Inactivation of p53 is needed during adenovirus type 5 DNA replication. E1B55K, an adenovirus early protein, has been reported to interact with p53 and inhibit p53 transactivation. Previous studies have shown that adeno-associated virus (AAV) type 2 could reduce the transforming potential of adenovirus by rescuing p53 from adenovirus-mediated degradation, but the details are not clear yet. We detected the Rep78-p53 interaction by co-immunoprecipitation assay. The co-localization assay revealed that Rep78 inhibits E1B55K-mediated p53 nuclear exportation. However, Rep78 did not detectably influence p53 stability and could not relieve the transcriptional inactivation of p53, as E1B55K could not be replaced from the p53-E1B55K complex by Rep78. Our results reveal a new possible mechanism that AAV-2 Rep78 inhibits adenovirus 5 by relocalizing p53 in the nucleus, which may shed some light on the regulatory mechanism of AAV-2 on its helper virus, adenovirus.
