Gene expression system in green sulfur bacteria by conjugative plasmid transfer.

Gene transfer and expression systems in green sulfur bacteria were established by bacterial conjugation with Escherichia coli. Conjugative plasmid transfer from E. coli S17-1 to a thermophilic green sulfur bacterium, Chlorobaculum tepidum (formerly Chlorobium tepidum) WT2321, was executed with RSF1010-derivative broad-host-range plasmids, named pDSK5191 and pDSK5192, that confer erythromycin and streptomycin/spectinomycin resistance, respectively. The transconjugants harboring these plasmids were reproducibly obtained at a frequency of approximately 10(-5) by selection with erythromycin and a combination of streptomycin and spectinomycin, respectively. These plasmids were stably maintained in C. tepidum cells in the presence of these antibiotics. The plasmid transfer to another mesophilic green sulfur bacterium, C. limnaeum (formerly Chlorobium phaeobacteroides) RK-j-1, was also achieved with pDSK5192. The expression plasmid based on pDSK5191 was constructed by incorporating the upstream and downstream regions of the pscAB gene cluster on the C. tepidum genome, since these regions were considered to include a constitutive promoter and a ρ-independent terminator, respectively. Growth defections of the ∆cycA and ∆soxB mutants were completely rescued after introduction of pDSK5191-cycA and -soxB that were designed to express their complementary genes. On the other hand, pDSK5191-6xhis-pscAB, which incorporated the gene cluster of 6xhis-pscA and pscB, produced approximately four times more of the photosynthetic reaction center complex with His-tagged PscA as compared with that expressed in the genome by the conventional natural transformation method. This expression system, based on conjugative plasmid, would be applicable to general molecular biological studies of green sulfur bacteria.

Hyperthermia-induced apoptosis in Tca8113 cells is inhibited by heat shock protein 27 through blocking phospholipid scramblase 3 phosphorylation.

Hyperthermia induces tumour cell apoptosis through the mitochondrial apoptotic pathway; however, the signal transduction mechanism underlying this process still needs to be fully elucidated. Phospholipid scramblase 3 (PLS3), a target of protein kinase C-delta (PKC-delta), resides in mitochondria and plays pivotal roles in regulating apoptotic response. Activated PLS3 facilitates cardiolipin (CL) translocation from the mitochondrial inner membrane to the outer leaflet of the mitochondrial outer membrane and triggers apoptosis.

TraA and its N-terminal relaxase domain of the Gram-positive plasmid pIP501 show specific oriT binding and behave as dimers in solution.

TraA is the DNA relaxase encoded by the broad-host-range Grampositive plasmid pIP501. It is the second relaxase to be characterized from plasmids originating from Gram-positive organisms. Full-length TraA (654 amino acids) and the N-terminal domain (246 amino acids), termed TraAN246, were expressed as 6xHis-tagged fusions and purified. Small-angle X-ray scattering and chemical cross-linking proved that TraAN246 and TraA form dimers in solution. Both proteins revealed oriTpIP501 (origin of transfer of pIP501) cleavage activity on supercoiled plasmid DNA in vitro. oriT binding was demonstrated by electrophoretic mobility shift assays. Radiolabelled oligonucleotides covering different parts of oriTpIP501 were subjected to binding with TraA and TraAN246. The KD of the protein-DNA complex encompassing the inverted repeat, the nick site and an additional 7 bases was found to be 55 nM for TraA and 26 nM for TraAN246. The unfolding of both protein constructs was monitored by measuring the change in the CD signal at 220 nm upon temperature change. The unfolding transition of both proteins occurred at approx. 42 degrees C. CD spectra measured at 20 degrees C showed 30% a-helix and 13% b-sheet for TraA, and 27% alpha-helix and 18% beta-sheet content for the truncated protein. Upon DNA binding, an enhanced secondary structure content and increased thermal stability were observed for the TraAN246 protein, suggesting an induced-fit mechanism for the formation of the specific relaxase-oriT complex.

Overexpression in Escherichia coli and affinity purification of chick kidney ferredoxin.

Vertebrate ferredoxins are 12-14-kDa iron-sulfur proteins, some of which transfer electrons to mitochondrial cytochrome P450s. The function of many of these cytochrome P450s is to catalyze stereospecific hydroxylation of endogenous steroids. As part of our interest in the kidney mitochondrial 1 alpha-hydroxylation of 25-hydroxyvitamin D3, we have constructed an expression plasmid coding for a fusion protein containing the chick kidney ferredoxin. We subcloned chick kidney ferredoxin cDNA, obtained from our vitamin D-deficient chick kidney library by polymerase chain reaction (Brandt, M. E., Gabrik, A. H., and Vickery, L. E. (1991) Gene (Amst.) 97, 113-117) into Qiagen's pQE9, which contains an N-terminal 6xHis tag (peptide sequence for 6 adjacent histidines present in the recombinant proteins). The coding sequence was preceded by a factor Xa cleavage site. The resulting plasmid, pQTcFdx, was overexpressed in Escherichia coli, and the soluble fusion protein was purified from the cell lysate in one step by Ni(II)-nitrilotriacetic acid-agarose chromatography. We obtained 7-10 mg of greater than 99% homogeneous fusion protein from a 1-liter culture and 4-6 mg of mature ferredoxin cleaved by factor Xa. The fusion protein possessed an absorption spectrum and an electron paramagnetic resonance spectrum quantitatively indistinguishable from those published for ferredoxin purified from adrenal glands and placenta or expressed in E. coli with another vector. The fusion protein was active in supporting the 1 alpha-hydroxylation of 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 in a reconstitution assay of a solubilized, partially purified preparation of cytochrome P450 from vitamin D-deficient chick kidney. We conclude that the procedure described here is an efficient way to produce and purify vertebrate ferredoxin; the [2Fe-2S] cofactor is assembled in vivo and effectively incorporated into the fusion protein in E. coli; slight alterations at the N terminus do not alter incorporation of the [2Fe-2S] cofactor or the biological activity of ferredoxin, and post-translational modifications, such as phosphorylation, are not an absolute requirement for ferredoxin electron transporting activity. The recombinant ferredoxin can be used for physical studies and other structure-function studies.
