From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

EBV nuclear antigen 3 is a family of viral proteins associated with Epstein-Barr virus.

  • EBNA-3A
  • EBNA-3B
  • EBNA-3C

These genes also bind the host RBP-Jκ protein.

EBNA-3C can recruit a ubiquitin-ligase and has been shown to target cell cycle regulators like pRb[1][2]
