The E1B 55kDa produced by human adenovirus type 5 is a multifunctional protein that participates in the regulation of several steps during the viral replication cycle. Previous studies suggest this protein plays an important role in postranscriptional regulation of viral and cellular gene expression, as it is required for the selective accumulation of maximal levels of viral late mRNA in the cytoplasm of the infected cell; however the molecular mechanisms that are altered or regulated by this protein have not been elucidated. A ribonucleoprotein motif that could implicate the direct interaction of the protein with RNA was initially predicted and tested in vitro, but the interaction with RNA could not be detected in infected cells, suggesting the interaction may be weak or transient. Here it was determined that the E1B 55kDa interacts with RNA in the context of the viral infection in non-transformed human cells, and its contribution to the adenovirus replication cycle was evaluated. Using recombinant adeno-viruses with amino acid substitutions or a deletion in the ribonucleoprotein motif the interaction of E1B 55kDa with RNA was found to correlate with timely and efficient viral DNA replication and viral late mRNA accumulation and splicing.
