Abstract

The Indiana serotype of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV), but not the New Jersey serotype (VSV), has been widely used as a gene expression vector. In terms of prime–boost-based vaccine strategies, it would be desirable to use two different VSV serotypes to avoid immunity against the priming viral vector. Here, we report that we have applied the VSV vector system for expression of the gene of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1). The HIV-1 gene was inserted into the VSV vector system at two different sites: between the P and M genes (NP-gp160-MGL) and between the G and L genes (NPMG-gp160-L). The HIV-1 gene product, gp160, was efficiently expressed and processed in cells infected with either of these two recombinant VSV–HIV-1 viruses. In this study, we have investigated the applicability of the VSV vector system for foreign gene expression.
