Cloning and expression of Acholeplasma laidlawii membrane acyl proteins in Escherichia coli.

Abstract

Many integral membrane proteins in Acholeplasma laidlawii are enriched in hydrophilic amino acid residues and covalently modified with fatty acids. In order to understand how these proteins are inserted and anchored in the bilayer, we have cloned several of the major A. laidlawii proteins in Escherichia coli: 900 recombinant clones containing 4-kbp DNA… (More)
