baculovirus treatment fully protects mice against a lethal challenge of fmdv.foot-and-mouth disease virus (fmdv) causes a highly contagious and economically devastating disease that affects cattle, swine, goat and sheep among others. fmdv is able to overcome the initial host innate immune response by inhibiting the induction of antiviral molecules at both the transcriptional and the translational levels. it has been demonstrated that fmdv a/arg/2001 causes the death of adult c57bl/6 mice within 72h. we evaluated the capacity of autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis ...201020580746
large-scale production of porcine mature interleukin-18 (il-18) in silkworms using a hybrid baculovirus expression this report, a hybrid baculovirus expression system, which means a hybrid virus of the autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus and the bombyx mori nuclear polyhedrosis virus, was used for the large-scale production of porcine mature interleukin-18 (il-18) in silkworms. two recombinant hybrid baculoviruses containing cdna of the porcine precursor il-18 and the porcine caspase-1 were constructed and were used to infect silkworm larvae. after the co-infection of the two viruses, porcin ...200312655117
gene transfer into hepatocytes and human liver tissue by baculovirus vectors.gene therapy of liver diseases requires the development of efficient vectors for gene transfer in vivo. retroviral and adenoviral vectors have been shown to deliver genes efficiently into hepatocytes in vitro and in vivo. however, these vectors do not allow for exclusive infection of the liver which would be highly advantageous for in vivo gene therapy strategies. we have recently demonstrated that genetically modified baculoviruses (autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus) efficiently ...19968930653
nucleocapsid protein n of lelystad virus: expression by recombinant baculovirus, immunological properties, and suitability for detection of serum antibodies.the orf7 gene, encoding the nucleocapsid protein n of lelystad virus (lv), was inserted downstream of the p10 promoter into autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus (baculovirus). the resulting recombinant baculovirus, designated bac-orf7, expressed a 15-kda protein in insect cells. this protein was similar in size to the n protein expressed by lv in cl2621 cells when it was analyzed on sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gels. the n protein expressed by bac-orf7 was immunoprecipitate ...19958574824
cloning and expression of bovine and porcine interleukin-2 in baculovirus and analysis of species cross-reactivity.the cdnas encoding bovine and porcine interleukin-2 (il-2) have been expressed using the baculovirus autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus as a vector in insect cells. insect cells infected with recombinant viruses secreted bovine and porcine il-2 into the culture medium, with biological activities for maintaining the proliferation of homologous cells. when the activities of these two il-2 proteins and commercially available human il-2 were tested on heterologous cells differences we ...19948042283
expression of the lassa virus nucleocapsid protein in insect cells infected with a recombinant baculovirus: application to diagnostic assays for lassa virus infection.the coding region of the gene for the nucleocapsid protein of lassa virus has been inserted into the genome of autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus (acnpv) using the transfer vector pacym1, so that expression of the foreign dna is under the control of the promoter of the acnpv polyhedrin gene. infection of cultured spodoptera frugiperda cells with recombinant virus resulted in the synthesis of high levels of a protein that was indistinguishable from the authentic lassa virus protein ...19902406367
expression of htlv-i envelope protein fused to hydrophobic amino-terminal peptide of baculovirus polyhedrin in insect cells and its application for serological assays.the envelope of human t-cell leukemia virus type i (htlv-i) consists of two glycoproteins gp46 and p20e. recombinant envelope proteins were produced by using an expression vector derived from insect baculovirus, bombyx mori nuclear polyhedrosis virus. polyhedrin fusion proteins c182, n147, and n287 contained whole region p20e, c-terminal half of gp46, and almost whole region gp46, respectively. n147 and n287 were suggested to be processed forms resulting from internal cleavage by cellular enzyme ...19902078412
expression of biologically active recombinant porcine gm-csf by baculovirus gene expression system.the full length porcine granulocyte/macrophage colony stimulating factor (gm-csf) cdna, including secretion signal peptide coding region was recloned into baculovirus transfer vector pacym1. the vector was then transfected with autographica californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus (acnpv) dna into sf21ae cells and the recombinant virus acpgm was recovered. recombinant porcine gm-csf (rpgm-csf) was obtained from the serum-free culture medium of tn5 cells infected with the acpgm virus, and was shown ...19989682962
baculovirus as mammalian cell expression vector for gene therapy: an emerging strategy.the monopoly of insect cells to host baculovirus autographa californica multiple nuclear polyhedrosis virus (acmnpv) as a eukaryotic gene expression system has been shattered with the growing evidence that it also infects mammalian cells in culture. although acmnpv fails to replicate in vertebrate cells, it does express alien genes with levels of expression that are dependent on the strength of the promoter used to drive transcription of the foreign gene. it also has been reported that the recom ...200212095297
the use of a protein a conjugate in an indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa) of four closely related baculoviruses from spodoptera species.the virus particles from four closely related insect nuclear polyhedrosis virus (npvs) isolated from their homologous spodoptera spp. hosts were examined using an indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa), employing both swine anti-rabbit and protein a conjugate. results from both systems indicated that s. littoralis npv is serologically distinct from the other three viruses, s. frugiperda npv, s. exempta npv and s. exigua npv, which are closely related. the relatedness of these viruses ...19826754866
