High level expression of soluble angiogenin in Escherichia coli.

Human angiogenin was genetically engineered and contained the E. coli Omp A signal sequence for secreting soluble angiogenin to the periplasm under tac promoter control. The angiogenin sequence was encoded in a single gene and expressed as a 14.4 kilodalton soluble protein in E. coli. It was purified by CM-Sepharose ion-exchange chromatography and by a… (More)
