ABSTRACT

Objective To compare the characteristics of hMPV infection in BALB/c and SCID mice.Methods BALB/c and SCID mice were infected intranasally with GFP-rhMPV,and sacrificed on day 3,5,7,9 and 14 post inoculation.Heart,liver,spleen,lungs,kidneys and brain of the animals were used for viral isolation,titration,pulmonary histopathology and detection of GFP-hMPV mRNA expression by RT-PCR and real-time PCR.Results Live viruses were successfully isolated from the lungs of infected mice.Viral titers peaked on the 5th day post inoculation.Viruses remained to be detectable on the 14th day post inoculation in SCID mice,but not in BALB/c mice,whereas genomic RNA of GFP-rhMPV was detectable by PCR targeting F gene in infected BALB/c mice.Live viruses were not able to be isolated from heart,liver,spleen,kidney and brain,neither was genomic RNA of hMPV able to be detected on the 5 th day post inoculation by RT-PCR and real-time PCR.Histopathology of lungs was characterized by interstitial pneumonia on 5 days post inoculation.Lung pathology score of BALB/c mice group was slightly lower than SCID,and the difference was not statistically significant.Conclusion GFP-rhMPV can only replicate in the immunocompetent and immunodeficient mouse lungs,but not in other organs.As compared to that in BALB/c mice,the viral replication appears to be more efficiently and for longer time in SCID mouse lungs probably due to the absence of host cellular and humaral immunity,but this does not necessarily result in more severe pathological lesion.

ABSTRACT

Objective To establish the plaque assay for the titration of GFP-labeled recombinant human metapneumovims(rhMPV). Methods Vero-E6 cells were selected as host cells for titration. GFP-labeled hMPV was serially diluted and added to each well to infect the cells. The plates were covered with low melting agarose overlay and incubated for different days in incubator. The plates were then observed under fluorescence microscope for plaques with green flourecence, at the same time, the number of plaques was counted by blue plaque-forming. Results Under the low melting agarose overlay, Vero-E6 cells grew well until the CPE caused by hMPV was seen. Clear green flourescence could be observed the first day post infection, much clearer on the third day post infection but showed somewhat fusion between plaques later on.Blue plaques on the fifth day after infection were large and easy to observe. The recombinant GFP-labeled hMPV could replicate up to 1 × 106 PFU in the Vero-E6 cells. Conclusion Plaque assay for titration of recombinant GFP-rhMPV has been sucessfully established. This methodology will offer a solid base for further studies on pathogenesis and vaccine development of this virus.

ABSTRACT

Nitric oxide (NO) is an important signaling molecule with diverse physiological functions in both animal and plant cells. In this work, we isolated the full-length cDNA and genomic DNA sequences of TaNOA-B1 encoding a putative NO associated (NOA) factor in common wheat. Bioinformatic analysis showed that TaNOA-B1 possessed a similar intron/exon structure as its orthologous genes in Arabidopsis and rice. The amino acid sequence deduced from TaNOA-B1 was more than 60% identitical to those of Arabidopsis and rice NOA1 proteins. The primary structure of TaNOA-B1 contained the zinc finger and P-loop GTPase motifs conserved in Arabidopsis and rice NOA1 proteins. There existed at least three NOA gene members in common wheat, which were mapped to homoeologous group six chromosomes 6A, 6B and 6D, respectively. TaNOA-B1 investigated in this work was located on chromosome 6B. The transcripts of TaNOA members were found mainly in leaves. TaNOA-B1-GFP fusion protein may be located in mitochondria. TaNOA transcript level was up-regulated by abscisic acid (ABA) or NaC1 treatments, indicating that TaNOA might be involved in wheat responses to abiotic stresses.

ABSTRACT

Dehydroascorbate reductase (DHAR) plays an important role in the recycling of ascorbic acid. In this work, we isolated the full length cDNA clones of two different DHAR genes (tentatively named as TaDHAR1 and TaDHAR2, respectively) from common wheat. Semi-quantitative PCR experiments showed that TaDHAR1 and TaDHAR2 were transcribed in many vegetative and reproductive organs examined in this work. Transient expression analysis using wheat protoplasts indicated that the protein products of TaDHAR1 and TaDHAR2 may be located in the cytoplasm. The cDNAs of TaDHAR1 and TaDHAR2 were expressed in the bacterial cells, and resultant histidine tagged recombinant proteins could be efficiently purified using nickel chelate affinity chromatography. In vitro enzyme activity assays revealed that the recombinant TaDHAR1 and TaDHAR2 proteins could all convert dehydroascorbate (DHA) to AsA. The two proteins exhibited higher activity levels at 37 degrees C than at 25 degrees C. Under the two temperature conditions, the optimal pH for TaDHAR1 and TaDHAR2 was both around 7.5. The major difference between TaDHAR1 and TaDHAR2 is the activity under pH 6.0 and 7.0 at 25 degrees C. The results and resources obtained in this study may be useful for further research into the physiological role of TaDHAR genes in AsA metabolism in crop plants under normal or stressed conditions.
