Effect of nucleotide sequences directly downstream from the AUG on the expression of bovine somatotropin in E. coli.

We have studied the expression of bovine somatotropin (BSt) to gain more understanding of various factors affecting translation in E. coli. The unmodified cDNA coding for mature bovine somatotropin does not produce significant amounts of BSt in E. coli using a pBR322-derived vector. However, a translation fusion with 16 codons from trpLE in front of BSt… CONTINUE READING
