TGF-β-induced lytic cycle in latency I infected MUTU-1 cells results in decreased levels of IFI16 protein. BJAB (a) or MUTU-1 cells (b) were induced with TGF-β (5 ng/mL) or left untreated for 96 h. 96 h after induction, cells were harvested and prepared for IFA as described previously (Fig. 3). Slides were stained with primary antibodies to IFI16 (red) and EBV glycoprotein gp350/220 (green). Cell nuclei were visualized by DAPI staining (blue). Magnification, 40X. Red boxes are enlarged in the far right panels with white arrows indicating IFI16 puncta and yellow arrows showing gp350/220. A representative experiment out of three is shown
