293 and RH cells derived from human embryo kidney were infected by Venezuelan equine encephalitis and tick-borne encephalitis viruses and cDNA libraries representing cellular mRNAs induced or suppressed due to the infection were prepared using suppressive subtractive hybridization. Among the up-regulated clones the RT-PCR and Northern analyses revealed an(More)
The mRNA of the precursor of laminin-binding protein (LBP) was isolated from a human embryo kidney cell line and cloned. The determined sequence of the LBP gene showed complete identity with the LBP genes isolated from human lung and large intestine cells. The human LBP was expressed by E. coli cells, and it was purified using Ni-NTA-Sepharose(More)
Recombinant polypeptide containing the 260-466 amino acid sequence of West Nile virus (WNV) strain LEIV-Vlg99-27889-human glycoprotein E (gpE, E(260-466)) was constructed. Immunochemical similarity between the E(260-466) and gpE of WNV was proven by enzyme immunoassay (EIA), immunoblot, competitive EIA, hemagglutination inhibition, and neutralization tests(More)
The full-length gene for Marburg virus (MV) nucleoprotein (NP) was cloned in prokaryotic pQE32 under the control of the T5 promoter and in eukaryotic pTM1 under the control of the promoter for T7 RNA polymerase. Recombinant NP was synthesized in Escherichia coli and in human kidney cell line 293 cotransfected with recombinant vaccinia virus vTF7-3(More)
It was demonstrated by subtractive hybridization that the infection of a human embryonic kidney cell line with tick-borne encephalitis virus causes an approximately tenfold transcription activation of the RIG-1 gene, which encodes a protein of the DExH/D-box-containing RNA helicase family. A possible involvement of the protein in antiviral cell systems is(More)
We have developed a panel of 16 hybridomas secreting neutralizing monoclonal antibodies (Nt- MAbs) to Russian isolate (LEIV-Vlg99-27889-human) of the West Nile virus (WNV). Most of the Nt-Mabs were either IgG1 or IgG3 subtypes. Nine of the 16 neutralizing MAbs detected WNV protein E in Western blot. According to their Nt-activities, Western blot results and(More)
Two novel databases, GenSensor and ConSensor, have been developed. GenSensor accumulates information on the sensitivities of the prokaryotic genes to external stimuli and may facilitate designing of novel genosensors; ConSensor contains data about the structure and efficiency of the available genosensor plasmid constructs. Using these databases, candidate(More)
