Resumen

LI, Chaopin et al. Construction and expression of Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus group 1 major allergen T cell fusion epitope peptide vaccine vector based on the MHC II pathway. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2015, vol.32, n.5, pp.2274-2279. ISSN 1699-5198.  http://dx.doi.org/10.3305/nh.2015.32.5.9613.

Backgound and aims: Dermatophagoides peteronyssinus is one of the important house dust mites responsible for allergic asthma that can be tentatively managed by specific immunotherapy. The present study was to construct a vector encoding T-cell epitopes of major allergen group 1 of Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus as a vaccine delivered by MHC class II pathway. Methods: the nucleotide sequences of the 3 target genes were synthesized, including TAT, IhC and the recombinant fragment of Der p 1 encoding 3 T-cell epitopes. After amplification of the 3 target fragments by PCR and digestion with corresponding restriction endonucleases, the recombinant gene TAT-IhC-Der p 1-3T was ligated using T4 DNA ligase and inserted into the prokaryotic expression vector pET28a(+) to construct the recombinant plasmid pET- 28a(+)-TAT-IhC-Der p 1-3T, which was confirmed by digestion with restriction endonucleases and sequencing. The recombinant vector was transformed into E. coli strain BL21 (DE3) and induced with IPTG, and the induced protein TAT-IhC-Der p1-3T was detected by SDS-PAGE. After purification, the recombinant protein was confirmed by Western blotting and its allergenicity tested using IgE-binding assay. Results: the recombinant plasmid pET-28a-TAT-IhCDer p1-3T was successfully constructed as confirmed by restriction endonuclease digestion and sequencing, and the expression of the recombinant protein TAT-IhC-Der p1-3T was induced in E. coli. Western blotting verified successfull purification of the target protein, which showed a stronger IgE-binding ability than Der p1. Conclusion: we successfully constructed the recombinant expression vector pET-28a-TAT-IhC-Der p1-3T expressing a T-cell epitope vaccine delivered by MHC II pathway with strong IgE-binding ability, which provides a basis for further study on specific immunotherapy via MHC class II pathway.
