    Abstract: Provided are a eukaryotic expression system and its applications. The eukaryotic expression system has a recombinant plant cell. The recombinant plant cell includes a first vector and a second vector. The first vector expresses a fusion protein containing an Asia tospoviral common epitope. The fusion protein containing Asia tospoviral common epitope consists of an amino acid sequence as set forth in SEQ ID NO. 1, and a predetermined protein fragment connecting to the Asia tospoviral common epitope. The above eukaryotic expression system is useful for monitoring the interaction between proteins via use of a specific peptide to tag the predetermined protein and demonstrates high sensitivity and stability.

    Abstract: The present disclosure provides compositions and methods for the generation of an antibody or immunogenic composition, such as a vaccine, through epitope focusing by variable effective antigen surface concentration. Generally, the composition and methods of the disclosure comprise three steps: a “design process” comprising one or more in silico bioinformatics steps to select and generate a library of potential antigens for use in the immunogenic composition; a “formulation process”, comprising in vitro testing of potential antigens, using various biochemical assays, and further combining two or more antigens to generate one or more immunogenic compositions; and an “administering” step, whereby the immunogenic composition is administered to a host animal, immune cell, subject or patient. Further steps may also be included, such as the isolation and production of antibodies raised by host immune response to the immunogenic composition.

  • Publication number: 20150067923
    Abstract: Plant genes regulated by transcription factors that control the gene network response to an environmental perturbation or signal are described. This class of genes responds to the perturbation of a transcription factor and the signal it transduces, but surprisingly, without stable binding of the transcription factor. These genes represent members of the “dark matter” of metabolic regulatory circuits. The invention involves the transgenic manipulation of these “response genes” and/or the genes encoding their regulatory transcription factors in plants so that their respective gene products are either overexpressed or underexpressed in the plant in order to confer a desired phenotype. The invention also relates to a rapid technique named “TARGET” (Transient Assay Reporting Genome-wide Effects of Transcription factors) for determining such “response genes” and their transcription factors by perturbation of the expression of the transcription factors of interest in protoplasts of any plant species.

  • Publication number: 20150052643
    Abstract: Methods and compositions are provided which employ a silencing element that, when ingested by a pest, such as a Pentatomidae plant pest or a N. viridula, Acrosternum hilare, Piezodorus guildini, and/or Halymorpha halys plant pest, decrease the expression of a target sequence in the pest. In specific embodiments, the decrease in expression of the target sequence controls the pest and thereby the methods and compositions are capable of limiting damage to a plant. The present invention provides various target polynucleotides set forth in any one of SEQ ID NOS: 1-292 or 302-304 or active variants and fragments thereof, wherein a decrease in expression of one or more the sequences in the target pest controls the pest (i.e., has insecticidal activity). Further provided are silencing elements which when ingested by the pest decrease the level of the target polypeptide and thereby control the pest. In specific embodiment, the pest is Pentatomidae.

  • Patent number: 8951791
    Abstract: The present invention provides trans-complementation systems for expressing gene products in plants. In general, the invention provides systems including a carrier vector and a producer vector, both based on plant viruses. The producer vector is defective for at least one function needed for successful systemic infection of a plant, e.g., replication, cell-to-cell movement, or long distance movement. The carrier vector supplies the missing function in trans. Certain producer vectors lack a functional coat protein coding sequence, in which case the corresponding producer vector supplies coat protein in trans. The invention also provides novel plant viral vectors and methods of use, e.g., to produce polypeptides or active RNAs in plants.
