Yurie Kinoshita, Jian Xu, Akitsu Masuda, Kosuke Minamihata, Noriho Kamiya, Hiroaki Mon, Ryosuke Fujita, Takahiro Kusakabe, Man Lee, Expression and purification of biologically active human granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (hGM-CSF) using silkworm-baculovirus expression vector system, Protein Expression and Purification, 10.1016/j.pep.2019.03.010, 159, 69-74, 2019.07, Human granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (hGM-CSF) is a hematopoietic growth factor. It is widely employed as a therapeutic agent targeting neutropenia in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and in patients with AIDS or after bone marrow transplantation. In this study, we constructed the recombinant baculoviruses for the expression of recombinant hGM-CSF (rhGM-CSF) with two small affinity tags (His-tag and Strep-tag) at the N or C-terminus. Compared to N-tagged rhGM-CSF, C-tagged rhGM-CSF was highly recovered from silkworm hemolymph. The purified rhGM-CSF proteins migrated as a diffuse band and were confirmed to hold N-glycosylations. A comparable activity was achieved when commercial hGM-CSF was tested as a control. Considering the high price of hGM-CSF in the market, our results and strategies using silkworm-baculovirus system can become a great reference for mass production of the active rhGM-CSF at a lower cost..

Takumi Yano, Man Lee, Jian Xu, Yoshiki Morifuji, Akitsu Masuda, Masato Hino, Daisuke Morokuma, Ryosuke Fujita, Masateru Takahashi, Takahiro Kusakabe, Hiroaki Mon, Expression of the thermostable Moloney murine leukemia virus reverse transcriptase by silkworm-baculovirus expression system, Journal of Asia-Pacific Entomology, 10.1016/j.aspen.2019.02.008, 22, 2, 453-457, 2019.06, Reverse transcriptase from Moloney murine leukemia virus (MMLVRT) is an RNA dependent DNA polymerase, which has been used as a fundamental tool for molecular biology and biotechnology. The secondary structures formed in the RNA templates decrease the accessibility of the reverse transcriptase to the RNA templates; it is important to unfold the RNA secondary structure by increasing the reaction temperature to perform the successful transcription. In this study, we applied silkworm baculovirus expression vector system (silkworm-BEVS) to mass-produce and purify the recombinant MMLVRTs with the N- or C- terminal tandem tags. We confirmed that both of the recombinant MMLVRT enzymes have intact DNA polymerase activity. It is notable that C- terminal tagged MMLVRT outperformed MMLVRT obtained from the E. coli expression system in terms of thermostability and sensitivity to low quantities of RNA template. Taken together, these results demonstrate that silkworm-BEVS is a promising alternative strategy to produce the functional and thermostable reverse transcriptase..

The endoEF has broad substrate specificity and thus is extensively utilized for the structural and functional analysis of the O-linked glycans. In this study, we expressed and purified the recombinant endoEF (rEndoEF) by using the silkworm-baculovirus expression vector system (Silkworm-BEVS) and confirmed the deglycosylation activity of rEndoEF targeting reporter glycoproteins, which was equivalent to the commercial O-glycosidase. Thus, our study provides important clues to produce highly active rEndoEF O-glycosidases employing silkworm-BEVS as an alternative..

Enzyme-based signal amplification using horseradish peroxidase (HRP) is commonly implemented in clinical diagnostics kits based on enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), by which the limit of detection is greatly improved. Herein we report the design and preparation of recombinant fusion proteins comprising HRP and streptavidin (Stav), in which HRP was fused to either the N- or C-terminus of Stav ((HRP)

