Scientists map interactions between head and neck cancer and HPV virus: Connecting the dots between human papillomavirus and smoking-related cancers
First, using a method called mass spectrometry, they discovered a total of 137 interactions between HPV and human proteins. By overlaying the protein interaction and genomics data, the scientists discovered that the HPV virus targets the same human proteins that are frequently mutated in smoking-related cancers. Eckhardt showed that the HPV protein E1 interacts with the human protein KEAP1, which is often mutated in smoking-related cancers.
