Abstract

BGLF4 is a serine/threonine protein kinase encoded by Epstein–Barr virus. One of the physiological substrates of BGLF4 is viral transactivator BZLF1. In the present study, it was demonstrated that alanine substitution of the serine residue at position 209 (S209A) in BZLF1 eliminated phosphorylation of the protein by BGLF4 . The S209A mutation in BZLF1, as well as a K102I mutation in BGLF4, which inactivated catalytic activity of the viral kinase, also inhibited formation of a stable BGLF4–BZLF1 complex and downregulation of BZLF1 autotransactivation activity mediated by BGLF4. These results indicate that formation of a stable complex of BGLF4–BZLF1 enables downregulation of BZLF1 autoregulation activity and it appears that BGLF4 phosphorylation of BZLF1 may be involved in these processes.
