Chlamydia trachomatis is the leading cause of sexually transmitted infections worldwide. There is currently no commercially available vaccine against C. trachomatis. Major outer membrane protein (MOMP) of C. trachomatis is considered to be an ideal candidate for prophylactic vaccine. We designed a MOMP multi-epitope containing T- and B-cell epitope-rich(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) major capsid protein L1 is an important vehicle for the delivery of epitopes. To investigate the expression and immunogenicity of hybridized HPV6b L1 containing multiepitope of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) latency membrane protein 2 (LMP2), a recombinant plasmid pcDNA3.1(+) containing mammalian codon-optimization HPV6b L1 gene and EBV(More)
Chlamydia trachomatis (Ct) is the leading cause of sexually transmitted diseases worldwide. There is no safe and effective vaccine to control the spread of Ct. In development of Ct vaccine, selection of appropriate candidate antigens and an effective delivery system may be the main challenges. Multi-epitope of major outer membrane protein (MOMPm) is the(More)
Schistosoma japonicum is a parasitic flatworm that causes human schistosomiasis. Secreted extracellular vesicles (EVs) play a key role in pathogen-host interfaces. Previous studies have shown that S. japonicum adult worms can release microRNA (miRNA)-containing EVs, which can transfer their cargo to mammalian cells and regulate gene expression in recipient(More)
Effective adjuvants are needed to design effective vaccines against Chlamydia trachomatis (Ct). The aim of this study was to observe the immune response stimulated by inoculation of a DNA vaccine encoding a fusion protein comprising multiple Ct major outer membrane protein (MOMP) epitopes and human papillomavirus 6b L1 (HPV 6b L1) as the basis for designing(More)
Cervical cancer caused by infection with high-risk human papillomavirus remains to be the most deadly gynecologic malignancy worldwide. It is well documented that persistent expression of two oncogenes (E6/E7) plays the key roles in cervical cancer. Thus, in vivo detection of the oncoproteins is very important for the diagnosis of the cancer. Recently,(More)
The purpose of this study was to screen and identify the linear B-cell epitopes of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) latent membrane protein 2 (LMP2). The secondary structure and surface properties of EBV LMP2A protein were analyzed. In combination with hydrophilicity, accessibility, flexibility, and antigenicity analysis, and average antigenicity index (AI) of(More)
This study examines the impact of entrepreneurs' network structure and knowledge homogeneity/heterogeneity of their network members on product development, and revenue growth of software ventures in China and Russia. The empirical data are composed of structured interviews with 159 software entrepreneurs in Beijing and Moscow. The study found that(More)
