(20 pages) "Use of a derivative of Escherichia coli BL21(DE3) for efficient
productions of three different recombinant proteins", by Jing-Bo Zhao,
Dong-Zhi Wei

Here is the abstract:


Plasmid instability and growth inhibition of plasmid-bearing cells after
induction were encountered when E. coli BL21(DE3) was used as host for the
production of anti-human ovarian carcinoma ? anti-human CD3 single chain
bispecific antibody (AhOC?AhCD3), human soluble B lymphocyte stimulator
fused with thioredoxin (Trx-hsBLyS) and human parathyroid hormone fused with
thioredoxin (Trx-hPTH), respectively. A derivative of BL21(DE3), namely
BLRM(DE3), isolated and showing superiority in AhOC?AhCD3 production in our
previous work, was further used here for more efficient production of the
three different recombinant proteins. By using BLRM(DE3) as host, the
simplified one-stage fermentation process was developed, which was more
laborsaving and yielded AhOC?AhCD3 comparable to that of the traditional
two-stage fermentation process. Also, the plasmid stabilities and production
yields of Trx-hsBLyS and Trx-hPTH were dramatically improved by the
application of BLRM(DE3) instead of BL21(DE3). A high Trx-hsBLyS yield
(about 3.5 g/L) was obtained, which was more than twice as much as that of
the recombinant BL21(DE3) strain. The Trx-hPTH yield was improved from about
700 mg/L to 1 g/L. These results further showed the superiority of BLRM(DE3)
to BL21(DE3) and suggested its effectiveness for other BL21(DE3)/pET
heterologous protein expression systems which encounter similar problems.
