The encoding sequence for duck IL-18 was obtained, using reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction, from mRNA harvested from Con A-stimulated Gushi (GS) duck splenic mononuclear cells. Recombinant duck IL-18 (rduIL-18) was produced in a prokaryotic expression system. In vitro bioactivity of rduIL-18 was determined in a lymphocyte proliferation assay(More)
A partial Musca domestica genomic library was constructed. It was consisted of 1.2 x 10(5) recombinants with insert length ranging from 10 kb to 23 kb(15 kb average). High molecular weight genomic DNA with more than 50 kb size was extracted from the larva hatched 36 h and digested with unfrequently cutting restriction enzyme Bcl I. DNA fragments of 10(More)
A DNA vaccine against infectious laryngotracheitis virus (ILTV) can induce specific humoral and cell-mediated immunity. However, compared to conventional vaccines, DNA vaccines usually induce poor antibody responses. To determine if co-expression of a cytokine can result in a more potent ILTV DNA vaccine, immunogenicity and protective efficacy of a(More)
For constructing pcDNA-ORF5, pcDNA-ORF5-ORF6, pcDNA-ORF5/6, the ORF5 and ORF6 of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) were amplified by RT-PCR, and transiently transfected into 293T cells by calciumphosphate co-precipitation. After 48 h, 293T cells were collected and surveyed by flow cytometry examination. The result indicated that(More)
