Modified from [111, 222]) of its two oncoproteins, E6 and E7 [107, 108]. Integration requires a break in the circular viral DNA sequence which tends to disrupt the E2 gene, rendering it inactive and thereby allowing E6/E7 transcription to continue unsuppressed [109]. Unlike the multistep process of cumulative mutations and chromosomal losses classically described in non-HPV head and neck cancer, HPV-related carcinogenesis involves fewer alterations in genetic material [110]. It appears that important steps in the pathway of head and neck carcinogenesis as proposed by Califano et al.
