Different enzymatic methods for cleavage of recombinant fusion proteins were compared. To find an efficient cleavage method, five different fusion proteins were produced. The fusion proteins differed only in the linker region between the fusion partner and the desired product, human des(1-3)insulin-like growth factor I. A cleavage study was performed with(More)
Several fusions between the gene for human insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) and the genes for different IgG-binding fragments of staphylococcal protein A were assembled and compared regarding expression, secretion, and purification of the peptide hormone. After IgG affinity purification of the fusion proteins from the growth medium of Staphylococcus(More)
The plasminogen activator from a human melanoma cell line was purified with immunoadsorption as a major step. The cells were cultured in the presence of aprotinin in order to avoid proteolysis. A three-step purification involved adsorption on antibodies to porcine tissue plasminogen activator before chromatographies on arginine-Sepharose and Sephadex G-150.(More)
Tissue plasminogen activator, separated into variants I and II (differing in Mr by 2000-3000), was reduced and [14C]carboxymethylated. Fragments from cleavages with enzymes and cyanogen bromide (CNBr) were separated by reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography and subjected to sequence degradations. All seven CNBr fragments were purified and(More)
A gene encoding a variant (lacking amino acids 6-173) of human tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA), consisting only of the second kringle domain (K2) and the serine protease domain (P), was fused to a DNA segment coding for the signal peptide of staphylococcal protein A and a synthetic gene coding for a protein with ability to bind immunoglobulin G(More)
Tissue plasminogen activator was treated with Sepharose-bound trypsin or chymotrypsin. Trypsin rapidly converted the one-chain activator to the two-chain form. This caused a marked increase in the amidolytic activity, while plasminogen activation initially increased but then decreased again. SDS/polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis in combination with(More)
Coronary artery reocclusion after thrombolysis with human recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator (rt-PA) is related to the short half-life of this agent in plasma. K2P, a mutant of rt-PA lacking the fibronectin fingerlike, epidermal growth factor-like and first kringle domains (amino acids 6 to 173) and having the glycosylation site Asn184(More)
Two different techniques have been used to study the complex formation of recombinant human plasminogen activator inhibitor type-1, PAI-1, with either recombinant human two-chain tissue plasminogen activator, tc tPA (EC, or the tPA deletion variants tc K2P, containing the kringle 2 domain and the proteinase domain, and P, containing only the(More)
Electrophoretic analysis of endoglycosidase-treated tissue plasminogen activator obtained from human melanoma cells showed that the heterogeneity observed for the protein in these preparations is caused by an N-glycosidically linked N-acetyllactosamine type of carbohydrate chain which is present in about 50% of the molecules. An oligomannose type and an(More)
