Infection of Kaposi's sarcoma associated herpes virus (KSHV) has been linked to the development of primary effusion lymphoma (PEL), which is characterized by the loss of expression of B cell markers and effusions in the body cavities. This unique clinical feature of PEL has been attributed to their distinctive gene expression profile which shows overexpression of genes in various signaling pathways. KSHV-encoded latent protein vFLIP K13 has been shown to promote the survival and proliferation of PEL cells. In this study, we have employed gene array analysis followed by bioinformatics analysis of coordinated transcriptional factors network as well as biological pathways to characterize the effect of K13 on PEL-derived BCBL1 cells. We observed that genes associated with Cytokine signaling, Cell death, NF-kappaB and Cell adhesion pathways were differentially regulated by K13.

Integrated microarray and multiplex cytokine analyses of Kaposi's Sarcoma Asssociated Herpesvirus viral FLICE Inhibitory Protein K13 affected genes and cytokines in human blood vascular endothelial cells. The KSHV-encoded K13 protein is one of the few proteins to be expressed in latently-infected spindle cells and the ectopic expression of K13 in human vascular endothelial cells is sufficient to transform them into spindle cells.

We report here that KSHV viral infection targets the NF-kB pathway which is crucial for cell survival. KSHV protein vFLIP K13 is known to directly interact with cellular protein NEMO of the NF-kB pathway. We used gene expression array to suggets that the interaction of K13 with NEMO is important to activate NF-kB pathway.
NEMO is essential for Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus-encoded vFLIP K13-induced gene expression and protection against death receptor-induced cell death, and its N-terminal 251 residues are sufficient for this process.

ROR?t is well recognized as the lineage defining transcription factor for TH17 cell development. However, the cell-intrinsic mechanisms that negatively regulate TH17 cell development and autoimmunity remain poorly understood. Here we demonstrate that the transcriptional repressor REV-ERBa is exclusively expressed in TH17 cells, competes with ROR?t for their shared DNA consensus sequence, and negatively regulates TH17 cell development via repression of genes traditionally characterized as ROR?t-dependent, including Il17a. Deletion of REV-ERBa enhanced TH17-mediated pro-inflammatory cytokine expression, exacerbating experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) and colitis. Treatment with REV-ERB-specific synthetic ligands, which have similar phenotypic properties as ROR? modulators, suppressed TH17 cell development, was effective in colitis intervention studies, and significantly decreased the onset, severity, and relapse rate in several models of EAE without affecting thymic cellularity. Our results establish that REV-ERBa negatively regulates pro-inflammatory TH17 responses in vivo and identifies the REV-ERBs as potential targets for the treatment of TH17-mediated autoimmune diseases. Overall design: 10 samples; 5 conditions with 2 replicates per condition
