A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

The use of the food-grade bacterium Lactococcus lactis as antigen delivery vehicle at the mucosal level is an attractive vaccination strategy intensively explored during the last decade. In this study, we developed L. lactis strains which could be used as a DNA delivery vector to combine both advantages of mucosal delivery and of DNA vaccination. To render lactococci capable of invading epithelial cells, the Listeria monocytogenes inlA gene was cloned and expressed in L. lactis under transcriptional control of the native promoter. Western blot and immunofluorescence assays revealed that recombinant lactococci efficiently displayed the cell wall anchored form of InlA. We demonstrated that this expression promotes internalization of L. lactis inlA+ into the human epithelial cell line Caco-2. Gentamicin assay showed that invasiveness of L. lactis in these cells is approximately 100-fold higher for L. lactis inlA+ than for wild type (wt) L. lactis strains. Moreover, we showed that L. lactis inlA+ is able to enter intestinal cells in vivo, after oral inoculation of guinea pigs. After internalization, L. lactis inlA+ was able to deliver a functional eukaryotic gfp gene into epithelial Caco-2 cells; GFP was detected in 1% of internalized cells. The L. lactis inlA+ strain will be a useful bacterial vector for the development of new live oral DNA vaccines. It also constitutes an interesting new model to study the role of internalin in bacterial localization in the animal host.