Jian Xu, Akihiro Morio, Daisuke Morokuma, Yudai Nagata, Masato Hino, Akitsu Masuda, Zhiqing Li, Hiroaki Mon, Takahiro Kusakabe, Man Lee, A functional polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase (PGANT) initiates O-glycosylation in cultured silkworm BmN4 cells, Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology, 10.1007/s00253-018-9309-6, 102, 20, 8783-8797, 2018.10, Mucin-type O-glycosylation is initiated by UDP-GalNAc:polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferases (ppGalNAc-Ts or PGANTs), attaching GalNAc to serine or threonine residue of a protein substrate. In the insect model from Lepidoptera, silkworm (Bombyx mori), however, O-glycosylation pathway is totally unexplored and remains largely unknown. In this study, as the first report regarding protein O-glycosylation analysis in silkworms, we verified the O-glycan profile that a common core 1 Gal (β1-3) GalNAc disaccharide branch without terminally sialylated structure is mainly formed for a baculovirus-produced human proteoglycan 4 (PRG4) protein. Intriguingly, functional screenings in cultured silkworm BmN4 cells for nine Bmpgants reveal that Bmpgant2 is the solo functional BmPGANT for PRG4, implying that Bmpgants may have unique cell/tissue or protein substrate preferences. Furthermore, a recombinant BmPGANT2 protein was successfully purified from silkworm-BEVS and exhibited a high ability to transfer GalNAc for both peptide and protein substrates. Taken together, the present results clarified the functional BmPGANT2 in cultured silkworm cells, providing crucial fundamental insights for future studies dissecting the detailed silkworm O-glycosylation pathways and productions of glycoproteins with O-glycans..
6. Patmawati xxxx, Kosuke Minamihata, Tsuneyuki Tatsuke, Man Lee, Takahiro Kusakabe, Noriho Kamiya, Expression and Activation of Horseradish Peroxidase–Protein A/G Fusion Protein in Silkworm Larvae for Diagnostic Purposes, Biotechnology Journal, 10.1002/biot.201700624, 13, 6, 2018.06, Recombinant protein production can create artificial proteins with desired functions by introducing genetic modifications to the target proteins. Horseradish peroxidase (HRP) has been used extensively as a reporter enzyme in biotechnological applications; however, recombinant production of HRP has not been very successful, hampering the utilization of HRP with genetic modifications. A fusion protein comprising an antibody binding protein and HRP will be an ideal bio-probe for high-quality HRP-based diagnostic systems. A HRP-protein A/G fusion protein (HRP-pAG) is designed and its production in silkworm (Bombyx mori) is evaluated for the first time. HRP-pAG is expressed in a soluble apo form, and is activated successfully by incubating with hemin. The activated HRP-pAG is used directly for ELISA experiments and retains its activity over 20 days at 4 °C. Moreover, HRP-pAG is modified with biotin by the microbial transglutaminase (MTG) reaction. The biotinylated HRP-pAG is conjugated with streptavidin to form a HRP-pAG multimer and the multimeric HRP-pAG produced higher signals in the ELISA system than monomeric HRP-pAG. The successful production of recombinant HRP in silkworm will contribute to creating novel HRP-based bioconjugates as well as further functionalization of HRP by applying enzymatic post-translational modifications..

Therefore, a large amount of biologically active rhbFGF is required. In this study, silkworm-baculovirus expression vector system (silkworm-BEVS) is employed to achieve a high productivity of recombinant rhbFGF with two small affinity tags (His-tag and STREP-tag) at the N or C-terminus. It is observed that rhbFGF with 30 K signal peptide of silkworm were successfully expressed but are not sufficiently secreted into the culture medium of cultured insect cells. Then we purified the N- or C-tagged intracellular rhbFGF protein and obtained a yield of about 0.7 mg/larva and 1.2 mg/larva, respectively. Although the final yield of the C-tagged rhbFGF is higher than that of the N-tagged, rhbFGF with N-tag demonstrated promising and comparable biological activity, which is evaluated through a mammalian cell proliferation assay. Taken together, these results indicate that silkworm-BEVS could contribute to the mass-production of the biologically active rhbFGF for medical uses..
8. Mitsunori Shiroishi, Yuji Ito, Kenta Shimokawa, Man Lee, Takahiro Kusakabe, Tadashi Ueda, Structure–function analyses of a stereotypic rheumatoid factor unravel the structural basis for germline-encoded antibody autoreactivity, Journal of Biological Chemistry, 10.1074/jbc.M117.814475, 293, 18, 7008-7016, 2018.01, Rheumatoid factors (RFs) are autoantibodies against the fragment-crystallizable (Fc) region of IgG. In individuals with hematological diseases such as cryoglobulinemia and certain B cell lymphoma forms, the RFs derived from specific heavy- and light-chain germline pairs, so-called “stereotypic RFs,” are frequently produced in copious amounts and form immune complexes with IgG in serum. Of note, many structural details of the antigen recognition mechanisms in RFs are unclear. Here we report the crystal structure of the RF YES8c derived from the IGHV1-69/IGKV3-20 germline pair, the most common of the stereotypic RFs, in complex with human IgG1-Fc at 2.8 Å resolution. We observed that YES8c binds to the CH2–CH3 elbow in the canonical antigen-binding manner involving a large antigen–antibody interface. On the basis of this observation, combined with mutational analyses, we propose a recognition mechanism common to IGHV1-69/IGKV3-20 RFs: (1) the interaction of the Leu
432
–His
435
region of Fc enables the highly variable complementarity-determining region (CDR)-H3 to participate in the binding, (2) the hydrophobic tip in the CDR-H2 typical of IGHV1-69 antibodies recognizes the hydrophobic patch on Fc, and (3) the interaction of the highly conserved RF light chain with Fc is important for RF activity. These features may determine the putative epitope common to the IGHV1-69/IGKV3-20 RFs. We also showed that some mutations in the binding site of RF increase the affinity to Fc, which may aggravate hematological diseases. Our findings unravel the structural basis for germline-encoded antibody autoreactivity..

