Description: The adenovirus E1B-55K and E4orf6 proteins cooperate during virus infection while performing several tasks that contribute to a productive infection, including the selective nucleocytoplasmic transport of late viral mRNA. Previous studies have shown that the E4orf6 protein retains the E1B-55K protein in the nucleus of human and monkey cells, but not in those of rodents, suggesting that primate-specific cellular factors contribute to the E4orf6-mediated retention of the E1B-55K protein in the nucleus. In an effort to identify these proposed primate-specific cellular factors, the interaction of the E1B-55K and E4orf6 proteins was studied in a panel of stable human-rodent monochromosomal somatic cell hybrids. Analysis of this panel of cell lines has demonstrated the existence of an activity associated with human chromosome 21 that permits the E1B-55K and E4orf6 proteins to colocalize in the nucleus of a rodent cell. Additional hybrid cells bearing portions of human chromosome 21 were used to map this activity to a 10-megabase-pair segment of the chromosome, extending from 21q22.12 to a region near the q terminus. Strikingly, this region also facilitates the expression of adenovirus late genes in a rodent cell background while having little impact on the expression of early viral genes.
