Epstein–Barr virus nuclear antigen 2
EBNA-2 is the main viral transactivator, switching transcription from the Wp promoters[clarification needed] initially used after infection to the Cp promoter.[clarification needed] Together with EBNA-3C,[clarification needed] it also activates the LMP-1 promoter.[clarification needed] It is known to bind the host RBP-Jκ protein[clarification needed] that is a key player in the Notch pathway. EBNA-2 is essential for EBV-mediated growth transformation.
