Primate polyomavirus genomes all contain an open reading frame at the 5' end of the late coding region called the agnogene. A simian virus 40 agnoprotein with unknown functions has previously been demonstrated. We now show that a BK virus agnoprotein appears in the perinuclear area and cytoplasm late in the infectious cycle. It is phosphorylated in vivo and coimmunoprecipitates with a subset of host cell proteins.
