Characterization of recombinant human chymase expressed in Escherichia coli.

We compared recombinant human chymase expressed in Escherichia coli with human chymase purified from vascular tissues. The recombinant chymase, the structure of which was NH2-enterokinase cleavage site-chymase-COOH, was expressed in Escherichia coli and then was solubilized and renatured. The protein did not have a chymase activity, but gained this activity… CONTINUE READING
