A novel property of the bacterial outer membrane protein T, OmpT, has been discovered. It is active under extreme denaturing conditions. This finding emerged during characterization of a protease associated with the degradation of recombinant proteins expressed as inclusion bodies in Escherichia coli. These inclusion body proteins are stable to proteolytic degradation until they are solubilized by denaturation. The protease that degrades them under denaturing conditions was identified as OmpT… CONTINUE READING
