An attenuated strain of Shigella flexneri was utilised to express viral protein (VP) 4 of rotavirus and the immunogenicity of the recombinant constructs was studied in BALB/c mice. VP4 was expressed as a fusion with maltose binding protein (MBP) in both the cytoplasm and periplasm, with a much higher level of expression occurring in the former. While all constructs induced a Shigella-specific response in mice, only the construct expressing MBP-VP4 in the cytoplasm of Shigella stimulated an...[Show more]
