Summary 28 anticancer agents have been surveyed for Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) activating potency. Two vinca alkaloids with antitubulin activity, vinblastine (VLB) and vincristine (VCR), enhanced the expression of EBV early antigens (EA) in a latently infected human lymphoblastoid cell line (Raji), when used in combination withn-butyrate. Other antitubulin agents, colchicine, colcemid, and podophyllotoxin, had the same effect, although their effects were less than that of the potent tumor promoter, 12-O-tetradecanoyl phorbol-13-acetate (TPA).
