About half a century after antibiotics discovery, multi-antibiotic-resistant bacteria posed a new challenge to medicine. Attempts to discover new antibiotics have drawn the attention to Antimicrobial Peptides (AMPs). The rapid growth, besides its known genetic and manipulation systems, makes E.coli the preferred host system for production of recombinant proteins on an industrial scale. To produce AMPs in E.coli, the application of fusion-tags with the aim of stability, solubility, and prevention of antimicrobial activity is one of the best practices in this regard. In this study, we presented two different expression systems for the production of PR-39 in E. coli; one in fusion with Intein-Chitin binding domain (CBD) and another in fusion with SUMO accompanied by polyhistidine affinity tag. Both were cloned in the NdeI-XhoI sites of pET-17b and transformed to E. coli BL21 (DE3) pLysS. Recombinant bacteria were cultured and induced with 0.4 mM IPTG at 30 °C. Expression and purification of target proteins were confirmed by Tricine- SDS-PAGE and dot blot analysis. Recovery of 250 μg PR-39/L from SUMO fusion system and 280 μg PR-39/L from the intein fusion system was achieved.

Strains of ESCHERICHIA COLI that are a subgroup of SHIGA-TOXIGENIC ESCHERICHIA COLI. They cause non-bloody and bloody DIARRHEA; HEMOLYTIC UREMIC SYNDROME; and hemorrhagic COLITIS. An important member of this subgroup is ESCHERICHIA COLI O157-H7.
Strains of Escherichia coli that possess virulence traits which allow them to invade, colonize, and induce disease in tissues outside of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. They are a cause of URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS (UROPATHOGENIC ESCHERICHIA COLI); neonatal MENINGITIS; SEPSIS; PNEUMONIA; and SURGICAL WOUND INFECTION.
A class of toxins that inhibit protein synthesis by blocking the interaction of ribosomal RNA; (RNA, RIBOSOMAL) with PEPTIDE ELONGATION FACTORS. They include SHIGA TOXIN which is produced by SHIGELLA DYSENTERIAE and a variety of shiga-like toxins that are produced by pathologic strains of ESCHERICHIA COLI such as ESCHERICHIA COLI O157.
An enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli of the O subfamily that can cause severe FOODBORNE DISEASE. The H4 serotype strain produces SHIGA TOXINS and has been linked to human disease outbreaks, including some cases of HEMOLYTIC-UREMIC SYNDROME, resulting from contamination of foods by feces containing E. coli O104.
A species of gram-negative, rod-shaped bacteria belonging to the K serogroup of ESCHERICHIA COLI. It lives as a harmless inhabitant of the human LARGE INTESTINE and is widely used in medical and GENETIC RESEARCH.
