According to the nucleotide sequence of Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV), two pairs of primers were designed and used to amplified the orf7 and orf5 genes by RT-PCR, respectively. By using the EcoRI、SpeI and Hind Ⅲ sites, both genes were cloned into pMD-18T vector in turn, then sequencing and comparing the homologies of the cloning genes. The combined orf7 and orf5 genes was subcloned into a prokaryotic expressing vector pGEX-KG, the recombinant plasmid named pGEX-KGNE was constructed and transformed into E.coli BL21.The results of SDS-PAGE and Western-blot indicated that the combined genes of orf7 and orf5 and Glutathion-S-transferase (GST) was expressed in E.coli BL21 as a fusion protein GST-NE about 64kDa in molecular weight, and this fusion protein showed reactive activity immunologically. This study lays a foundation for the development of the serodiagnostic methods and vaccines for PRRSV.
