Two hybrid genes (BLG-HuIFN-gamma2 and BLG-HuIFN-gamma3) were constructed on the basis of sheep beta-lactoglobulin (BLG) and human interferon-gamma (HuIFN-gamma) gene sequences. They were used to direct HuIFN-gamma synthesis in the mammary gland of transgenic mice. HuIFN-gamma was efficiently produced in the mammary gland of transgenic mice.(More)
We studied the activities of ribosomal genes (nucleolus organizing regions) at successive stages of cultivation of the mouse R1 embryonic stem cells. The total number and number of active nucleolar organizers were estimated by means of in situ hybridization with mouse rDNA probes and argentophilic staining of nucleolus forming chromosomes regions from the(More)
During the past two decades, there have been numerous attempts at using animals in order to produce recombinant human proteins and monoclonal antibodies. However, it is only recently that the first two therapeutic agents isolated from the milk of transgenic animals, C1 inhibitor (Ruconest) and antithrombin (ATryn), appeared on the market. This inspires hope(More)
520 In this work, we propose a new method of obtaining hybrid cells in which DNA of one of fusion partners is replicatively inactivated. Today this is the only method of obtaining such cells. Hybrid cells with replicatively inactivated genetic material of one of fusion partners may be used to study the effect of nuclear-cytoplasmic factors of one cell on(More)
A biotechnological system for the production of human β-interferon was developed on the basis of a hybrid gene constructed from the coding sequence of the β interferon gene, inserted into the first exon of the sheep beta-lactoglobulin gene. It is intended for the expression of human β-interferon in mammary glands of transgenic animals. Two lines of(More)
Tissue renewal is a phenomenon based on replacement of vanishing cells by progeny of resident or circulated stem cells (SCs). The delivery of stem cells via circulation should result in stem-cell homing and differentiation into a wide variety of tissues and shows promise for therapy of tissue diseases. Here, we studied whether bone-marrow SC transplantation(More)
A regulatory element consisting of a MAR element sequence of Drosophila heat shock genes and enhancer from a long terminal repeat of the mouse mammary tumor virus is created for studying the possibility of increasing the expression level of hybrid genes in transgenic animals. Two lines of transgenic mice containing the described regulatory element and(More)
Cell hybrids obtained by fusing mouse PCC4aza1 teratocarcinoma cells and spleen cells induced to proliferation and treated with the demethylating agent 5-azacytidine prior to fusion are described. The obtained hybrids demonstrated no expression of T lymphocyte marker genes CD11 and CD45, which indicates possible somatic nucleus reprogramming by factors(More)
Expression in milk of transgenic farm animals is one of the most effective ways to produce eukaryotic recombinant proteins. In this review, we discuss the problems of the appropriateness of selecting this expression system for the production of proteins and the development characteristics of appropriate production processes.
In the present work, we studied the state of chromosomal nucleolar organizing regions (NOR) in hybrid cells obtained by fusion of cells of embryonal carcinoma of a murine line PCC4aza1 and of cells of adult mouse spleen at cultivation of hybrids under different conditions. The obtained results have shown that long-term cultivation of hybrid cells in a(More)
