  • RelevanceThe Epstein Barr virus (EBV) is a human herpes virus 4 (HHV4) that infects and establishes latency in B-lymphocytes. Primary infection leads to a life-long past infection which is normally asymptomatic. EBV expresses a number of genes, however, Epstein Barr nuclear antigen 1 (EBNA1) p72 is the only viral protein which characterizes EBV past-infection. p23 is one of the two small viral capsid antigens (VCA). EBV p23 is a viral late complex associated with virion particles and consists of two gene products, BFRF3 and BLRF2. EBV has a worldwide distribution, with over 90% of the adult population showing evidence of past infection. The virus, acquired during childhood, usually causes no symptoms. However, in Western societies, 10 to 20% of adolescents and young adults develop acute infectious mononucleosis (IM). In humans, EBV is also associated with cancer, in particular Burkitt's lymphoma, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, Hodgkin's disease, and immunoblastic lymphoma.
