Survivin is a well-known inhibitor-of-apoptosis proteins family member and a promising molecular target for anti-cancer treatment. However, it is widely accepted that survivin is only a "semi-druggable" target and development of survivin-specific small molecule inhibitors has shown to be difficult. In this study, we demonstrated that a histidine-tagged survivin T34A-C84A mutated protein (T34A-C84A-dNSur-His) can be produced using a bacterial recombinant protein expression system [E. Read More

Low binding affinity and reduced complement-dependent cell death efficacy of ofatumumab produced using a plant system (Nicotiana benthamiana L.).

Protein Expr Purif 2019 Jul 14;159:34-41. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Department of Systems Biology, College of Life Science and Biotechnology, Yonsei University, Seoul, 03722, Republic of Korea; Institute of Life Science and Biotechnology, Yonsei University, Seoul, 03722, Republic of Korea. Electronic address:

The plant protein production system is a platform that can not only reduce production costs but also produce monoclonal antibodies that do not have the risk of residual proteins from the host. However, due to the difference between post-translational processes in plants and animals, there may be a modification in the Fab region of the monoclonal antibody produced in the plant; thus, it is necessary to compare the antigen affinity of this antibody with that of the prototype. In this study, ofatumumab, a fully human anti-CD20 IgG1κ monoclonal antibody used for its non-cross resistance to rituximab, was expressed in Nicotiana benthamiana, and its affinities and efficacies were compared with those of native ofatumumab produced from CHO cells.

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 Jun 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.

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.
