoded nuclear proteins EBNAs is not followed by entrance to the cell cycle. Thus, the difference in the interaction of EBV-normal B cells and EBV- B-CLL cells is already apparent early after infection.
