The baculovirus gene expression system is an efficient and safe protein expression system, since baculoviruses cannot replicate in mammalian cells. In order to improve the transduction efficiency and increase the reporter gene expression levels delivered by baculoviruses, we tested in the baculovirus expression cassette the Woodchuck hepatitis virus(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetes mellitus can cause a wide variety of vascular complications and it is one of the major risk factors for cardiovascular diseases (CVD). High glucose can induce vascular endothelial cell apoptosis. In this study, we investigated the effect of radix hedysari polysaccharide (HPS) on the depression of apoptosis of human umbilical vein(More)
Two novel actinomycetes, designated strains 2C-SSA16(2)T and 1C-GS8T, were isolated from the cuticle of Camponotus japonicus Mayr, collected from Northeast Agricultural University, Heilongjiang Province, north China. Both of them contained genes (involved in antibiotics biosynthesis) of the ketosynthase (KS) and methyl malonyl transferase domains (PKS-I)(More)
OBJECTIVE To improve the transduction efficiency of baculovirus and exogenous gene expression level, we chose a mammalian cell-specific promoter-human extension factor 1alpha promoter (EF1-alpha), used virus pseudotyped tools--truncated vessicular stomatitis virus protein G (VSV-GED), added woodchuck hepatitis virus post-transcriptional regulatory element(More)
Newcastle disease (ND) is a lethal avian infectious disease caused by Newcastle disease virus (NDV) which poses a substantial threat to China's poultry industry. Conventional live vaccines against NDV are available, but they can revert to virulent strains and do not protect against mutant strains of the virus. Therefore, there is a critical unmet need for a(More)
OBJECTIVE To construct the recombinant baculovirus with mammaliancell-specific promoter and woodchuck hepatitis virus post-transcriptional regulatory element (WPRE), to highly express Newcastle disease virus (NDV) F gene in the primary chicken embryo cells. METHOD We extracted total RNAs from NDV La Sota strain. Then the F gene was amplified by reverse(More)
Two Gram-stain-positive, aerobic actinomycete strains, designated NEAU-PCY-3T and NEAU-PCY-4, were isolated from rhizosphere soil of Urtica urens L. collected from Anshan, Liaoning Province, northeast PR China. The 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis showed that the two strains exhibited 99.9 % 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with each other and that they(More)
INTRODUCTION Life orientation among the nursing home elders would differ from those of community-dwelling elders due to the different living environment, but may have greater differences in gender. OBJECTIVES This study was designed to investigate the positive life orientation and explore the potential risk factors including gender disparities among(More)
OBJECTIVE Baculovirus is known as a safe vector candidate due to its non-replication in mammalian cells. The tropism to different cells and transduction efficiency can be improved by introducing cell-specific promoter, VSV-GED and different functional regulatory elements. The optimized pseudotyped recombinant baculovirus can express eGFP gene in primary(More)
