Recombinant expression and purification of human androgen receptor in a baculovirus system.


A full-length human androgen receptor (hAR) cDNA was used to produce recombinant baculovirus. Spodoptera frugiperda (Sf9) cells infected with this virus expressed protein with an N-terminal hexahistidine tag (His(6)-hAR) in soluble and insoluble forms. The soluble cytosolic His(6)-hAR demonstrated similar association and dissociation half-times for… (More)
