The essential operating parameters in virus vaccine production are multiplicity of infection (MOI), harvest time, and infection time. Stimulating agents also can be applied in order to improve vaccine productivity further. We investigated the optimum operating conditions in porcine transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV) vaccine production and the applicability of sodium butyrate (NaBu) as a stimulating agents for the improvement of vaccine productivity. The optimum MOI, infection time, and harvest time for high production of TGEV by swine testicle (ST) cells were found to be 0.0001 pfu/cell, 3 day after cell inoculation, and 24 hpi, respectively. NaBu is known as a histone deacetylase inhibitor that has been widely used for the high expression of recombinant protein using mammalian cells and for the enhancement of virus propagation. So we tried to examine the potential of NaBu as a stimulating agent and to determine the optimum concentration by comparing TGEV titers with different range of NaBu concentration. TGEV titer with 5 mM NaBu was 1.5 times higher than control. Therefore, we concluded that NaBu can be a promising agent for stimulating various vaccine production including TGEV and the optimum NaBu concentration for TGEV production was determined to be 5 mM.