Akitsu Masuda, Man Lee, Takeshi Miyata, Tetsuo Sato, Shizuka Hayashi, Masato Hino, Daisuke Morokuma, Noriko Karasaki, Hiroaki Mon, Takahiro Kusakabe, Purification and characterization of immunogenic recombinant virus-like particles of porcine circovirus type 2 expressed in silkworm pupae, Journal of General Virology, 10.1099/jgv.0.001087, 99, 7, 917-926, 2018.01, Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) is a primary causative agent of postweaningmultisystemic wasting syndrome (PMWS), which has a significant economic impact on the swine industry. The capsid protein (Cap) encoded by ORF2 of the viral genome has been used effectively as a vaccine against PCV2 infection. The Cap protein can spontaneously assemble into virus-like particles (VLPs) that are safe and highly immunogenic for vaccine applications. Several expression systems, including bacteria, yeast and insect cells, have been utilized to produce PCV2 VLPs. However, in some cases, the recombinant Cap (rCap) proteins produced in bacteria and yeast do not assemble spontaneously. In this study, we expressed rCap protein using a silkworm–baculovirus expression vector system (silkworm–BEVS) for mass production of PCV2 VLPs and established a simple three-step protocol for its purification from pupae: extraction by detergent, ammonium sulfate precipitation and anion exchange column chromatography. Size-exclusion chromatography (SEC) analysis and transmission electron microscope (TEM) observation showed that purified rCap proteins formed VLPs with a similar morphology to that of the original virus. Furthermore, the VLPs produced in silkworms were capable of inducing neutralizing antibodies against PCV2 in mice. Our results demonstrated that the silkworm system is a powerful tool for the production of PCV2 VLPs and will be useful for the development of a reliable and cost-effective PCV2 vaccine..

Akitsu Masuda, Kosuke Minamihata, Masato Hino, Daisuke Morokuma, Noriko Karasaki, Hiroaki Mon, Noriho Kamiya, Takahiro Kusakabe, Man Lee, Modular surface display for porcine circovirus type 2 virus-like particles mediated by microbial transglutaminase, Journal of Insect Biotechnology and Sericology, 10.11416/jibs.87.2_053, 87, 2, 53-60, 2018.01, Virus-like particles (VLPs) are multi-protein complex, which mimic viral particles without viral genomes. Recently various applications of VLPs for medical and pharmaceutical fields are developed. Furthermore, surface modification of VLPs is expected to extend their functional versatility. As an enzymatic strategy for the modification, microbial transglutaminase (MTG) that catalyzes the covalent bond between a glutamine residue and a ly-sine residue or a primary amine is suitable for efficient protein ligation. In the previous study, we demonstrated the efficient production of immunogenic VLPs of porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) using silkworm-baculovirus expression vector system (silkworm-BEVS). Herein, we established the display system of exotic molecules to VLPs by enzymatic covalent cross-linking using MTG. For the target modification, Q-tag (YPLQMRG) that is MTG reactive sequence were introduced into the N-terminus, C-terminus, or loop BC of capsid protein of PCV2 and successfully expressed as VLPs in silkworm pupae. Of these, PCV2 VLPs with Q-tag at the loop BC and C-terminus were efficiently conjugated with FITC-cadaverine and K-tagged (MRHKGS) EGFP by MTG. These results showed that flexible surface modification of VLPs mediated by MTG could be used for development of several therapeutic tools such as multivalent vaccines..

