Coexpression, copurification, crystallization and preliminary X-ray analysis of a complex of ARL2-GTP and PDE delta.


The small GTPase ARL2 (from Mus musculus) and an effector protein, the delta subunit of human cGMP phosphodiesterase (hPDE delta), were coexpressed and copurified from Escherichia coli as a stable complex. Coexpression significantly increased the otherwise low yield of PDE delta production in E. coli. The complex, which contains ARL2 in the activated GTP… (More)
