High-level expression and secondary structure analysis of the bovine mature prion protein
【摘要】：正 By using the recombinant DNA technology, the gene of the bovine mature prion protein bPrPcL) has been cloned into pET30a and the resulting plasmid has been expressed in E.coli BL21(DE3). After solubilizing in 8 mol/L urea, the expression product was purified by cation ion exchange chromatography. The purified product was refolded by dilution and the recovery was about 15%. Analysis of mass spectrum, circular dichroism (CD) spectrum and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrum demonstrate that the molecular weight of the bPrPcL is 23 630 u, the bPrPcL has a high α-helix content (36.1%) and low (3-sheet content (11.9%).
