Cloning and analysis of expression of synthetic human apolipoprotein А-I genes in Escherichia coli and methylotrophic yeasts Pichia pastoris

Author Affiliations


The expression of synthetic genes of human ApoA-I protein in the methylotrophic yeasts Pichia pastoris X-33 and E. coli Rosetta 2(DE3) cells were studied. It is shown that expression of the ApoA-I genes in yeast cells is accompanied by cell lysis and accumulation of unprocessed ApoA-I protein in the growth medium, which is probably due to the amphiphilic properties of the protein. Expression of ApoA-I gene in E. coli Rosetta ™ (DE3) cells provides the protein of interest with the yield of 50 mg/l. Recombinant polypeptide reacts with antibodies against native human ApoAI and has close molecular weight as native protein.
