I here by declare that the project work entitled “EXPRESSION,PURIFICATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF NEURAMINIDASE GENE OF INFLUENZA” submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirement for the Master of Science in Biotechnology from School of Biotechnology Chemical and Biomedical Engineering, VIT UNIVERSITY. The project is the result of work carried out under the supervision of Dr. Archana Giri, Head, CBT, IST, and JNTU-HYDERABAD.
Avian Influenza outbreaks among poultries are occur world wide from time to time with increasing Global pandemics. The strategies to prevent and test for avian influenza are becoming increasingly more important. One strain of avian influenza, H5N1, has already crossed the species border into humans. We propose a method for developing a subunit vaccine and influenza tests using Bacteria as the chassis, respectively. This system is easily amendable for targeting the two main antigens presented on the exterior of the influenza virus: Hemagglutinin and Neuraminidase. The purification and influenza vaccine & Diagnostics development. Recombinant envelop protein of H5N1, 55KDa of rNA1, was successfully produced in prokaryotic system by using pRSET/A expression vector, and the expression was optimized by IPTG, this shows the ideal condition to obtain high yield of rNA1 protein. The result of purification showed that the expressed protein purified form of rNA1.The quantification analysis through calorimetric assay revealed yield of recombinant protein rNA1 protein respectively. This experimental procedure completely shows production of recombinant AIV/NA protein in bacterial chassis especially in E coli for high yields at low cost & lesser time effectively. quantification Of Neuraminidase protein in this study will provide useful information further avian
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT Apart from the efforts of me, the success of this project depends largely on encouragement and guidelines of many others. I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the people who have been instrumental in the successful completion this project With a deep sense of gratitude, I record my sincere thanks to Dr. Archana Giri, Head, CBT, IST, JNTUH, HYDERABAD, for providing exhaustive facilities and Government funded project in Biotech Division.
