The Antiproliferative Effect of the “Early” Protein E2 of Papillomavirus HPV16 on Testis Tumors of Mice Induced by the Injection of HeLa Cells

The antiproliferative effect of the “early” protein E2 of the high-risk oncogenic human papillomavirus HPV16 on mouse testis tumors, which were induced by the intramuscular injection of HeLa cells, was discovered. The regression of tumors was maximum in the first 2 days after the oral vaccination with HPV16 E2 (500 mg per mouse) and then gradually decreased to the control variant. A typical monolayer of HeLa cells on the cultivation flask bottom, of which only 18% were functionally active, appeared after seeding testis tissue cells on DMEM medium.
