The nonstructural protein gene 3ABC of Foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) was amplified by reverse transcription (RT) PCR and the PCR product was inserted into transfer vector pFastbacHT. Then, the recombinant vector pFastbac HT-3ABC was extracted and transfered into DH-{10}Bac containing a shuttle vector Bacmid. 3ABC gene was integrated into Bacmid by site specific transposition. Subsequently, recombinant shuttle vector Bacmid-3ABC was transfected with Hi Five insect cells. Identification by PCR amplification demonstrated that 3ABC gene was correctly inserted into baculovirus genome at the downstream of polyhedrin promoter. SDS-PAGE and Western blot analysis detected a band of about 50 kDa in the expression product of 3ABC gene in insect cells. The successful expression of 3ABC gene in Bac-to-Bac expression system should provide a new technical platform for the development of novel approaches for distinguishing the infected animals from vaccinated animals.
