Legend of supplemental Fig. 1 Detection of HCV protein expression from VEE/SIN replicon particles by Western blotting. A. Detection of E1 and E2 expression from the BHK cell lysates with VEE/SIN-E1E2 and VEE/SIN-E1E2p7 infection. VEE/SIN-NS345 is a negative control. rE1E2p7 protein is a positive control. The size was indicated corresponding to E1 (33-35kDa) and E2 (68-74kDa). EndoH: protein was treated with EndoH (Biolab) at 37ºC for 1 hour. B. Detection of NS3, NS4, NS5A and NS5B expression from the cell lysates with VEE/SIN-NS345 infection. rE1E2p7 is a negative control. SOD-C33C (a.a ), SOD-C100 (a.a ), and SOD-NS5 (a.a ) are recombinant proteins used as positive controls for the detection of NS3, NS4, NS5A and NS5B respectively. The size was indicated corresponding to NS3, NS4A, NS4B, NS4A/B, NS5A and NS5B. * Indicated the specific detection of the proteins.
Legend of supplemental Fig. 2 Detection of CD4 + and CD8 + T cells responses by ICS/FACS. BALB/c mice (n = 10) received three injections i.m. at 3-week intervals by the immunogens as indicated. The spleen cells were harvested 2 weeks after the last immunization and stimulated with 10 g/ml of HCV specific peptides for ICS and FACS analysis. The data are presented as dot plots of ICS for CD4 + and IFN- after E1 peptide pool stimulation (A) and for CD8 + and IFN- after CD8 E2 peptide stimulation (B). Significant responses are indicated by circles in the upper-right quadrant.
Legend of supplemental Fig. 3 VEE/SIN-E1E2 immunization and Prime/boost regimen with E1E2/MF59 and VEE/SIN-E1E2 could stimulate good CD8 + T cells responses. BALB/c mice (n = 10) were received three injections i.m. at 3-week intervals by the immunogens as indicated. The spleen cells were harvested at 2 weeks after the last immunization and stimulated with 10 g/ml of HCV specific peptides for ICS and FACS analysis. 20-mer over-lapping peptide pools for HCV-1a E1 region (E1 pool) and E2 region (E2 pool), and single peptide to E2 for CD4 + T cells (CD4 E2 pep) and CD8 + T cells (CD8 E2 pep) were used for stimulation. The data are presented as mean total percentages of CD8 + IFN- + cells from two pools (five mice per pool). * P<0.05 as compared with PBS control group.
