Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a member of the subfamily of the family and is the prototype for the genus. Two types of EBV, EBV-1 and EBV-2, have been identified in most human populations. The major identified differences between the EBV-1 and EBV-2 genomes exist in the latent infection cycle nuclear antigen genes for EBV nuclear antigen 2 (EBNA-2); EBNA-LP; and EBNA-3A, -3B, and -3C and in the small, nonpolyadenylated RNA EBER-1 and -2. B lymphocytes are the primary cellular reservoir of EBV infection. The initial stage of infection involves a high-affinity interaction between the major EBV outer envelope glycoprotein, gp350, with CD21 on the surface of B cells. EBER genes are the most abundantly transcribed EBV genes in latently infected cells (104 to 105 copies/cell), distantly followed by the latent membrane protein 1 (LMP-1) gene, which, in turn, is significantly more abundant than the EBNA and LMP-2 genes. The EBV genes expressed during the late stages of lytic infection mostly encode structural viral proteins, which permit virion maintenance and egress. The viral glycoproteins are all encoded by late genes, which are of potential importance in antibody-mediated immunity to EBV. The recent demonstration that EBV can infect smooth-muscle cells in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected individuals may help explain the role of EBV in the pathogenesis of leiomyomas.
