  • MappinG of the functional domains of the α 4 protein of herpes simplex virus 1
    Archives of Virology, 1993
    Co-Authors: A. Sivropoulou, M. Arsenakis

    Abstract:

    Truncated α 4 Genes were introduced into BHK tk^− cells alonG with the neomycin phosphotransferase Gene, that confers resistance to the eukaryotic Antibiotic G 418, driven by the HSV-1 β tk promoter (β tk^−neo^r). Stably transformed cell lines were obtained and studied for the ability of the resident truncated α 4 Genes to reGulate the expression of the β tk^−neo^r, and for the ability of the truncated α 4 polypeptides to localize to the nuclei of transformed cells. The results indicated that the domain(s) for β Gene induction and for nuclear localization of the α 4 protein are located within the N-terminal 288 amino acids of the protein.

  • oriGinal contribution sensitivity of mccoy plovdiv cells to G 418 Antibiotic

    Co-Authors: V Alexandrov, Yana Feodorova, M Draganov, V Sarafian, S Naimov

    Abstract:

    McCoy-Plovdiv cells represent a serum-free in vitro system, which is suitable not only for diaGnostic purposes but also for studies on the bioloGical activity of different substances. In addition, it can be used for developinG an expression system for production and purification of various proteins. Isolation of successfully transfected cells is an important step in this process and different selection systems can be employed for this purpose. In order to assess the potential of the Antibiotic G418 as a selective aGent for transfection procedures of McCoy-Plovdiv cells, we determined its cytotoxic effect on untransfected cells. Two commercially available versions of the Antibiotic were tested: products of SiGma-Aldrich and Duchefa Biochemie. Cells were treated with a wide ranGe of G418 concentrations and cell vitality was measured with the WST-1 reaGent after 48 and 96 hours of treatment. Our results showed that concentrations in the ranGe 0.5-0.6 mG/ml of G418 from SiGma-Aldrich efficiently kill untransfected McCoy-Plovdiv cells whereas G418 from Duchefa Biochemie should be applied at hiGher concentrations: 0.9-1 mG/ml. Furthermore, medium replacement durinG treatment led to hiGher effective Antibiotic concentrations and thus to increased cell death rate, exclusively in cultures treated with hiGh G418 concentrations.
