Patent
GlycoVaxyn and Glaxosmithkline | Date: 2014-10-13

Described herein are modified host cells useful in the production of bioconjugates that can be used to vaccinate subjects against infection with Pseudomonas. The genomes of the modified host cells described herein comprise genes that encode proteins involved in glyosylation of proteins as well as genes specific to the production of Pseudomonas-specific antigens.


Patent
GlycoVaxyn | Date: 2017-01-25

The present invention encompasses a novel S. aureus bioconjugate vaccine. More generally, the invention is directed to Gram-positive and other bioconjugate vaccines containing a protein carrier, at least one polysaccharide such as a capsular Gram-positive polysaccharide, and, optionally, an adjuvant or pharmaceutically acceptable carrier. The instant invention also includes methods of producing Gram-positive and other bioconjugate vaccines. An N-glycosylated protein is also provided that contains one or more polysaccharides such as Gram-positive polysaccharides. The invention is additionally directed to engineered prokaryotic organisms comprising nucleotide sequences encoding a glycosyltransferase of a first prokaryotic organism and a glycosyltransferase of a second prokaryotic organism. The invention further includes plasmids and prokaryotic cells transformed with plasmids encoding polysaccharides and enzymes which produce an N-glycosylated protein and/or bioconjugate vaccine. Further, the invention is directed to methods of inducing an immune response in a mammal comprising administering said bioconjugate vaccines.

Provided herein is a novel E. coli O polysaccharide, O25B. Also provided herein are prokaryotic host cells comprising enzymes (e.g., glycosyltransferases) used in O25B production. The host cells provided herein produce 025B bioconjugates, wherein said bioconjugates comprise O25B linked to a carrier protein. Further provided herein are compositions, e.g., pharmaceutical compositions, comprising O25B and/or bioconjugates comprising O25B. Such compositions can be used as vaccines against infection with ExPEC, and may further comprise one or more additional bioconjugates.
