generation of rBCG strains expressing sm14 antigen

We have generated recombinant BCG strains that express the Schistosoma mansoni antigen, Sm14, in fusion with the beta-lactamase protein and signal sequence. Expression was obtained using a plasmid containing the upregulated beta-lactamase promoter, pBlaF. We have expressed Sm14 in BCG from the native gene. These rBCG-Sm14 strains induced a cellular Th1-type immune response, demonstrated by IFN-g production of cultured splenocytes upon stimulation with rSm14.
