Background HTLV-1 causes two distinct human diseases, HTLV-1-associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP) and adult T cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL). The glycoproteins encoded by the env gene of HTLV-1 are essential for interaction with an unidentified receptor on the surface of target cells and play a crucial role in the infection process. Encoded by HTLV-1 Tax is a phospho-oncoprotein that functions as a transcriptional activator. Tax has the ability to modulate the expression and function of many cellular genes and has been crucial to understanding the HTLV-1-mediated transformation of cells. In activating cellular gene expression, Tax impinges upon several cellular signal-transduction pathways, including the CREB/ATF and NFkB pathways. In addition, Tax deregulates the expression of downstream genes, which mediate cell cycle control.
