Construction of vaccinia virus recombinants expressing several measles virus proteins and analysis of their efficacy in vaccination of mice

By T. F. Wild, F A. Bernard, D. Spehner and R. Drillien


Measles virus genes encoding the haemagglutinin (HA), fusion protein (F) or nucleoprotein (NP) have been inserted into the vaccinia virus genome either alone or in various combinations. In each case the measles virus genes were expressed from the 7.5K promoter and were incorporated into the thymidine kinase (tk) or K1L loci of the Copenhagen strain of vaccinia virus. Cells infected by the recombinants synthesized measles virus proteins indistinguishable from those induced in measles virus-infected cells. However, in some instances the level of expression in cells infected by recombinants expressing more than one measles virus gene was reduced when compared to those encoding a single gene. The sera from mice immunized with recombinants containing either HA
