Koi herpesvirus (KHV) which also known as Cyprinid herpesvirus 3 (CyHV-3), Koi herpes-like virus, and carp interstitial nephritis gill necrosis virus (CNGV), caused signifi cant morbidity and mortality in koi and common carp (Cyprinus carpio). The case fatality rate of this disease is 80–100%. Glycoprotein has been used for vaccine development as sub unit vaccine against viruses. The aim of this research was to clone and express membrane glycoprotein ORF124 KHV as a candidate of recombinant vaccine. ORF124 KHV gene was successfully cloned into pBSKS and sequenced. Result showed that ORF124 KHV (isolate from Indonesia) had 100 % similarity with Cyprinid herpesvirus 3 strain TUMST1 (from Japan), 99% similarity with Koi herpesvirus strain KHV-U (from USA) and Koi herpesvirus strain KHV-I (from Israel). Prediction analysis of T and B cell epitopes showed that ORF124 KHV protein had 14 and 11 T cell epitopes (IAd, Rothbard/Taylor pattern),and had 10 B cell epitopes, suggested that the protein can be used as a vaccine candidate. ORF124 gene has been expressed in Escherichia coli under pET32-a(+)vector.

Carcinogenesis may resulted from the malfunctioning of programmed cell death. Most of the anticancer drugs incurrent use induce apoptosis in susceptible cells. The fact that disparate agent interacting with different targets seemto induce cell death through some common mechanisms suggest that anticancer activity is determined by the abilityof inhibiting cell growth. Pentagamavunon-1 (PGV-1) is one of the curcumin analogues which showed to havepotency in inhibiting proliferation of T47D human breast carcinoma cells. The effects on T47D cells growth isassociated with cell cycle arrest in G2/M phase at the concentration of 2.5 ?M, followed by hyperploidy. The data onpolymerization assay, indicated that PGV-1 interact with tubulin in different manner from taxol. PGV-1 inhibittubulin polymerization on cell culture while taxol stabilized tubulin polymerization. Immunostainning data onPGV-1 treated cells showed slightly tubulin condensation, while taxol treated cells showed tubulin condensationdistinctly at 12 minutes after releasing from depolymerizing agent.In conclusion, PGV-1 represent a new microtubule inhibitor and has the potential to be developed for antimitoticdrugKey words: Pentagamavunon-1, T47D, tubulin

The purpose of this study was to analyze the phylogenetic relationship of Gram negative bacteria (3strains of Salmonella typhi, 1 strain of Escherichia coli, 1 strain of Serratia marcescens, and 3 strains of Enterobactercloacae) of Enterobacteriaceae family in positive Widal blood cultures based on 16S rRNA gene sequences. Theresults respectively showed that each two 16S rRNA gene clones of Serratia marcescens KD 08.4 had a closerelationship with 16S rRNA gene of Serrratia marcescens ATCC 13880 (similarity: 99.53-99.8%), Eschericia coliBA 30.1 with Eschericia coli ATCC 11775T (similarity: 99.38-99.67%), Salmonella typhi BA 07.4, Salmonella typhiKD 30.4, and Salmonella typhi SA 02.2 with Salmonella typhi ATCC 19430T (similarity: 99.4-100%) as well as theisolates of Enterobacter cloacae SA 02.1, Enterobacter cloacae BA 45.4.1, one 16S rRNA gene clone of Enterobactercloacae TG 03.5 with Enterobacter cloacae ATCC 23373 (similarity: 99.0-99.87%).

its chemical structure than curcumin. As a curcumin analogue, PGV-1 was considered to have anticanceractivities. This research was conducted to study the effect of PGV-1 on the cycle progression of T47D cells. Cytotoxiceffects of PGV-1 on T47D cells were determined using MTT assay, and the the effect on cell cycle progressionwas carried out using flowcytometry. Western blot analysis was used to analyze protein expression correspondingto cell cycle progression. The result showed that at the concentration of 2.5 μM PGV-1 inhibited cell cycleprogression through G2/M arrest and induced of cells hyperploidy formation. The hyperploidy formation inducedby PGV-1 was related to the increase of cdc-2 expression. PGV-1 2.5 μM elevated the level of p21 CIP/KIPthrough p53- independent manner. Apoptosis was also induced by PGV-1 at early phase of treatment indicated byPARP cleavage due to activation of caspase-3/7 after 12 h treatment. The results above suggest that PGV-1 inhibitsthe growth of T47D cells targeted on microtubules.Keywords: PGV-1, G2/M arrest, apoptosis, p21

HtrA which is characterized by the combination of a trypsin-like catalytic domain with at least one C-terminalPDZ domain is a highly conserved family of serine proteases found in a wide range of organisms. However theidentified HtrA family numbers varies among spesies, for example the number of mammalian, Eschericia coli,fruit fly-HtrA family are 4, 3 and 1 gene respectively. One gene is predicted exist in zebrafish. Since no completeinformation available on zebrafish HtrA, in this paper zebrafish HtrA (zHtrA) gene was analyzed. The zHtrA isbelonged to HtrA1 member and predicted encodes 478 amino acids with a signal peptide, a IGF binding domain,a Kazal-type inhibitor domain in the up stream of HtrA-bacterial homolog. At the amino acid sequence the zHtrA1showed the 69%, 69%, 68%, 54% and 54% with the rat HtrA1, mouse HtrA1, human HtrA1, human HtrA3 andmouse HtrA4 respectively. The zHtrA1 is firstly expressed at 60 hpf and mainly in the vertebral rudiments in thetail region.
