HPV DNA has been detected in up to 99.7% of invasive cervical cancers worldwide.The carcinogenic effect of the "high-risk" HPVs, as defined by their documented association with invasive carcinomas, is thought to be mediated by two viral oncoprotein, E6 and E7, through their action of inactivating the function of two important cellular tumor suppressor, p53 and pRb. It has been demonstrated that the E6 oncoprotein interacts with p53 to promote its degradation, whereas the E7 oncoprotein form complex with Rb, leading to its...
