Purification and characterization of human pancreatic polypeptide expressed in E. coli.


The region of cDNA encoding human pancreatic polypeptide (hPP) was obtained by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and subcloned into an expression vector. The pancreatic polypeptide gene was expressed in Escherichia coli in two versions: as a cleavable fusion protein with IgG-binding synthetic ZZ domains of protein A from Staphylococcus aureus or with the 1-48… (More)
