Abstract:The E gene of dengue一2 virus was amplified using RT—PCR mothod from the C6/36 cells in— fected by D2V NGC strain and inserted into pPICZ a B vector.The recom binant plasm id was integret— ed into Pichia pastoris X一33 by electroporation and the expressed products were analyzed w ith SDSPAGE and W estern blotting.High level secreted expression was performed by determining the M ut phenotype and screening m ulti—copy integrants in the recombinant Pichia strains.The molecular m ass of recombinant E glycoprotein was approx. 69kD and secreted into supernatants when induced with methano1.The expression product was able tO reacted with D2V polyclone antibody and D2V E specif— ic M cAb.M CAC purified E—hisidine—tagged protein from the expressed product w ith HisTrap Kit can bind im m unologically tO H is antibody and D2V E specific M cAb in W estern—blot as ay. This study suggests the entire E gene coding D2V envelope glycoprotein can be expressed efficiently in Pichia pastoris and the expressed products of E fusion protein could amount to 0.1 g/L.

In order tO study the structure specificity of HPV 1 6 E 7 gene of cervical carcinoma in W uhan city and W ufeng county of Hubei the tissue DNA was abstracted from cervical carcinom a biopsies from W uhan and high incidence region of cervical carcinoma in W uhan county. HPV 16 E 7 gene was am pli— fied by PCR from the cervical carcinoma tissus DNA with the infection of HPV1 6.and then was cloned into pGEM —T vector.After sequencing the double strands,the gene was com pared with the prototype E 7 gene of HPV 16,HPV 16 Hubei strain and com pared with each other.Sequencing results showed one point mutation in the viral neocleotide sequence of high incidence region that the 229 th neocleotide “C’’was changed into “T”,which caused the Arg cordon TGT tO convert into a Cys cordon CGT . This may be the cause of high incidence of HPV infection and high oncogenisis.The results also show that there is only a synonymous mutation in the viral neocleotide sequence of W uhan which is different from the HPV 16 HB E 7 gene,suggesting that HPV 16 HB and the HPV16 prototype are CO—exist in Hubei, but the HPV 16 prototype are the m ain type.

For understanding the mechanism Of neurovirulence attenuation Of the Japanese encephalitis virus(JEV),nucleotides of the E coding region of five JE strains,one wild and four attenuated viruses, were am plified by PCR and sequenced.A comparison of the five sequences indicated that there were tO— tally twelve nucleotides and eight amino acid differences between the vaccine strain SA14—14—2(PHK一8) and its parent SA14,in which three amino acids(E一107,E一176,E一439)were different between SA14 and SA14-12—1—7,and other three amino acids(E一138,E一279,E一315)were different between SAx4-12— 1—7 and SA14-9—7 as well as SA14-5—3.The SA14-12—1—7 strain showed low neurovirulence but unstable, whereas al1 the other attenuated strains showed high stability of attenuation.Our results suggest that the mutations of E一176(I1e Va1),E一439(Lys Arg)and E一107(Leu-+Phe)may contribute for the attenuation of neuroinvasion and neurovirulence and the m utations of E一1 38,E一279,E一3 1 5 may con— tribute tO the attenuation of the neuroviru1ence and itS stability

2002, 17(3): 289

自Kerr等1972年提出细胞凋亡(apoptosis)概 念以来,这一生物学现象的研究已受到广泛重视,细 胞凋亡是细胞在一定的生理或病理条件下,遵循自 身程序进行自杀的过程。但它与程序化细胞死亡 (PCD)不是同一现象⋯1。程序化细胞死亡具有严格 的基因时控性,一定时间内使某些细胞死亡而让另 外一些细胞新生,其调控是非常精确的。细胞凋亡 虽也涉及基因调控,但它只是瞬时发生的形态学变 化过程,它以细胞皱缩。胞浆致密,染色质浓缩成大 小不等的块状,DNA 梯级性降解,细胞膜内陷形成 多个凋亡小体等生化和形态学变化为其特征。
