We constructed a cell surface-bound form of a fluid phase CRP. Factor I-Pl
The cell membrane-bound form of factor I (fl-Pl) was constructed. An SEC line with a low expression of fl-Pl showed a weak inhibition of cell lysis in human serum, whereas a CHO cell transfectant with a high expression of fl-Pl showed over a 60% inhibition of cell lysis.
A surface-bound form of human C1-INH (C1-INH-Pl) was constructed Flowcytometric profiles of the stable CHO and SEC transfectants with C1-INH-Pl showed a medium level of expression of these molecules. C1-INH-Pl block human complement-mediated cell lysis by approximately 75% on the CHO cell and by 60-65% on the SEC cell, respectively.
The codon-optimization DAF
The DAF gene was synthesized in order to adapt its codons for those which are more frequent in mammals, especially pigs.
A significant increase in protein production with no detectable mRNA elevation was observed in the transfectants of synthetic DAF (sDAF), compared with the wild-type DAF. Consistent with the in vitro data, the expression of DAF in the mice which carry sDAF was higher than wild-type DAF in many organs.
Assessment of the effect of various forms of C1-INH-Pl and DAF
cDNAs of various deletion mutants of the C1-INH-Pl were established. While all deletion mutants of C1-INH-Pl except the delta-1-99AA were not expressed on the cell surface. Consequently, both the delta1-99AA C1-INH-Pl and delta-SCR1 DAF molecules are quite effective in downregulating the xenogeneic cell lysis, but accomplished this in different manners.
The complement regulatory function of a HSV-1 glycoprotein gC (HSV-gC1) molecule was investigated. The CHO cell transfectants showed a significant inhibition in cell lysis by the sera except for those that contained the preexisting anti-HSV-gC1 antibody. The SEC transfectants, however, showed a marked inhibition of cell lysis in all cases.
