Cell-free soluble expression of the membrane protein PsbS.

Protein Expr Purif 2019 Feb 18. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Dept. of Solid-State NMR, Leiden Institute of Chemistry, Leiden University, Einsteinweg 55, 2300RA, Leiden, the Netherlands. Electronic address:

Photosystem II subunit S (PsbS) is a membrane protein that plays an exclusive role in non-photochemical quenching for photoprotection of plants under high-light conditions. The activation mechanism of PsbS and its pH-induced conformational changes are currently unknown. For structural investigation of PsbS, effective synthesis of PsbS with selective isotope or electron-spin labels or non-natural amino acids incorporated would be a great asset. Read More

Recombinant protein purification in baculovirus-infected rachiplusia nu larvae: An approach towards a rational design of downstream processing strategies based on chromatographic behavior of proteins.

Protein Expr Purif 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Facultad de Farmacia y Bioquímica, Cátedra de Biotecnología, Universidad de Buenos Aires, Junín 956, 1113, Buenos Aires, Argentina; Instituto de Nanobiotecnología (NANOBIOTEC), CONICET-Universidad de Buenos Aires, Junín 956, 1113, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Electronic address:

Expression of recombinant proteins with baculovirus-infected insect larvae is a scarcely investigated alternative in comparison to that in insect cell lines, a system with growing popularity in the field of biotechnology. The aim of this study was to investigate the chromatographic behavior and physicochemical properties of the proteome of Rachiplusia nu larvae infected with recombinant Autographa californica multiple nucleopolyhedrosis virus (AcMNPV), in order to design rational purification strategies for the expression of heterologous proteins in this very complex and little-known system, based on the differential absorption between target recombinant proteins and the system's contaminating ones. Two-dimensional (2D) gel electrophoresis showed differences in the protein patterns of infected and non-infected larvae. Read More

Expression and active testing of VP7 from GCRV (Grass carp reovirus) fused with cholera toxin B subunit in rice calli.

Protein Expr Purif 2019 Feb 10;158:1-8. Epub 2019 Feb 10.

School of Agriculture, Ludong University, Yantai, 264025, China.

Grass carp reovirus (GCRV) is one of the most serious pathogens threatening grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idellus) production and results in high mortality in China. VP7 from GCRV is involved in viral infection and could be suitable for developing vaccines for the control of GCRV infection. To obtain a genetically engineered vaccine and a plant-based oral vaccine and to evaluate their immune efficacy as an oral vaccine against GCRV, cholera toxin B subunit (CTB) of Vibrio cholerae fused to VP7 (CTB-VP7) was transformed into BL21(DE3) for expression.

Review of lactose-driven auto-induction expression of isotope-labelled proteins.

Department of Chemistry, Trent University, 1600 West Bank Drive, Peterborough, ON, K9J 0G2, Canada. Electronic address:

NMR is an important method in the structural and functional characterization of proteins, but such experiments typically require isotopic labelling because of the low natural abundance of the nuclei of interest. Isotope-labelled protein for NMR experiments is typically obtained from IPTG-inducible bacterial expression systems in a minimal media that contains labelled carbon or nitrogen sources. Optimization of expression conditions is crucial yet challenging; large amounts of labelled protein are desired, yet protein yields are lower in minimal media, while the labelled precursors are expensive.

To optimize the expression conditions for human lactoferrin production, we have constructed the transgenic chlorella with human lactoferrin named as GTD8A1-HLF, the original chlorella was separated from Gurbantunggut Desert in Xinjiang China. To further improve the production of human lactoferrin, a sequential methodology was used to optimize human lactoferrin production by GTD8A1-HLF. First, a screening trial using a Plackett-Burman design was done, and variables with statistically significant effects on human lactoferrin bio-production were identified. Read More

Simultaneous chloroplast, mitochondria isolation and mitochondrial protein preparation for two-dimensional electrophoresis analysis of Ice plant leaves under well watered and water-deficit stressed treatments.

Protein Expr Purif 2019 Mar 1;155:86-94. Epub 2018 Dec 1.

Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, MS 200, University of Nevada, Reno, NV, 89557, USA.

This paper presents a simultaneous isolation of pure, intact chloroplasts and mitochondria from mature leaves of Ice plant (Mesembryanthemum crystallinum) and mitochondrial protein preparation for two-dimensional electrophoresis (2DE) analysis under well watered and water -deficit stressed treatments. The washed chloroplasts and mitochondria were purified with Percoll gradients prepared using a Master flex R pump. The chloroplast and mitochondrial proteins were extracted in lysis buffer containing a protease inhibitor mix supplemented with 1 μM Leupeptin and 1 μM E64, followed by precipitation with ice-cold acetone.

Test bacterial inclusion body for activity prior to start denaturing and refolding processes to obtain active eukaryotic proteins.

Protein Expr Purif 2019 Feb 31;154:147-151. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Medical Cellular and Molecular Research Center, Golestan University of Medical Sciences, Gorgan, Iran.

One of a major drawbacks correlated with expressing antibody fragments in bacterial cells is insolubility, which is often regarded as an obstacle in obtaining active molecules. Recombinant proteins aggregated as inclusion bodies within bacterial cells are thought to be unfolded or misfolded, and therefore inactive. So, denaturing and refolding strategies, which are laborious and sometime inefficient, are used to obtain correctly-folded active proteins. Read More
