Expression, lipoylation and structure determination of recombinant pea H-protein in Escherichia coli.


A synthetic gene encoding the entire mature H protein of the glycine decarboxylase complex from pea (Pisum sativum L.) was constructed and expressed in Escherichia coli. The recombinant H protein, which after the induction period constituted more than half of the E. coli protein, was found in a soluble form. Activity measurements and mass-spectrometry… (More)
