Abstract ( 1525 )
The HA gene of a highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (HPAIV) isolate (A/goose/Guangdong/l/96(H5Nl) was cloned and sequenced, then subcloned into the downstream of the baculovirus transfer vector pMelBacA. HA test and Western blot analysis demonstrated stable expression of the HA proteins. The oil-emulsion avian influenza subunit vaccine was prepared using expressed rH5HA (recombination H5HA protein) by allantoic fluid. SPF Balb/c mice were immunized three times with prepared subunit vaccine (contain 2.0 microg rH5HA per mice). Immunized mice generated a more consistent specific HI antibody response with an average geometric mean titer of 160 at 21 days of third post-vaccination. When challenged with highly pathogenic strains of the corresponding AI subtypes, the vaccinated mice were completely protected against lethal infection while all the negative control mice died, and no shedding at 5 days post infection. Vaccine protocols employing these recombinant HA proteins will not elicit an immune response against internal AI proteins and thus will not interfere with epidemiological surveys of natural influenza infections in the field. The results provide a system for the production of an effective recombinant influenza subunit vaccine that can easily be scaled up, and also establishes the baseline for developing people's avian influenza subunit vaccine.

Abstract ( 1385 )
Avian Influenza virus (AIV) is one of the most harmful pathogens in poultry industry. Because of its antigenic shift and drift, the efficacy of current vaccines and drugs therapy is limited. Here we show that four recombinant plasmids which can express four different kinds of short hairpin RNAs (shRNA) targeting at the polymerase II gene of the avian influenza virus in cell were successfully constructed. The recombinant plasmids and vacancy plasmid were transfected into MDCK cells respectively and five cell lines were established. The hemagglutinantion assay and real time RT-PCR were used to detect the inhibition efficacy. PB2-1154 , PB2-342 were proved that they can specifically inhibit the virus production in MDCK cells.

Abstract ( 1320 )
Nonstructural gene 1 (NS1) of H5N2 subtype avian influenza virus QS strain was amplified by RT-PCR, whoes nucleotide sequences is 678bp in length. The fragment was cloned into the pET-28(a) vector to construct a recombinant expression plasmid. The recombi-nant expression plasmid was induced by lmmol/L IPTG for 5 hours and analyzed by 15% SDS-PAGE. The result showed that NS1 protein was highly expressed by inclusion body. Its molecular weight was 28KD as expected. The expressed NS, protein was denatured by SKL, then the denatured protein refolded by slow diluting and dialyzing method. The result indicated that the high pure and active protein was obtained. Based on the purified recombinant protein, an indirect ELISA assay for detection of anti-NSl protein antibody was developed. The best concentration of coating antigen was 2.5 g/mL, and the best dilution of serum and HRP labeled goat anti-chicken was 1:200 and 1:5000 respectively. The positive serum of ND, IB, IBD and EDS76 were all ne...更多gative to NS 1 protein by ELISA assay . The sera of virus-infected chicken and vaccinated chicken were detected. The average OD490 value of the former were 0.592, 0.623 and 0.619, positive. The average OD490 value of the latter were 0.225, 0.210 and 0.205, negative; The result demonstrated that the NS1-ELISA assay can differentiate infected from vaccinated poultry on the basis of antibody to NS 1 protein. So the approach not only afforded a kind of quick, sensitive, specific differentiating diagnostic approach, making a solid foundation of special diagnosis kit, but also can provide an effective method for early diagnosis, real-time detection, controlling and clearing of AIV.

Abstract ( 579 )
Three methods including the classical virus isolation and identification, reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and indirect fluorescence assay (IFA) were used to detect avian influenza virus (AIV) in the sample and were compared. A virus was isolated by egg allantoic cavity inoculation and identified as H5 subtype of AIV with a monoclonal antibody (McAb) against H5 subtype via the hemoagglutination (HA) and hemoagglutination inhibit (HI) test. RT-PCR was performed to detect the sample directly and a 229bp-band of AIV specific and a 380bp-band of H5 subtype specific were both amplified with the designed primers. The tissue suspension was infected onto the monolayer of Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells and a H5-McAb was applied to run the IFA on the monolayer cells at 24 hours post-infection. The fluorescence in both nucleolus and cytoplasm were observed. The results of the study demonstrated that these three methods could be applied to detect the AIV in the samp...更多le, while RT-PCR and IFA could identify the subtype of AIV at the same time, and have the advantages over the classical method in the aspects of sensitivity, rapidity and simplicity.

Abstract ( 614 )
We define the digitalization of matter as one, in which substances change digitally in some respects of themselves or from one kind to another, and the integrated digitalization of matter-energy-information as that, in which the three, as constituents of a unified body, arc coordinately and digitally transported respectively and transformed mutually. "Digitally" means in a controllable pulse manner, which is rhythmic in time and standardized in the value of a quantity. The contents and applications of the micro transform of matter are staled in geometrical, physical, chemical and biological fields. The mutual complementation of the electric effects and the fluidic, chemical and biological effects in the two kinds of digitalization mentioned above is expounded. It is emphasized that the mass scale application of microsystems and nano ones should be supervised by a proper fundamental mechanics theory. We think that a system, when its representative dimensions reduce, will experience thre...更多e levels, and suggest that the first and third levels, in which Newtonian mechanics and quantum mechanics, respectively, take a supervisory part, should enjoy priority in mass scale application consideration.
