Expression of bovine lactoferrin C-lobe in Rhodococcus erythropolis and its purification and characterization.


A Rhodococcus erythropolis expression system for the bovine lactoferrin C-lobe was constructed. The DNA fragments encoding the BLF C-lobe were amplified and cloned into vector pTip LCH1.2. R. erythropolis carrying the pTip-C-lobe was cultured at 30 degrees C with shaking, and expression of the rBLF C-lobe was induced by adding 1 microg/ml (final… (More)
