Default Engineered solubility tag for solution NMR of proteins.

Engineered solubility tag for solution NMR of proteins.

Engineered solubility tag for solution NMR of proteins.

Protein Sci. 2013 Aug 21;

Authors: Ruschak AM, Rose JD, Coughlin MP, Religa TL

Abstract
The low solubility of many proteins hinders large scale expression and purification as well as biophysical measurements. Here, we devised a general strategy to solubilize a protein by conjugating it at a solvent exposed position to a 6 kDa protein that was re-engineered to be highly soluble. We applied this method to the CARD domain of Apoptosis-associated speck-like protein containing a CARD (ASC), which represents one member of a class of proteins that are notoriously prone to aggregation. Attachment of the tag to a cysteine residue, introduced by site-directed mutagenesis at its self-association interface, improved the solubility of the ASC CARD over 50-fold under physiological conditions. Although it is not possible to use NMR to obtain a high quality 2D correlation spectrum of the wild type domain under physiological conditions, we demonstrate that NMR relaxation parameters of the solubilized variant are sufficiently improved to facilitate virtually any demanding measurement. The method shown here represents a straightforward approach for dramatically increasing protein solubility, enabled by ease of labeling as well as flexibility in tag placement with minimal perturbation to the target.

Segmental isotope labeling of proteins for NMR structural study using a protein S tag for higher expression and solubility
Segmental isotope labeling of proteins for NMR structural study using a protein S tag for higher expression and solubility Abstract A common obstacle to NMR studies of proteins is sample preparation. In many cases, proteins targeted for NMR studies are poorly expressed and/or expressed in insoluble forms. Here, we describe a novel approach to overcome these problems. In the protein S tag-intein (PSTI) technology, two tandem 92-residue N-terminal domains of protein S (PrS2) from Myxococcus xanthus is fused at the N-terminal end of a protein to enhance its expression and solubility. Using...

Overcoming the solubility limit with solubility-enhancement tags: successful applications in biomolecular NMR studies
Overcoming the solubility limit with solubility-enhancement tags: successful applications in biomolecular NMR studies Abstract Although the rapid progress of NMR technology has significantly expanded the range of NMR-trackable systems, preparation of NMR-suitable samples that are highly soluble and stable remains a bottleneck for studies of many biological systems. The application of solubility-enhancement tags (SETs) has been highly effective in overcoming solubility and sample stability issues and has enabled structural studies of important biological systems previously deemed...

J Biomol NMR. 2004 Nov;30(3):283-6 Authors: Howe PW Maximising solubility is a key step in applying solution-state NMR to proteins.

This requires very small amounts of protein, is easy to set up...
