The proteome profile of Escherichia coli BL21(DE3) generated in response to heat shock stress was analyzed by two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE), wherein we identified a FKBP-type peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerse (PPIases), SlyD, as a stress-responsive (i.e. aggregation-resistant) protein. Even under an imposed severe stress condition where 29 out of(More)
The Escherichia coli proteome response to the stressor GdnHCl was analyzed through 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE). We identified PotD (spermidine/putrescine-binding periplasmic protein) and Crr [glucose-specific phosphotransferase (PTS) enzyme IIA component] as a stress-responsive protein. Even under a stress situation where the total number of(More)
Through two-dimensional electrophoresis, Escherichia coli proteome response to a protein denaturant, guanidine hydrochloride, was analyzed and elongation factor Ts (Tsf) detected as a stress-induced protein. Many host proteins aggregated, or their synthesis levels decreased significantly under conditions of protein denaturation as 34 out of 699 soluble(More)
Since the use of solubility enhancer proteins is one of the effective methods to produce active recombinant proteins within Escherichia coli, the development of a novel fusion expression partner that can be applied to various aggregation-prone proteins is of crucial importance. In our previous work, two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE) was employed to(More)
Using 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis, the Escherichia coli proteome response to a heat-shock stress was analyzed and a 1.6-fold increase of malate dehydrogenase was observed even under the heat-shock condition where the total number of soluble proteins decreased by about 5%. We subsequently demonstrated that, as an N-terminus fusion expression partner,(More)
Ferritin-based nanoprobe (FBNP) hydrogel was synthesized through a simple one-step copolymerization and used as a diagnostic assay platform to solve the traditional problems [ 1–6 ] (i.e., low sensitivity and specifi city, infeasibility of multiplex assays, random orientation of probes, probe instability, uncontrollable probe loading, etc.) of ELISA(More)
BACKGROUND The most efficient method for enhancing solubility of recombinant proteins appears to use the fusion expression partners. Although commercial fusion partners including maltose binding protein and glutathione-S-transferase have shown good performance in enhancing the solubility, they cannot be used for the proprietory production of commercially(More)
As a fusion partner to express aggregation-prone heterologous proteins, we investigated the efficacy of Escherichia coli phosphoglycerate kinase (ePGK) that consists of two functional domains (N- and C-domain) and reportedly has a high structural stability. When the full-length ePGK (F-ePGK) was used as a fusion partner, the solubility of the heterologous(More)
We found Escherichia coli proteins, elongation factor Ts (Tsf), and malate dehydrogenase (Mdh) that can exist in the form of native and soluble proteins even under stress situation such as heat shock and protein denaturing condition. To examine their property as solubility enhancers, aggregation-prone Mycoplasma arginine deiminase (mADI), which has been(More)
We previously reported that under the stress condition caused by the addition of 2-hydroxyethyl disulfide, a thiol-specific oxidant, to growing cultures of Escherichia coli BL21(DE3), a population of stress-responsive proteins [peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase B (PpiB), bacterioferritin (Bfr), putative HTH-type transcriptional regulator yjdC (YjdC),(More)
