Mice immunized with DNA encoding a modified Pseudomonas aeruginosa exotoxin A develop protective immunity against exotoxin intoxication



Mice immunized with DNA encoding a modified Pseudomonas aeruginosa exotoxin A develop protective immunity against exotoxin intoxication



Vaccine 19(9-10): 1106-1112



A recombinant plasmid, which contains the Pseudomonas aeruginosa exotoxin A (PE) gene with a C-terminal deletion, was inserted into expression vector pSecTag Xpress. The expression of this bacterial exotoxin in an animal cell was first demonstrated in 3T3 cell by transient transfection and western blot assay. Recombinant plasmid DNA was then injected intramuscularly to BALB/c mice, anti-PE specific antibodies were found in all animals vaccinated with plasmid containing the PE gene and with 'detoxicated' recombinant PE protein. Mice vaccinated with DNA were protected from the intoxication of lethal dosage of P. aeruginosa exotoxin A. Our results indicated that mice vaccinated with DNA encoding the PE gene could express PE protein in vivo, induced specific immune response, and provided sufficient protective immunity that safeguarded mice from the injection of lethal dosage of PE toxin.
