ClearColi BL21(DE3)-based expression of Zika virus antigens illustrates a rapid method of antibody production against emerging pathogens

Abstract : Available rapid, simple and accurate methods for detection and diagnosis of emerging viral diseases are required. Recently, there was an urgent need for specific antibodies against mosquito-borne Zika virus (ZIKV), which is an emerging zoonotic disease of medical concern in different regions of the world. Here, we showed that overexpression of ZIKV antigens in ClearColi BL21(DE3), a bacteria strain expressing a non-endotoxic form of LPS, is suitable for the production of specific ZIKV antisera. Two major ZIKV antigenic domains, the domain III from envelope E glycoprotein, which brings the virus-specific epitopes, and the N-terminal region of nonstructural NS1 glycoprotein, which is responsible for pathophysiological conditions, were overexpressed in ClearColi BL21(DE3). Immunization of adult rat with insoluble recombinant ZIKV antigens in inclusion bodies resulted in the production of specific antibodies in a few weeks. Anti-E and anti-NS1 antibodies are efficient as biological tools for ZIKV detection by indirect ELISA and immunoblot assay. This method could successfully be applied to any emerging viruses.
