Expression and cellular distribution of baculovirus-expressed bovine herpesvirus 1 (BHV-1) glycoprotein D (gD) sequences

Expression and cellular distribution of baculovirus-expressed bovine herpesvirus 1 (BHV-1)... Glycoprotein D (gD) of bovine herpesvirus 1 (BHV-1), a homolog of herpes simplex virus gD, represents a major component of the viral envelope and is a dominant immunogen. To study the antigenic properties of the different regions of gD, we have expressed the full-length gD encoding gene and overlapping fragments spanning various regions of the gD open reading frame in a baculovirus ( Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus) – insect cell ( Spodoptera frugiperda , SF-9) system. Maximum levels of expression for all proteins were obtained 48 to 72 h post infection of SF-9 cells by recombinant viruses. Full-length and truncated recombinant gD proteins reacted specifically with anti-gD monospecific serum as determined by immunoprecipitation and immunoblotting, indicating that the proteins retained their antigenicity. However, based on the reactivity with a panel of gD-specific monoclonal antibodies (Mabs), the full-length recombinant gD lacked proper expression for two highly neutralizing linear epitopes identified by Mabs R54 and 9D6. The rest of the epitopes appeared to be preserved and antigenically unaltered. Immunofluorescence studies of recombinant baculovirus infected SF-9 cells using gD monospecific serum, revealed no direct correlation between cellular localization of the expressed proteins and their amino acid sequences.
