Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-encoded nuclear antigen 1 (EBNA1) includes a unique glycine-alanine repeat domain that inhibits the endogenous presentation of cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) epitopes through the class I pathway by blocking proteasome-dependent degradation of this antigen. This immune evasion mechanism has been implicated in the pathogenesis of EBV-associated diseases. Here, we show that cotranslational ubiquitination combined with N-end rule targeting enhances the intracellular...[Show more]
