Couple of pertinent papers are:
'Construction and characterization of a set of E. coli strains deficient in
all known loci affecting the proteolytic stability of secreted recombinant
proteins.' Meerman & Georgiou (1994). Bio/Technology 12: 1107. (May be the
one Duncan referred to), and
'Minimizing proteolysis in Escherichia coli: genetic solutions. Gottesman
(1990). Meth. Enzymol. 185: 119.
I have succcessfully used some of Dr. Gottesman's strains (which she makes
available on request), especially SG12036 and SG21173.
