Diphtheria toxin's B subunit provides toxin interaction with its receptor on the cell surface and translocation of toxin's A subunit from endosome to cytozole of sensitive cells. Functional analogues of B subunit with fluorescent label are considered as perspective tools for studying the above mentioned processes. The aim of the work was to obtain(More)
The aim of this work was to obtain the panel of recombinant single-chain Fv-antibodies against diphtheria toxin B subunit, the main diagnostic and pathogenic antigen of Corynebacterium diphtheriae. For this purpose we have constructed the immune library of murine immunoglobulin genes. A number of scFv specific to diphtheria toxin B subunit were acquired(More)
Numerous near-infrared (NIR) fluorescent proteins (FPs) were recently engineered from bacterial photoreceptors but lack of their systematic comparison makes researcher's choice rather difficult. Here we evaluated side-by-side several modern NIR FPs, such as blue-shifted smURFP and miRFP670, and red-shifted mIFP and miRFP703. We found that among all NIR FPs,(More)
The B subunit of diphtheria toxin (DT) is responsible for interaction with receptor on the cell surface and translocation of the catalytically active A subunit across endosomal membrane into the cell cytosole. Receptor for DT and its B subunit is membrane-anchored precursor of heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor (pro-HB-EGF), which(More)
Development of complications during diphtheria depends to a large extent on toxin-neutralizing antibodies level in the patient's blood. Active immunization of people with diphtheria anatoxin is widely used for diphtheria prevention and passive immunization with hyperimmune antitoxic horse serum is used for diphtheria treatment. A traditional component of(More)
The aim of this work was to obtain the recombinant single chain variable fragments of antibodies (scFv) against human protein C, the key component of blood anticoagulation system. For this purpose a peptide that mimics a Pro144-Leu155 sequence of protein C was synthesized and the murine immune scFv library against this peptide was constructed. The protein C(More)
