ABSTRACT

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To characterize the biological function of calmodulin (CaM) from Clonorchis sinensis (C. sinensis, Cs) and investigate its role in clonorchiasis-associated hepatic fibrosis.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>The full-length sequence of CsCaM gene was isolated from Cs cDNA library and its homologues were searched using BLASTx for comparison. Bioinformatics analysis was performed to compare the homologues and predict the physiochemical characteristics and functional domains. The gene was cloned in a prokaryotic plasmid and expressed in E. coli, and the recombinant protein was purified by affinity chromatography for immunizing rats to produce polyclonal antibodies, whose titer was determined using ELISA analysis. Immunoblotting analysis was carried out to determine of the purity and antibody recognition of CsCaM. Immunofluorescence assay was employed to analyze the tissue location of the protein. A rat model of liver fibrosis was established by introperitoneal injection of the recombinant protein.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The recombinant CsCaM protein obtained contained 150 amino acids with a theoretical molecular mass of 23.4 kD. CsCaM homologue had EF hand motifs. The recombinant pET-30a-CsCaM plasmid expressed in BL21 E. coli was about 23.4 kD. The total IgG antibody titer in the immunized mice reached the peak level (over 1: 51200) 2 to 4 weeks after the first injection. Immunohistochemistry showed that CsCaM located in the testis of adult C. sinensis. The rats receiving intraperitoneal injection of CsCaM showed severe liver inflammation with mild to moderate liver fibrosis.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>The pro-inflammation and pro-fibrosis effects of CsCaM in rat liver suggest its involvement in clonorchiasis- associated hepatic fibrosis.</p>

ABSTRACT

To analyze the structural characteristics of the Rap2B gene from Clonorchis sinensis by bioinformatics and to clone and express this gene through genetic engineering methods in order to obtain the corresponding recombinant protein.The structural and functional characteristics of the Rap2B protein were analyzed by using the related bioinformatic softwares. Using the full-length cDNA plasmid clone (Noc009e03) as template , the coding region of Rap2B gene sequence was amplified with PCR and cloned into the prokaryotic expression vector pET-28a(+) and then expressed in E.coli BL21 through IPIG induction. The recombinant protein expressed was purified by Ni-IDA affinity chromatography and detected by SDS-PAGE and Western blotting. It was demonstrated that the size of this gene was 847 bp in length, encoding 141 amino acids and its theoretical molecular weight was 15851.1 daltons. As demonstrated by PCR, double enzyme digestion and DNA sequencing, the recombinant expression plasmid pET-28a(+)-Rap2B was successively constructed and the Rap2B-like gene was highly expressed in E.coli BL21. The recombinant protein was obtained through purification with His affinity chromatography and could react specifically with the serum of rats infected with C.sinensis. Through these investigations, the Rap2B protein may be predicted as a member of the Ras oncogene family protein and is potential in the carcinogenic process of C.sinensis.

ABSTRACT

In order to determine whether H1 histone proteins are associated with innate immune antimicrobial response in goldfish, we extracted the total RNA from the hemocytes of goldfish (Carassius auratus), designed 3 pairs of primers based on the previous antimicrobial peptide sequences from fish and performed RT-PCR. Among 3 obtained-PCR products, we identified a novel histone H1 coding sequence of 576 bp which belongs to the histone H1 family and is 78% homologous with the amino acid sequence of histone H1 from Salmon salar that had been found with an important role in salmon defenses against infectious pathogens. The H1 histone of goldfish contained 3 predicting cleavage sites that divided the protein into 4 parts. We successfully cloned and expressed the whole CDs (No ATG) of H1 histone and its N-terminal part (2-38aa) in Pichia pPIC9K expression system. The products of H1 histone and its N-terminal deriving peptide (AEVAPAASAPPAKAPKKKSAAKAKKAGPAVGDLIVKA) show antimicrobial activity. The results suggested that the H1 histone fragment reported in this paper is a novel antimicrobial peptide found in goldfish. H1 histone plays an important role in innate immune responses of goldfish.

ABSTRACT

Objective To obtain the recombinant IgE-dependent histamine-releasing factors of Schistosoma japonicum and Clonorchis sinensis (rSjHRF and rCsHRF) and to study the effect of recombinant HRFs to induce histamine release from sensitized rat mast cells. Methods The complete coding regions of SjHRF and CsHRF were cloned separately, and the recombinant plasmids were respectively transformed and expressed in BL21 cells. The soluble recom-binant rSjHRF and rCsHRF were purified. Aliquots of the mast cells obtained from the lungs of OVA-immunized rats were separately incubated with rSjHRF and rCsHRF and the released histamine was measured by the OPT spectrofluorometric procedure. The dose-dependent curves and the kinetics of histamine release induced by rSjHRF and rCsHRF were prepared. Results The recombinant plasmids pET-30-rSjHRF and pET-30-rCsHRF were constructed successfully and the purified soluble recombinant proteins rSjHRF and rCsHRF were obtained by affinity chromatography. rSjHRF and rCsHRF induced histamine release from sensitized mast cells in a dose-dependent manner. At the concentration of 150 mg/L, the average rate of histamine release from sensitized mast cells induced by rSjHRF and rCsHRF were 49.78% and 32.63%, respectively. Histamine release increased with prolonged reaction time and the maximal release occurred at 35min. Conclusion The recombinant parasite-originated IgE-dependent HRFs show an effect of inducing histamine release from sensitized mast cells, suggesting that this protein would play a role in type I hypersensitivity in hosts with parasitic infections.
