Abstract

To characterize the sequence variation of the gp350/220 and explore its potential association with EBV-associated tumors, the gp350/220 gene was sequenced from 41 EBV-associated gastric carcinoma (EBVaGC) and 81 nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) biopsies as well as 35 throat washing (TW) samples from healthy donors. Preferential linkages between variants of the N-terminus of gp350/220 and EBNA3C variants were detected, and type A/BLLF1-a was the dominant variant in this study. The dominant variant in the C-terminal region of gp350/220 was 9P. The similar distribution of gp350/220 variants in NPC, EBVaGC and healthy donors suggest that gp350/220 variations are geographically restricted rather than tumor-specific polymorphisms.
