ABSTRACT
Establishment of recombinant porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) with co-expression E2 Epitope of Classical Swine Fever virus (CSFV) is a crucial step to develop a genetic engineered vaccine against PRRSV and CSFV. Reverse genetic manipulation could be adopted as a com monly used technique. In this study, we focus on using nonessential regions of NSP2 (aa480-532 and aa508-532) as viral vector to express E2 Epitope of CSFV. A neutralizing epitope of classical swine fever virus (CSFV) E2 protein was inserted into the two nonessential region of nsp2 by the method of mutant PCR, basing on the infectious clone of HuN4-F112 vaccine strain. The co-expressed full-length cDNA clones (psk-HuN4-F112-delta508-532 + E2 and psk-HuN4-F112-delta480-532 + E2) were assembled by cloning and splice of the gene fragments. The completely assembled full-length cDNA clones were confirmed by sequence and Swa I enzyme digestion. Capped RNAs were transcribed in vitro from a full-length cDNA clone of the viral genome and transfected into BHK-21 cells by liposome to acquire the rescued virus. The rescued recombinant viruses were passaged on MARC-145 cells. The successfully rescued viruses were tested by RT-PCR, digestion, and genome sequence. The results showed that these rescued viruses could be distinguished from the parental virus (HuN4-F112) with the mutant genetic marker (Mlu I enzyme site of virual genome at 14 667nt was created by synonymous mutation) and the inserted nsp2 gene region. The results of IFA showed that the inserted E2 epitope could be expressed by the recombinant viruses and the E2 epitope gene was stable during the viral serial passage. The results of plaque assay and viral growth curve showed that the recovery viruses possessed similar characterses of viral growth to those of the parental virus. In summary, the full-length infectious cDNA clones containing the marker gene were constructed and the marker recombinant viruses were rescued. The results suggested that these stable infectious clones could be used as an important tool for development of novel vaccine against PRRSV.
