Patent
Agricultural Technology Research Institute | Date: 2017-03-08

Provided in the present invention are anti-Mycoplasma spp. subunit vaccines, especially proteins suitable for being used as the active ingredient of the Mycoplasma spp. subunit vaccines, and a vaccine prepared therefrom. Upon experimenting, it is confirmed that the proteins can elicit an immune response having sufficient strength to avoid the infection of Mycoplasma spp. in pigs. The vaccine can comprise one of the aforementioned proteins as an active ingredient, or can comprise two or more of the proteins to form a form of cocktail vaccine. The vaccine of the present invention is not only more safe than conventional vaccines, but also has equivalent or even better immune effects.

A synthetic peptide that targets cancer stem cells is provided. The peptide consists of the amino acid sequence of anyone of SEQ ID NO: 1 to SEQ ID NO: 15. Also provided is a composition comprising said synthetic peptide with a therapeutic agent fused thereto, and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier or diluent. Further provided is a method of screening a peptide specifically targeting to a cancer stem cell. The method comprises the steps of establishing an oligopeptide library by using a phage expression system, contacting the library with a culture of bulk tumor cells of a cancer cell line, contacting the phages which do not bind to the bulk tumor cells with a culture of cancer stem cells of said cancer cell line, and screening a peptide specifically targeting to a cancer stem cell from the phages which bind to the cancer stem cells.

The present invention provides proteins that are suitable to be used as the active ingredient in subunit vaccine against Mocoplasma spp. The present invention also provides a subunit vaccine made therefrom. Said proteins have been experimentally proved to have the capability of inducing sufficient immune response to avoid pigs from Mycoplasma spp. infection. Said vaccine may have one of said proteins as active ingredient; or may have two or more of said proteins and is formulated as a cocktail vaccine. The present vaccine not only is safer than the conventional vaccines but also has equal or even better immune efficiency than the conventional ones. Furthermore, fusion partners suitable for producing said proteins of high solubility are also proved, which can significantly reduce production cost.
