Construction, purification and characterization of a recombinant baculovirus containing the gene for alpha subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin.

A cDNA encoding the alpha subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin, a placental glycoprotein hormone, was cloned downstream to the viral polyhedrin gene promoter of Autographa california nuclear polyhedrosis virus and the recombinant transfer vector was used to co-transfect Spodoptera frugiperda cells growing in culture. Recombinant baculovirus carrying the… CONTINUE READING
