To investigate the qualitative and quantitative detection of ATF5 activated transcription factors in tumor tissue by using the method of transfecting IE2 mouse tumor to explore the effect of HCMV immediate early protein IE86 on ATF5 function. Transfected mice were treated with GL261 mouse glioma cells. The expression of transcription factor ATF5 in the tumor tissues of tumor-bearing mice was detected by PCR and Western-blotting methods. The experimental results showed that the expression of ATF5 was higher in IE2 transgenic mice than in normal mice. ATF5 is highly expressed in IE2 transgenic mice. ATF5 is a transcription factor closely related to apoptosis and plays an important role in apoptosis, differentiation and development.
