NZ2114, a new variant of plectasin, was overexpressed in Pichia pastoris X-33 via pPICZαA for the first time. The total secreted protein of fermentation supernatant reached 2,390 mg/l (29 °C) and 2,310 mg/l (25 °C), and the recombinant NZ2114 (rNZ2114) reached 860 mg/l (29 °C) and 1,309 mg/l (25 °C) at 96 h induction in a 5-l fermentor, respectively.The(More)
A novel specifically targeted antimicrobial peptide (STAMP) that was especially effective against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) was designed by fusing the AgrD1 pheromone to the N-terminal end of plectasin. This STAMP was named Agplectasin, and its gene was synthesized and expressed in Pichia pastoris X-33 via pPICZαA. The highest(More)
The food-borne bacterial gastrointestinal infection is a serious public health threat. Defensins are evolutionarily conserved innate immune components with broad-spectrum antibacterial activity that do not easily induce resistance. AvBD103b, an avian defensin with potent activity against Salmonella enteritidis, was isolated from the stomach contents of the(More)
The infections caused by antibiotic multidrug-resistant bacteria seriously threaten human health. To prevent and cure the infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria, new antimicrobial agents are required. Antimicrobial peptides are ideal therapy candidates for antibiotic-resistant pathogens. However, due to high production costs, novel methods of(More)
The rapid growth of scientific literature calls for automatic and efficient ways to facilitate extracting experimental data on protein phosphorylation. Such information is of great value for biologists in studying cellular processes and diseases such as cancer and diabetes. Existing approaches like RLIMS-P are mainly rule based. The performance lays much(More)
To detect the soybean allergen P34 (Gly m Bd 30K) from soybean products, the full-length cDNA sequence of P34 was synthesized and inserted into the prokaryotic expression vector pET-28a. The P34 protein was expressed in Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3) as an inclusion body under the induction of 0.8 mmol/L isopropyl β-d-1-thiogalactopyranoside. After(More)
The tri-hybrid peptide-LHP7 has the potent activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative as well as fungi, but its mechanism of action has remained elusive. The effluences of LHP7 on the Staphylococcus aureus cell membrane and targets of intracellular action were investigated. LHP7 exhibited an inhibitory effect on the S. aureus growth, similar to those(More)
Enterocin A is a classic IIa bacteriocin isolated firstly from Enterococcus faecium CTC492 with selective antimicrobial activity against Listeria strains. However, the application of enterocin A as an anti-Listeria agent has been limited due to its very low native yield. The present work describes high production of enterocin A through codon optimization(More)
A novel antimicrobial peptide MP1106 was designed based on the parental peptide plectasin with four mutational sites and a high level of expression in Pichia pastoris X-33 via the pPICZαA plasmid was achieved. The concentration of total secreted protein in the fermented supernatant was 2.134 g/l (29 °C), and the concentration of recombinant MP1106 (rMP1106)(More)
