    ABSTRACT: Human endostatin is a novel antiangiogenic molecule, which can inhibit the proliferation and development of new blood vessels, and experimentally can cause nearly complete regression of established tumors. In this paper, the cDNA encoding human endostatin was cloned into a baculovirus shuttle vector pBacPAK8 and co-infected with linearized Bm-BacPAK6 DNA into and BmN cells. The recombinant virus was screened and identified by PCR, DNA and RNA dot hybridization, and ELISA assay. The recombinant endostatin was expressed in culture cells, and the larvae and pupa of silkworm by inoculation of recombinant virus. The biological activity assay showed that the expression product in larvae was over 150 microg/ml, about 50-fold higher than that expressed in cultured cells. SDS-PAGE and Western blotting analysis showed a pattern of molecular weight of about 20 kDa. The bio-activity of the protein product was determined by human umbilical vein endothelial cells (ECV304) proliferation test in vitro and the chick chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) vascular inhibition test. Endostatin showed significant inhibitory effect on endothelial cells in a dose-dependent manner. Silkworm-produced endostatin induced apoptosis of endothelial cells and also inhibited angiogenesis in the CAM assay. Combination regimen using angiostatin and endostatin showed more than additive effect in angiogenic inhibition and increasing apoptosis when compared with treatment with the individual antiangiogenic protein.

    ABSTRACT: A recombinant transfer vector pBacSCF was constructed by inserting huamn stem cell factor (hSCF) cDNA into plasmid pBacPAK8. BmN cells were co-transfected with modified Bombyx mori, nuclear polyhedrosis virus (BmBacPAK) DNA and the recmbinant transfer vector to construct a recombinant baculovirus containing hSCE gene. DNA dot blotting and RNA dot blotting demonstrated that the hSCE gene was contained in the recombinant virus and transcribed. The recombinant baculovirus was infectious to BmN cells and to silkworm. SDS-PAGE analysis showed a specific band of expressed product in the extract of infected cells and in the heamolymph of infected larvae. Bioactivity of the recombinant hSCE was determined with W-1 cell line and MTT colorimetric method in synergy with interlukin-3 (IL-3). These results revealed that the hSCF gene was over-expressed in cultured cells and lavae of silkworm.
