Abstract

The cDNA coding for the major nonstructural protein, NS1, of bluetongue serotype 17 (BTV-17) was cloned previously. Using pUC plasmids, we have successfully expressed the NS1 protein in Escherichia coli as a lacZ-NS1 fusion protein. The recombinant NS1 protein reacted with rabbit anti-BTV-17 antiserum, and was thus immunologically indistinguishable from the native BTV-17 NS1 protein. This was the first bluetongue viral protein to be produced in a bacterial system.
