Description

Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) are epitheliotropic viruses, and their life cycle is intimately linked to the stratification and differentiation state of the host epithelial tissues. The kinetics of E5a protein expression during the complete viral life cycle has been studied and the highest level was found to be coincidental with the onset of virion morphogenesis [PMID: 9721230].
