2001, 16(3): 202

Epidemiologic feature of Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome(HFRS)is endemic outbrak by SEO type nowadays.This article is to study SEO viral genes and the cause of endemic outbreak of HFRS.Virus isolation,McAbs typing and TR-PCR were used to determine a SEO strain isolated from Hebei province in 1996.Nucleotide sequence of S gene was detected.Compared with 75-118.Seoul and SRll strains,the homologies of nucleotide sequence were 64.2%,91.8%,96.8%,respectively,amino acid sequence were 80.5%,95.4%,97.3%,repectively.The high epidemics of HFRS wasnt because of recombinant of viral genes.This study provides important material for the cause of HFRS outbreak.

TTV DNA were detected by polymerase chain reaction-microplate bybridization.The results showed that the positive rate of TTV DNA in 81 normal samples,92 blood donation samples,123 A to G hepatitis,32non-A to G hepatitis samples and 48 proimitive hepatic-carcinoma samples was 3.7%?4.3%?21.1%? 28.1% ?52.0%,respectively.There were significant difference between the normal?the hepatitis group and the primitive hepatic-carcinoma group.Among multiinfection,the infection rate of TTV with HBV was as high as 54.0%.The data showed that TTV infection was very popular in different groups.Some of the normal and blood donation group infected with TTV could become virus carrier.And the hepatits patients were high risk group.In addition,TTV may be transmitted by other means besides blood.TTV infection has close relationship with the increase of ALT and TBIL.

To construct expressive vector for human ScFv against E2 protein of hepatitis C virus (HCV-E2-ScFv),and express soluble HCV-E2-ScFv in E.coli JM109,using phage display technique,the recombinant phages were panned by recombinant E2 antigen which was coated in a microtiter plate,after five rounds of biopanning,46 clones were identified specific to E2 antigen.750 bp fragment could be released from the plasmid of positive phage colones,and the sequenle analysis indicated that we have got the ScFv BNA fragment.And then DNA fragment was inserted into expressive vector pCANTAB5E and E.coli host JM109 was transformed and induced by IPTG.The specificity of ScFv in the culture medium was evaluated by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay(ELISA).The molecular weight of expressed HCV-E2-ScFv is 28kD by SDS-polyacrymide gel electrophoresis(PAGE).The expressed HCV-E2-ScFv will be useful in the immunohistochemical study of liver tissue and gene therapy against HCV infectiion.

2001, 16(3): 229

A putative -cathespin(cath)gene was identified from the single(S) nucleocapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus of Helicoverpa armigera(HaSNPY).This open reading frame is 1098 nucleotides long,encoding a putative protein of 366 amino acids.The amino acids sequence alignment of eleven baculoviral v-CATHs showed that the primary structure and the catalytic sited of the proteins were conserved.A pholygenetic tree of these v-CATHs was constructed by using maximun parsimony analysis,the result indicated that the -cath gene of HaSNPV had a different evolutionary history from that of other NPVs.

WU Jia-cai, ZHANG Chuan-xi

2001, 16(3): 242

The Hind Ⅲ-H?J fragments of Helicoverpa armigera single nucleocapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus (HaSNPV) qenome were cloned. By sequencing the terminus of the cloned fragments, an ORF encoding the HaSNPV p40 was identified. The coding region was 966 bp long and potential to encode a 36.6kD pepetide. The HaSNPV p40 exhibits 98% identity with HzSNPV p40 at the nucleotide sequence. The two genes diverged significantly from BmNPV p40 and AcMNPV gp41.The predicted amino acid sequences have less than 45% homology between HaSNPV p40?HzSNPV p40 and BmNPV p40 or AcMNPV gp41, but four genes have a conserved hydrophilic domain. In this region they have 62% homology. Further more, we determined that Hind Ⅲ-H fragment links with J fragment in the genome and the two fragments were analasysed with four restriction endonucleases (BamH Ⅰ?EcoR Ⅰ?Hind Ⅲ?Pst Ⅰ) .

ZHAJNG Heng, LEI Juan-l-i-, CHEN Jian, LU Yong-ping, CHEN Sheng-xiang, XUE Qirrg-zhong

2001, 16(3): 246

Two isolates of plant reoviruses causing severe stunting and dark leaf symptoms on wheat and maize from Hebei province and on rice from Zhejiang province have been characterized.The virus particles of both isolates were about 60~80nm in diameter and closely related serologically.Their dsRNA electrophoretic profiles in agarose gel were similar.They were both transmitted efficiently by the planthopper Laodelphax striatellus to maize and rice from their original hosts but maize was not a very suitable host for the vector and was a poor source of virus.Two fragments corresponding to dsRNA parts of rice black-streaked dwarf virus(RBSDV)S7 and S8 were amplified by RT-PCR from both isolates and sequenced.There were 97.0~98.9% identical nucleotides between the two Chinese isolates,which appear to be RBSDV(92.2%~95.5% identical nucleotides to Japanese isolate)rather than maize rough dwarf virus(79.6%~88.4% identical nucleotides to Italian isolate).

2001, 16(3): 252

The nucleotide sequence of RNA3 of a cucumber mosaic virus strain from banana of subgroup Ⅱ(CMV-Xb) was cloned and analyzed at nucleotide and protein level after RT-PCR amplificaion with two pairs of primers.The results showed that CMV-Xb is composed of 2205 nucleotides(nt) with two open reading frames.The one near 5'termini(97~936nt) encodes a 3a protein with 279 amino acids(aa),the other near 3'termini (1225~1871nt)codes for coat protein with 218aa,The 5'non-coding region(NR),intercistron region(IR) and 3'NR are 96nt,288nt and 324nt, respectively.Comparison at the nucleotide and putative amino acid level with other strains in subgroup Ⅱ showed that the nucleotide sequence of Xb is very conservative in the encoding regions as well as non-coding regions.The evolution of RNA3s of subgroup Ⅱ members of CMV is consecutive.

A part of the cloned fragment was excised from the recombinant with Bgl II and Sal I and subcloned into the expression vector pET-21d (+) to yield another recombinant named pET-21d-RAV-1 env (Bgl II/Sal I). The recombinant was sequenced and the result showed that the inserted fragment was identical to the counterpart in RAV-1 env gene both in nucleotide sequence and open reading frame. The E.coli BL2 (DE3) transformed with recombinant plasmid were induced with 1 mmol/L IPTG and the expression product found to be 20 kD in size on SDS-PAGE. The size of the expression product was the same as that theoretically calculated. In addition, the effects of start time and duration for IPTG induction on expression efficiency were analyzed and the result indicated that the start time for IPTG induction was more important to high expression efficiency than its duration.
