While the HPV-16 E5 protein appears to modulate endosomal pH and signal transduction pathways, genetic analysis of its biological activities has been hampered by low (usually undetectable) levels of expression in stable cell lines.
"Sequence analysis of the native HPV-16 E5 gene revealed that infrequent-use codons are...
