UV-enhanced reactivation in mammalian cells: increase by caffeine.
Lytle CD, Iacangelo AL, Lin CH, Goddard JG
It has been reported that caffeine decreases UV-enhanced reactivation of UV-irradiated Herpes simplex virus in CV-1 monkey kidney cells. That occurred when there was no delay between cell irradiation and virus infection. In the present study, virus infection was delayed following cell irradiation to allow an `induction¿period separate from the `expression¿period which occurs during the virus infection. Thus, the effects of caffeine on `induction¿and `expression¿could be determined separately. Caffeine increased the expression of UV-enhanced reactivation, while causing a small decrease in the `induction¿of enhanced reactivation.
