    ABSTRACT: The human iron-binding protein lactoferrin (hLf) has been implicated in a number of important physiological pathways, including those regulating immune function and tumor growth. In an effort to develop an efficient system for production of recombinant hLf (rhLf) that is structurally and functionally equivalent to the natural protein, we generated a recombinant CELO (chicken embryo lethal orphan) avian adenovirus containing an expression cassette for hLf. Embryonated chicken eggs were infected with the generated CELO-Lf virus. rhLf expression was measured in the allantoic fluid of infected eggs by ELISA three days later. The level of recombinant protein was about 0.8mg per embryo. rhLf was efficiently purified (up to 85% yield) from the allantoic fluid of infected eggs using affinity chromatography. rhLf produced in the allantoic fluid was characterized in comparison with natural hLf (nhLf) purified from human breast milk. SDS-PAGE, Western blotting and glycosylation analyzes showed that the recombinant protein had similar physical characteristics to nhLf. In addition, we demonstrated that the antioxidative and antimicrobial activity of rhLf produced in this system is equivalent to that of nhLf. Taken together, these results illustrate the utility of the described "recombinant CELO adenovirus-chicken embryo" system for production of functionally active rhLf. Efficient production of rhLf with accurate structure and function is an important step in furthering investigation of Lf as a potential human drug.

    ABSTRACT: In our study, a recombinant adenovirus based on the avian adenovirus CELO genome, has been constructed that contains the human interleukin-2 gene. We have shown the production of biologically active recombinant interleukin-2 in vitro (LMH and 293 cells) and in ovo (chicken embryos) infected with recombinant virus CELO-IL2. An increase in the median survival time of C57BL/6 mice carrying B16 melanoma tumors has been demonstrated after multiple intra-tumors injections of the recombinant adenovirus CELO-IL2.

    ABSTRACT: A method was elaborated to evaluate the biological activity of expression products of gene in the plasmid vectors, which are crucial for the synthesis of growth factor of blood vessels. It was proven as possible that the chrioallantonic membrane (CAM) of chicken's embryos could be transfected by recombinant plasmids containing both the reporter and target genes. The efficiency of CAM transfection was assessed by a plasmid carrying the reporter gene of green fluorescent protein (GFP). Finally, it was demonstrated that, at an infiltration of the recombinant plasmid containing the human angiogenine gene, its expression products induce the neovascularization in the CAM cells of chicken's embryos and stimulate an accretion in vessels of the 1st, 2nd and 3d orders.

    ABSTRACT: Recombinant CELO avian adenoviruses carrying green fluorescent protein (GFP) and and human interleukin-2 (IL-2) genes were obtained by homologous recombination in cell culture. The resultant recombinant CELO viruses are reproduced in chick embryos in the renal tubular and chorionic allantoic membrane cells. The ability of CELO vectors to transduce human and animal cells was studied in vitro (in cell cultures) and in vivo (in laboratory animals). GFP gene delivery and expression in recombinant CELO virus in tumors in C57BL/6 mice were for the first time demonstrated for B16 melanoma. Human IL-2 gene expression and protein accumulation in allantoic fluid of chick embryos infected with CELO-IL-2 vector were detected for the first time.

    ABSTRACT: Transcription of E1b region of avian CELO and EDS adenoviruses was investigated in infection of primary chicken kidney cell culture with these viruses. Transcription of Gam-1 gene of CELO virus and predicted large T antigen of EDS virus was observed 4 and 24 h after cell infection.

    ABSTRACT: Transfection of HC-11 murine epithelial mammary cells as well as murine and sheep mammary glands were carried out using insulin-containing constructs that deliver DNA by receptor-mediated endocytosis to receptor-expressing cells. In vivo transfection of mammary gland tissue with the luciferase gene was carried out by introducing the DNA constructs into the mammary ducts of both mice and sheep. The successful transfection of ewe mammary glands was demonstrated by the detection of luciferase activity in mammary gland biopsy material up to a month after a single administration of the construct. To test whether products of expression of transfected genes could be secreted into the milk in this system, the N-terminal secretory signal sequences of bovine beta-lactoglobulin or the entire coding sequence of human alpha-lactalbumin were fused to the N terminus of the luciferase gene. After transfection with the modified luciferases, both murine and sheep milk could be shown to contain luciferase activity, whereas mice, which had been transfected with the nonmodified luciferase gene, did not secrete any activity in the milk. This approach demonstrates for the first time the possibility of gene transfer in vivo into mammary gland epithelial cells using constructs delivering DNA via receptor-mediated endocytosis.

    ABSTRACT: The patterns of RNA from cells infected with avian adenovirus chicken embryo lethal orphan (CELO) virus were analyzed by Northern hybridization method. Early RNAs are specifically hybridized with several fragments of the Eco-RI restriction map: A (49-81%), B (0.2-20.3%), D (81-92.5%), and E fragments of the Bam-HI CELO DNA restriction map. Early RNAs were not hybridized with C (37.8-49%), G (31-37.8%), and E (20.3-31%) fragments of the Eco-RI DNA CELO restriction map. At least 19 types of virus-specific RNA molecules homologous to 4 different regions of the virus genome are produced in CELO-infected permissive cells. Several classes of virus-specific RNAs were identified in CELO virus-transformed cell strains.

    ABSTRACT: A thiophilic adsorption method has been developed for rapid purification and separation of mouse F(ab)2 and Fc fragments obtained after proteolytic digestion of IgG1 monoclonal antibodies. Partially purified Mabs were digested with papain. Thiophilic chromatography was performed using stepwise elution with decreasing concentrations of ammonium sulphate. Most contaminating proteins did not react with the thiophilic adsorbent, and chromatography efficiently resolved the F(ab)2 and Fc fragments, as judged by electrophoresis. Fractions containing the F(ab)2 fragments retained about 90% of the total antibody activity loaded onto the column.

    ABSTRACT: The cores of egg-drop syndrome virus (EDS-76) were isolated by the pyridine technique. EDS-76 proved to be much more resistant to pyridine disruption than other adenoviruses and treatment with 10% pyridine did not lead to complete dissociation of capsid and cores; only increase of pyridine concentration to 20% produced satisfactory results. At least three polypeptides (24, 10.5, and 6.5 kDa) were found in the core by SDS-PAGE, whereas the 40 kDa reacting with the core is most probably not a core component. Much more intensive reactions of the core with EDS-76 virion capsid suggest that its virion structure differs from that of other adenoviruses.
