The gene encoding glucose oxidase (GOD) from Aspergillus niger was expressed as a secretory product in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Six consecutive histidine residues were fused to the C-terminus of GOD to facilitate purification. The recombinant GOD-His(6) secreted by S. cerevisiae migrated as a broad diffuse band on SDS-PAGE, with an apparent(More)
The genes encoding carboxypeptidase Y (CPY) and CPY propeptide (CPYPR) from Saccharomyces cerevisiae were cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli. Six consecutive histidine residues were fused to the C-terminus of the CPYPR for facilitated purification. High-level expression of CPY and CPYPR-His(6) was achieved but most of the expressed proteins were(More)
The genes encoding pro-carboxypeptidase Ys (pro-CPYs) from Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Hansenula polymorpha were cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli. Most of the expressed pro-CPY was present in the form of inclusion bodies, accounting for about 35% of the total cellular protein. The inclusion bodies solubilized in 6 M guanidinum chloride were(More)
We recently reported that elevations in the intracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) enhance low-voltage-activated, T-type, Ca2+ channel activity via Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII). Here, we document CaMKII activity in bovine adrenal glomerulosa (AG) cells and assess the importance of CaMKII in depolarization-induced Ca2+ signaling.(More)
Genetic human papillomavirus type 16 L1 (HPV16 L1) has been widely studied for cervical cancer vaccine development. For the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) screening of these vaccines, HPV16 L1 protein, which is required as a coating protein, has previously been expressed from costly and laborious recombinant baculovirus-infected insect cells. For(More)
Fed-batch cultures of Hansenula polymorpha were studied to develop an efficient biosystem to produce recombinant human serum albumin (HSA). To comply with this purpose, we used high purity oxygen supplying strategy to increase viable cell density in a bioreactor and enhance the production of target protein. A mutant strain, H. polymorpha GOT7 was utilized(More)
The carboxypeptidase Y (CPY) propeptide from Saccharomyces cerevisiae was developed as a fusion partner for the efficient expression of small polypeptides in Escherichia coli. Six consecutive histidine residues (6xHis) were fused to the N-terminus of the CPY propeptide for the facilitated purification of fusion proteins using immobilized metal ion affinity(More)
