  • Based on t he infectious clone p FD328 wit hin EIAV f ull2lengt h genome , and according to the variation of structural genes during vaccine preparation , several chimeric infectious clones involved in gag and env genes , modified by overlap PCR site2 directed mutagenesis , were constructed successfully. These clones were used to t ransfect fetal donkey dermal (FDD) cell s and donkey differentiated monocyte macrop hages (DL ) , and their infectious characteristics were monitored by RT-PCR and rever set ranscriptase activity assay. The results indicated that after five generations passaged in FDD cell s t hen five generations in differentiated monocyte2macrop hages , RT activity and RT2PCR were found to be obviously positive in cell cult ure supernatant and viruses particles were al so clearly observed under electron microscope.

Analysis of the replicative characteristics between these chimeric viruses and t heir parental virus pL GFD328 showed that the formers slightly delayed in replication compared with the latter . All this provides a solid basis for further study of the pathogenic mechanism and immune protection against Chinese equine infectious anemia virus.

    Abstract: Based on t he infectious clone p FD328 wit hin EIAV f ull2lengt h genome , and according to the variation of structural genes during vaccine preparation , several chimeric infectious clones involved in gag and env genes , modified by overlap PCR site2 directed mutagenesis , were constructed successfully. These clones were used to t ransfect fetal donkey dermal (FDD) cell s and donkey differentiated monocyte macrop hages (DL ) , and their infectious characteristics were monitored by RT-PCR and rever set ranscriptase activity assay. The results indicated that after five generations passaged in FDD cell s t hen five generations in differentiated monocyte2macrop hages , RT activity and RT2PCR were found to be obviously positive in cell cult ure supernatant and viruses particles were al so clearly observed under electron microscope. Nevertheless , t he final viral titer s of these artificial viruses in DL culture were obviously higher than that in FDD culture. Analysis of the replicative characteristics between these chimeric viruses and t heir parental virus pL GFD328 showed that the formers slightly delayed in replication compared with the latter . All this provides a solid basis for further study of the pathogenic mechanism and immune protection against Chinese equine infectious anemia virus.
