  • A circular mRNA vaccine prototype producing VFLIP-X spike confers a broad neutralization of SARS-CoV-2 variants by mouse sera
    A circular mRNA vaccine prototype producing VFLIP-X spike confers a broad neutralization of SARS-CoV-2 variants by mouse sera July 29,2022.
    Next-generation COVID-19 vaccines are critical due to the ongoing evolution of SARS-CoV-2 virus and rapid waning duration of the neutralizing antibody response against current vaccines. The mRNA vaccines mRNA-1273 and BNT162b2 were developed using linear transcripts encoding the prefusion-stabilized trimers (S-2P) of the wildtype spike, which have shown a reduced neutralizing activity against the variants of concern B.1.617.2 and B.1.1.529. Recently, a new version of spike trimer, termed VFLIP (five (V) prolines, Flexibly-Linked, Inter-Protomer disulfide) was developed. Based on the original amino acid sequence of the wildtype spike, VFLIP was genetically engineered by using five proline substitutions, a flexible cleavage site amino acid linker, and an interprotomer disulfide bond. It has been suggested to possess native-like glycosylation, and greater pre-fusion trimeric stability as opposed to S-2P. Here, we report that the spike protein VFLIP-X, containing six rationally substituted amino acids to reflect emerging variants (K417N, L452R, T478K, E484K, N501Y and D614G), offers a promising candidate for a next-generation SARS-CoV-2 vaccine. Mice immunized by a circular mRNA (circRNA) vaccine prototype producing VFLIP-X had detectable neutralizing antibody titers for up to 7 weeks post-boost against SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern (VOCs) and variants of interest (VOIs). In addition, a balance in TH1 and TH2 responses was achieved by immunization with VFLIP-X. The researchers's results indicate that the VFLIP-X delivered by circRNA induces humoral and cellular immune responses, as well as broad neutralizing activity against SARSCoV-2 variants.

  • A bioengineered arginine-depleting enzyme as a long-lasting therapeutic agent against cancer
    A bioengineered arginine-depleting enzyme as a long-lasting therapeutic agent against cancer July 15,2022.
    L-Arginine (L-Arg) depletion has attracted great attention in cancer therapy. Although two types of arginine-depleting enzymes, arginine deiminase (ADI) and human arginase I, are undergoing clinical trials, random site of PEGylation, low efficacy of heavy metal as co-factor, and immunogenicity limit the performance of these drugs and cause difficulty in a homogeneous production. Here we screened ten catalytic metal ions and have successfully produced a site-specific mono-PEGylated human arginase I mutant by conjugating the Cys45 residue to PEG-maleimide to minimize the decrease in activity and produce a homogeneous product. The catalytic efficiency trend of metal ion–enriched human arginase I mutant (HAI) was Co2+ > Ni2+ ≫ Mn2+. The overall kcat/KM values of Co-HAI and Ni-HAI were higher than Mn-HAI by ~ 8.7- and ~ 5.2-folds, respectively. Moreover, the results of enzyme kinetics and circular dichroism spectrometry demonstrated that the 20 or 40 kDa linear and branched PEG attached on the HAI surface did not affect the enzyme activity and the protein secondary structures. In vitro studies showed that both Co-HAI-PEG20L and Ni-HAI-PEG20L inhibited the growth of eight types of cancer cell lines. The pharmacodynamic study in mice demonstrated that the i.p. administration of Co-HAI-PEG20L at 13 mg/kg and Ni-HAI-PEG20L at 15 mg/kg was able to maintain a L-Arg level below its detection limit for over 120 h after one injection. The body weights of mice could return to normal levels within 5 days after injection, showing that the doses were well-tolerated. Therefore, both the Ni-HAI-PEG20L and Co-HAI-PEG20L are promising candidates for cancer therapy. SINOPEG can supply linear PEG-maleimide: Chung S F ,  Kim C F ,  Tam S Y , et al.

  • Plant-derived cholesterol from SINOPEG
    Plant-derived cholesterol from SINOPEG July 6,2022.
    Plant-derived cholesterol is the most important raw material component in mRNA vaccine production and gene therapy. As one of the key functional excipients of lipid nanoparticles (LNPs), cholesterol plays a role in mediating LNP endocytosis as well as stabilizing the LNP structure (cholesterol helps increase the fluidity or stiffness of cell membranes and the addition of cholesterol improves the stability of nanoparticles). Meanwhile, with the rapid development of related research, lipid-based drug delivery systems are becoming increasingly important in a wider range of therapeutic areas, including vaccines for infectious diseases, cancer immunotherapy, etc. SINOPEG supplies to the market plant-derived cholesterol products of non-animal origin without genetic risk, eliminating concerns about the risk of animal-derived cholesterol carrying animal viruses, and can be used in high-end formulation excipients: small molecule liposomal drugs, nucleic acid drugs, mRNA vaccines and non-animal-derived cell culture media for protein-based drugs.