-antitrypsin is mainly purified from human plasma. There is a high demand for a stable and low-cost supply of recombinant AAT (rAAT). In this study, the baculovirus expression vector system using silkworm larvae as host was employed and a large amount of highly active AAT was recovered from the silkworm serum (~ 15 mg/10 ml) with high purity. Both the enzymatic activity and stability of purified rAAT were comparable with those of commercial product. Our results provide an alternative method for mass production of the active rAAT in pharmaceutical use..

Hamdan, Kosuke Sakashita, Kazuhiro Iiyama, Yutaka Banno, Takahiro Kusakabe, Jae Man Lee, Characterization of Recombinant Thermococcus kodakaraensis (KOD) DNA Polymerases Produced Using Silkworm-Baculovirus Expression Vector System, Molecular Biotechnology, 10.1007/s12033-017-0008-9, 59, 6, 221-233, 2017.06, The KOD DNA polymerase from Thermococcus kodakarensis (Tkod-Pol) has been preferred for PCR due to its rapid elongation rate, extreme thermostability and outstanding fidelity. Here in this study, we utilized silkworm-baculovirus expression vector system (silkworm-BEVS) to express the recombinant Tkod-Pol (rKOD) with N-terminal (rKOD-N) or C-terminal (rKOD-C) tandem fusion tags. By using BEVS, we produced functional rKODs with satisfactory yields, about 1.1 mg/larva for rKOD-N and 0.25 mg/larva for rKOD-C, respectively. Interestingly, we found that rKOD-C shows higher thermostability at 95 °C than that of rKOD-N, while that rKOD-N is significantly unstable after exposing to long period of heat-shock. We also assessed the polymerase activity as well as the fidelity of purified rKODs under various conditions. Compared with commercially available rKOD, which is expressed in E. coli expression system, rKOD-C exhibited almost the same PCR performance as the commercial rKOD did, while rKOD-N did lower performance. Taken together, our results suggested that silkworm-BEVS can be used to express and purify efficient rKOD in a commercial way..
13. Daisuke Morokuma, Jian Xu, Masato Hino, Hiroaki Mon, Jasmeen S. Merzaban, Masateru Takahashi, Takahiro Kusakabe, Jae Man Lee, Expression and Characterization of Human β-1, 4-Galactosyltransferase 1 (β4GalT1) Using Silkworm–Baculovirus Expression System, Molecular Biotechnology, 10.1007/s12033-017-0003-1, 59, 4-5, 151-158, 2017.05, Baculovirus expression vector system (BEVS) is widely known as a mass-production tool to produce functional recombinant glycoproteins except that it may not be always suitable for medical practice due to the differences in the structure of N-linked glycans between insects and mammalian. Currently, various approaches have been reported to alter N-linked glycan structures of glycoproteins derived from insects into terminally sialylated complex-type N-glycans. In the light of those studies, we also proposed in vitro maturation of N-glycan with mass-produced and purified glycosyltransferases by silkworm–BEVS. β-1,4-Galactosyltransferase 1 (β4GalT1) is known as one of type II transmembrane enzymes that transfer galactose in a β-1, 4 linkage to accepter sugars, and a key enzyme for further sialylation of N-glycans. In this study, we developed a large-scale production of recombinant human β4GalT1 (rhβ4GalT1) with N- or C-terminal tags in silkworm–BEVS. We demonstrated that rhβ4GalT1 is N-glycosylated and without mucin-type glycosylation. Interestingly, we found that purified rhβ4GalT1 from silkworm serum presented higher galactosyltransferase activity than that expressed from cultured mammalian cells. We also validated the UDP-galactose transferase activity of produced rhβ4GalT1 proteins by using protein subtracts from silkworm silk gland. Taken together, rhβ4GalT1 from silkworms can become a valuable tool for producing high-quality recombinant glycoproteins with mammalian-like N-glycans..
