The N-glycosylation of classical swine fever virus E2 glycoprotein extracellular domain expressed in the milk of goat
Keywords: e2 glycoprotein, goat milk, N-Glycosylation pattern, Classical swine fever virus
Classical swine fever virus (CSFV) outer surface E2 glycoprotein represents an important target to induce protective immunization during infection but the influence of N-glycosylation pattern in antigenicity is yet unclear. In the present work, the N-glycosylation of the E2-CSFV extracellular domain expressed in goat milk was determined. Enzymatic N-glycans releasing, 2-aminobenzamide (2AB) labeling, weak anion-exchange and normal-phase HPLC combined with exoglycosidase digestions and mass spectrometry of 2AB-labeled and unlabeled N-glycans showed a heterogenic population of oligomannoside, hybrid and complex-type structures. The detection of two Man(8)GlcNAc(2) isomers indicates an alternative active pathway in addition to the classical endoplasmic reticulum processing. N-acetyl or N-glycolyl monosialylated species predominate over neutral complex-type N-glycans. Asn207 site-specific micro-heterogeneity of the E2 most relevant antigenic and virulence site was determined by HPLC-mass spectrometry of glycopeptides. The differences in N-glycosylation with respect to the native E2 may not disturb the main antigenic domains when expressed in goat milk. (C) 2010 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
