    During Ebola virus (EBOV) infection a significant amount of surface glycoprotein GP is shed from infected cells in a soluble form due to cleavage by cellular metalloprotease TACE. Shed GP and non-structural secreted glycoprotein sGP, both expressed from the same GP gene, have been detected in...

    The signal transducer and activator of transcription molecules (STATs) play key roles in cytokine-induced signal transduction. However, their role in cell growth has not been clear. In the present study, we show that STAT3 plays a key role in the G1 to S phase cell-cycle transition induced by...
