The VP6, the group antigenic rotavirus (RV), is highly conserved and the most abundant, constituting about 39% of the viral structure proteins by weight. The high degree of identity (>87%-99%) in the primary amino acid sequences suggests VP6-based vaccines could potentially provide heterotypic protection. Although some efforts have been made toward(More)
A G2P[4]/NSP4[A] rotavirus strain TB-Chen was isolated from a 2-year-old patient hospitalized with acute gastroenteritis in Kunming, China. The strain TB-Chen was demonstrated having group A-specific antigenicity, a "short" (subgroup II) electropherotype. To investigate its overall genomic relatedness and to determine which group it belonged, the complete(More)
It has been demonstrated that the immunodominant region of the HCV core protein and the hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) have high degree of reactivity. In order to construct a chimeric protein that carries HCV and HBV epitopes and possesses immunogenicity to both HCV and HBV, four epitopes derived from residues aa2-21 (epitope C1), aa22-40 (epitope C2)(More)
Recombinant galectins of male and female Haemonchus contortus (rHco-gal-m/f) have been recognized as significant regulators of the functions of goat peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC). In previous research, transmembrane protein 63A (TMEM63A) was identified as a partner protein in the regulation associated with H. contortus infection. However, in the(More)
In our previous proteomics study, we identified Miro domain-containing protein (Miro-1), an excretory and secretory product of the pole worm, Haemonchus contortus, binds to goat peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) in vivo. However, our understanding of the role of Miro-1and its potential immune impact on goat PBMCs is limited. The aim of the present(More)
Modulation and suppression of the host immune response by nematode parasites have been reported extensively and the cysteine protease inhibitor (cystatin) is identified as one of the major immunomodulator. In the present study, we cloned and produced recombinant cystatin protein from nematode parasite Haemonchus contortus (rHCcyst-2) and investigated its(More)
VP7 of group A rotavirus (RVA) contains major neutralizing epitopes. Using the antigenic protein VP6 as the vector, chimeric proteins carrying foreign epitopes have been shown to possess good immunoreactivity and immunogenicity. In the present study, using modified VP6 as the vector, three chimeric proteins carrying epitopes derived from VP7 of RVA were(More)
