Single Protein Production in Living Cells Facilitated by an mRNA Interferase

We designed a single-protein production (SPP) system in living E. coli cells that exploits the unique properties of MazF, a bacterial toxin that is an ssRNA- and ACA-specific endoribonuclease. In effect, MazF functions as an “mRNA interferase,” because it efficiently and selectively degrades all cellular mRNAs in vivo, resulting in a precipitous drop in total protein synthesis. Concomitant expression of MazF and a target gene engineered to encode an ACA-less mRNA results in sustained and high-level (up to 90%) target expression in the virtual absence of background cellular protein synthesis. Remarkably, target synthesis continues for at least 4 days, indicating that cells retain transcriptional and translational competence despite their growth arrest. SPP technology works well for E. coli (soluble and membrane), yeast, and human proteins. This expression system enables unparalleled signal to noise ratios that should dramatically simplify structural and functional studies of previously intractable but biologically important proteins.

Suppression of isotope scrambling in cell-free protein synthesis by broadband inhibition of PLP enymes for selective 15N-labelling and production of perdeuterated proteins in H2O
Suppression of isotope scrambling in cell-free protein synthesis by broadband inhibition of PLP enymes for selective 15N-labelling and production of perdeuterated proteins in H2O Abstract Selectively isotope labelled protein samples can be prepared in vivo or in vitro from selectively labelled amino acids but, in many cases, metabolic conversions between different amino acids result in isotope scrambling. The best results are obtained by cell-free protein synthesis, where metabolic enzymes are generally less active, but isotope scrambling can never be suppressed completely. We show that...

Suppression of phospholipid biosynthesis by cerulenin in the condensed Single-Protein-Production (cSPP) system
Suppression of phospholipid biosynthesis by cerulenin in the condensed Single-Protein-Production (cSPP) system Abstract Using the single-protein-production (SPP) system, a protein of interest can be exclusively produced in high yield from its ACA-less gene in Escherichia coli expressing MazF, an ACA-specific mRNA interferase. It is thus feasible to study a membrane protein by solid-state NMR (SSNMR) directly in natural membrane fractions. In developing isotope-enrichment methods, we observed that 13C was also incorporated into phospholipids, generating spurious signals in SSNMR spectra....

Efficient protein production method for NMR using soluble protein tags with cold shoc
Efficient protein production method for NMR using soluble protein tags with cold shock expression vector Abstract The E. coli protein expression system is one of the most useful methods employed for NMR sample preparation. However, the production of some recombinant proteins in E. coli is often hampered by difficulties such as low expression level and low solubility. To address these problems, a modified cold-shock expression system containing a glutathione S-transferase (GST) tag, the pCold-GST system, was investigated. The pCold-GST system successfully expressed 9 out of 10 proteins...
