The production of Japanese encephalitis (JE) virus-like particles (VLPs) in stably transformed lepidopteran insect cells was investigated. The DNA fragment encoding the JE virus (JEV) prM signal peptide, the precursor (prM) of the viral membrane protein (M), and the envelope glycoprotein (E) was cloned into the plasmid vector pIHAbla. The pIHAbla contained(More)
Virus-like particles (VLPs) can be produced in recombinant protein production systems by expressing viral surface proteins that spontaneously assemble into particulate structures similar to authentic viral or subviral particles. VLPs serve as excellent platforms for the development of safe and effective vaccines and diagnostic antigens. Among various(More)
