Serologic studies have shown that most adults have been exposed to HPyVs, and cross-reactivity studies have shown antigenic similarities between simian virus 40 and BK polyomavirus and, to a lesser extent, between simian virus 40 and JC polyomavirus (3-5).
Although the scientific community accepted that the simian virus made a trans-species leap to become the deadly infection known as AIDS, it does not explain how a relatively benign virus became lethal.
The new strain differs from the three known strains of HIV related to the simian virus that occurs in chimpanzees; the new strain appears to be closely related to a form recently discovered in wild gorillas, researchers report in Nature Medicine.
In order to investigate the role of histone acetylation in establishing an infection by simian virus 40 (SV40), we have analyzed formalin fixed and unfixed SV40 chromosomes obtained 30 minutes and 3 hours post-infection for the presence of tetraacetylated histone H4 and di-acetylated histone H3 using a combination of chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) techniques including quantitative ChIP assays with competitive PCR, depletion analyses, and competitive ChIP analysis.
