Transgenic plants are efficient means of producing and delivering oral vaccines. Rice material shown previously to express the Chlamydophila psittaci (Cp. psittaci) antigen (MOMP) fused to the B subunit of Escherichia coli heat-labile enterotoxin (LTB) was fed to mice and the resulting immune response was investigated. Oral immunization of mice with the(More)
A DNA fragment encoding the MOMP gene of Chlamydophila psittaci was fused to the heat-labile toxin B subunit gene (LTB-MOMP) and transferred into rice callus by Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation. The LTB-MOMP fusion gene was detected in genomic DNA from transformed rice leaves by Southern blot and RT-PCR amplification. Synthesis and assembly(More)
Seoul virus glycoprotein Gn is a major structural protein and candidate antigen of hantavirus that induces a highly immunogenic response for hantavirus vaccine. In this study, a replication-competent recombinant canine adenovirus type-2 expressing Gn was constructed by the in vitro ligation method. The Gn expression cassette, including the human(More)
The dehydration-responsive element binding proteins/C-repeat binding factors (i.e., DREBs/CRT) are crucial transcription factors, they can bind the cis-elements containing the A/GCCGAC sequence in the promoter region. Overexpression of DREB genes enhances the resistance to multiple abiotic stresses, but also causes dwarfism and delayed flowering in many(More)
