17D yellow fever vaccine virus envelope protein expressed by recombinant baculovirus is antigenically indistinguishable from authentic viral protein

, : 17D yellow fever vaccine virus envelope protein expressed by recombinant baculovirus is antigenically indistinguishable from authentic viral protein. Journal of General Virology 72: 1451-1454

We have constructed a recombinant baculovirus containing cloned DNA encoding the membrane and envelope (E) proteins of 17D yellow fever vaccine virus. Spodoptera frugiperda cells infected with this recombinant baculovirus produced a 66K protein which corresponded to the estimated size of the protein encoded by the cloned inserted DNA, and a 54K protein with the same molecular size as that of the authentic 17D yellow fever virus E protein. This recombinant 54K protein was labile, producing E protein-specific breakdown products (45K to 36K). Indirect immunofluorescence, using a panel of E protein-specific monoclonal antibodies, showed that the recombinant protein was presented both inside as well as on the surface of cells and was antigenically indistinguishable from the E protein of 17D yellow fever vaccine virus.
