Modified virus Ankara (MVA) is a vaccinia virus (VV) strain that was attenuated by serial passage through chick embryo fibroblasts (CEFs) and contains six large genomic deletions compared with parental virus. MVA replicates well in CEFs, but poorly in most mammalian cells. Recombinant MVA is a promising human vaccine candidate due to its restricted host(More)
In the present work we demonstrate the efficient display of functional scFv antibodies on the bacteriophage lambda capsid. A single-chain (scFv) anti-CEA antibody gene was cloned in two different vectors to obtain fusion of the scFv antibody to the N- or C-terminus of the bacteriophage lambda capsid protein D (gpD). Lambda bacteriophage assembly occurs in(More)
