The effect of Potato virus Y NTN (PVY) infection upon photosynthesis was analysed in transgenic Pssu-ipt tobacco overproducing endogenous cytokinins in comparison with control, nontransgenic Nicotiana tabacum plants. The course of the infection from the early to the late stage was monitored by measuring of photosynthetic gas exchange and fast chlorophyll(More)
The optimized expression of recombinant Potato virus A coat protein (ACP) carrying two different epitopes from Human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV16) was developed. Epitope derived from minor capsid protein L2 was expressed as N-terminal fusion with ACP while an epitope derived from E7 oncoprotein was fused to its C-terminus. The construct was cloned into(More)
The E7 oncoprotein from Human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV16) is an attractive candidate for anti-cancer therapeutical vaccine development. In this study, we engineered different fusions of mutagenized coding sequence of E7 oncoprotein (E7ggg) with coat protein of Potato virus X (PVX CP) both on 5'- and 3'-terminus of PVX CP and evaluated the influence of(More)
We studied the effect of biotic stress caused by Potato virus Y NTN (PVY) on photosynthesis in transgenic Pssu-ipt tobacco overproducing endogenous cytokinins (CK) in comparison with control (non-transformed) plants. Both control and transgenic tobacco were grown as rooted or grafted plants. Content of viral protein increased significantly in control(More)
Potato virus A (PVA) was purified from mechanically infected plants Nicotiana tabacum cv Samsun by high speed centrifugation and subsequent isopycnic density gradient centrifugation in CsCl gradient. From different procedures tested 0.05 mol/l phosphate buffer (PBS) pH 8 seemed optimal for virus purification and 0.1 mol/l borate buffer pH 8.0 for virus(More)
Vaccine strategies for the treatment of human papillomavirus-induced cervical cancer are based mainly on the human papillomavirus 16 E7 (HPV16 E7) oncoprotein. The immunogenicity of the E7 gene has been enhanced by its fusion to many different genes. Here, we linked a short sequence coding for the E7 peptide (aa 44-60) containing immunodominant epitopes for(More)
The entire nucleotide sequence for the coding regions of a Danish PMTV isolate 54-15 was determined and compared to other known and sequenced isolates of PMTV. Many nucleotide and amino acid changes were found in parts of RNA coding for the triple gene block (TGB) proteins and in the part of the RNA coding for the read-through region of the coat protein(More)
Sequences of the first 300 nucleotides of coat protein (CP) genes of 7 isolates of NTN strain of potato virus Y (PVY, PVY(NTN)) were determined and compared with analogous published sequences of various isolates and strains of PVY. The sequence identity among the sequenced isolates ranged from 96 to 100%. The differences were found at different positions.(More)
Coat protein (CP) coding regions of six Potato mop-top virus (PMTV) isolates from the Czech Republic and Denmark (54-10, 54-11, 54-15, 54-19, Korneta and Pacov) were sequenced. Comparison of the obtained nucleotide sequences as well as alignment of the deduced amino acid sequences were performed. The obtained results showed that the isolates from different(More)
