Abstract: Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) has both latent and lytic phases of replication. The molecular switch that triggers a reactivation is still unclear. Cells from S phase of cell cycle provide apt conditions for an active reactivation. In order to specifically delineate the Raman spectra of cells supporting KSHV reactivation we followed a novel approach where cells were sorted based on the state of infection (latent Vs lytic) by a flow cytometer and then analyzed by the Raman tweezers. The Raman bands at 785 813 830 1095 and 1128 cm-1 are specifically altered in cells supporting KSHV reactivation. These 5 peaks make up the Raman fingerprint of cells supporting KSHV reactivation. The physiological relevance of the changes in these peaks with respect to KSHV reactivation is discussed in the following report.
