Many commercially available systems provide a variety of strategies for high-level expression of recombinant proteins. While the prokaryotic and yeast expression systems are highly efficient and easy to use, expression systems for use in higher eukaryotic cells are still hampered by difficulties such as inefficient posttranslational processing, insufficient(More)
Angiogenesis is a vital component of the development and progression of many human solid tumors. Glioblastoma multiforme is one of the most highly vascularised class of solid tumors. Thus, we have investigated the potential antitumourigenic activity of endostatin, an angiogenic inhibitor, in the rat C6 glioma model. We have engineered C6 cells that(More)
Paramyxovirus assembly at the cell membrane requires the movement of viral components to budding sites and envelopment of nucleocapsids by cellular membranes containing viral glycoproteins, facilitated by interactions with the matrix protein. The specific protein interactions during assembly of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) are unknown. Here, the(More)
The respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) G glycoprotein mediates attachment of RSV to cells via an unknown receptor. To study G glycoprotein function we have cloned two variants of the RSV G gene into a Semliki Forest virus (SFV) expression vector, a full length (rG) and soluble (srG) G glycoprotein variant. By immunofluorescence microscopy, rG was found to be(More)
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) causes severe lower respiratory tract infection in children and calves. Antibodies to ovine RSV (ORSV) are common in sheep, but the clinical disease is not well defined. There is no report of ORSV infection in Australian sheep although respiratory distress syndrome has been described. This discrepancy may be due to the lack(More)
