The effect of infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) infection on cellular protein expression is essential for viral pathogenesis. To characterize the cellular response to IBDV infection, the differential proteomes of chicken embryo fibroblasts, with and without IBDV infection, were analyzed at different time points with two-dimensional gel electrophoresis(More)
Alpha-synuclein has been implicated in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease. To investigate the role of alpha-synuclein in the brain, the cDNA clone encoding the mouse cognate of the human alpha-synuclein was isolated from a mouse brain cDNA library. The open reading frame coded for 140 amino acids that share 95% identity with human alpha-synuclein.(More)
VP1, the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase of infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV), has been suggested to play an essential role in the replication and translation of viral RNAs. In this study, we first expressed the complete VP1 protein gene in Escherichia coli (E. coli), and then the produced polyclonal antibody and four monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) to(More)
Infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) causes immunosuppression in chickens. We investigated the molecular changes in chicken embryo fibroblasts (CEF) adapted IBDV by genomic sequencing. IBDV were serially passaged in CEF and chickens were infected with the IBDV obtained after different numbers of passages in CEF. Chicken infections showed that 16th, 20th,(More)
The rat phenylethanolamine N-methyltransferase (PNMT) gene was isolated from a genomic library by cross-hybridization with a bovine PNMT cDNA probe. Complete nucleotide sequence analysis of a genomic clone showed that this gene contained three exons and spanned about 2.8 kb in length. There were the acute-phase response element, TATA, SP1, and GRE(More)
The VP5 protein of infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) was shown in previous reports to be involved in the cytopathogenicity of IBDV. Here, using a rescued VP5-deficient IBDV infectious clone, it was demonstrated that a lack of VP5 expression significantly hinders the release of viral progeny from infected cells but does not block intracellular virus(More)
Both of hepatitis B virus core protein and a precore protein derivative, named P22, have been shown to localize in the nucleus. Although P22 has ten additional amino acid residues at its amino-terminus, both proteins contain the same nuclear localization signal. In order to understand the mechanism that regulates the activity of this signal, we have studied(More)
BACKGROUND CD20 positive NK/T-cell lymphoma is extremely rare and difficult for clinical treatment. Due to the lack of an established cell model for this disease, less is known about its biological characterization and potential therapeutic options. METHODS A cell line of NK/T-cell lymphoma, which was enriched by magnetic sorting with proper cell surface(More)
