    Notes: Summary.  For the potential use as recombinant vaccine, canine parvovirus (CPV) major capsid protein VP2 was expressed using Bombyx mori nucleopolyhedrovirus (BmNPV) vector. CPV VP2 gene was introduced into polyhedrin-based BmNPV transfer vector pBmKSK3, and recombinant virus BmK1-Parvo was prepared. When anti-CPV.VP2 monoclonal antibody was employed in immunofluorescence staining, an intense signal was observed within BmK1-Parvo-infected Bm5 cells but not within uninfected cells or cells infected with a wild-type BmNPV-K1. In hemagglutination assay, the expression level of VP2 were 3.2 × 103 HA units/ml from infected Bm5 cells, 2.1× 105 HA units/larvae from infected larval fat body, and 1.6× 106 HA units/ml from infected larval hemolymph. These results suggested that BmNPV vector system using B. mori larva as host could be applied to efficient mass-production of recombinant vaccines.

    Notes: Summary.  Bombyx mori nucleopolyhedroviruses (BmNPVs), isolated from a sericultural Korean farm, were purified and characterized by their DNA restriction pattern, virus replication, polyhedra production and gene structures. The EcoR I and Sal I fragments showed similar overall patterns with minor difference but distinguishable patterns in each isolate. There was no significant difference in the virus replication pattern, yield of total polyhedra production and polyhedra morphology, but the yield of released polyhedra by BmNPV-K1 in Bm5 cells was 2 to 5 times higher than that of other isolates. In comparative studies of p10 gene, BmNPV-K1 and K3 had same structure and they encoded a protein consisting of 94 amino acids. Although BmNPV-K2 encoded the same length of amino acids with BmNPV-K1 and K3, it had different structure, and BmNPV-K4 had the p10 gene encoding 70 amino acids.

    Notes: Background With β-agonists being the most widely used agents in the treatment of asthma, in vitro studies reported that β2-adrenergic receptor (ADRB2) polymorphisms are associated with agonist-promoted down-regulation.Objective The present population-based study aimed to evaluate the association between bronchodilating response to inhaled short-acting β-agonist and two non-synonymous single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of ADRB2 (ADRB2-16 and ADRB2-27).Methods Two hundred and nine children with reduction in forced expiratory volume in 1 s of more than 20% on methacholine bronchial challenge underwent bronchodilating response testing 5 min after the inhalation of 200 μg of albuterol. Of these 209, 195 gave peripheral blood for genotyping of ADRB2 polymorphisms.Results The bronchodilating response was significantly higher in subjects with the homozygous Arg16 than in those with the homozygous Gly16. It was further demonstrated that haplotype pairs of the homozygous Arg16Gln27 and of the heterozygous Arg16Gln27/Gly16Glu27 showed the highest bronchodilating responses, and the haplotype pairs of the homozygous Gly16Gln27 the lowest response. As a whole, the bronchodilating response was more positively associated with the combined quantity of Arg16 and Glu27 polymorphisms than with that of Arg16 alone.Conclusion Non-synonymous SNPs of ADRB2 at codons 16 and 27 is significantly associated with bronchodilating response to inhaled short acting β-agonists.
