Abstract:Full-length cDNA of the VP4 gene of porcine rotavirus strain OSU was cloned into adenovirus type 5 (Ad5) downstream of the E3 promoter. The plaque-purified recombinant (Ad5-OSU VP4) expressed apparently authentic VP4 rotavirus outer capsid protein. The protein had the same molecular size (85 kDa) and electrophoretic mobility as did native OSU VP4 and was immunoprecipitated by a polyclonal antiserum raised to OSU VP4. Cotton rats that possessed prechallenge rotavirus antibodies that may have been acquired eithe… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
