TY - JOUR. T1 - Hemoglobin transition in erythrocytes of developing chick. Studies with cell-free protein-synthesizing systems. AU - Henderson, A. Burl. AU - Lee, John C.. PY - 1976. Y1 - 1976. N2 - Cell-free hemoglobin-synthesizing systems from erythrocytes of 4- and 17-day chick embryos have been developed. These systems have been used to investigate possible structural and functional differences in factors involved in protein synthesis obtained from these different developmental stages. Each cell-free system consists of three major cellular fractions i.e., the S-100 supernatant, the salt-washed ribosomes, and the 0.5 m KCl ribosomal wash. When the ribosomal wash fraction from one developmental stage is included in a cell-free system containing ribosomes and S-100 supernatant from the other developmental stage, a drastic reduction in the kinetics of [3H]leucine incorporation into globin products is observed, when compared to the homologous control cell-free systems. A similar depression of the ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Characterization of cell free synthesis of collagen by lung polysomes in a heterologous system. AU - Collins, J. F.. AU - Crystal, Ronald. PY - 1975/12/1. Y1 - 1975/12/1. N2 - In normal lung growth, post pneumonectomy lung growth, and in possibly several lung disorders, there are marked alterations in the density of collagen and changes in the rate of synthesis of collagen relative to the synthesis of other lung proteins. To provide a technology to begin to understand these changes at the molecular level, polysomes were prepared from rabbit lung and translated in a heterologous cell free system including rabbit reticulocyte 0.5 m KCl ribosomal wash fraction and liver tRNA. Collagen was shown in the cell free product by collagenase sensitivity, hydroxylation of incorporated proline by peptidyl prolyl hydroxylase, agarose gel chromatography, and sodium dodecyl sulfate acrylamide gel electrophoresis. The cell free system was optimized with respect to K+, Mg2+, amino acids, and ...

Engineered antibodies are key players in therapy, diagnostics and research. In addition to full size immunoglobulin gamma (IgG) molecules, smaller formats of recombinant antibodies, such as single-chain variable fragments (scFv) and antigen binding fragments (Fab), have emerged as promising alternatives since they possess different advantageous properties. Cell-based production technologies of antibodies and antibody fragments are well-established, allowing researchers to design and manufacture highly specific molecular recognition tools. However, as these technologies are accompanied by the drawbacks of being rather time-consuming and cost-intensive, efficient and powerful cell-free protein synthesis systems have been developed over the last decade as alternatives. So far, prokaryotic cell-free systems have been the focus of interest. Recently, eukaryotic in vitro translation systems have enriched the antibody production pipeline, as these systems are able to mimic the natural pathway of antibody
The primary objective of our work was to find a practical solution to the limitations of GPCR expression imposed by heterologous systems. Although relatively large amounts of membrane proteins can be potentially produced in cellular systems, usually a small proportion becomes associated to the membrane [22]. Particularly, GPCRs are confronted to a complex array of trafficking signals, post-translational modifications, and transport systems before reaching the final destination, the plasma membrane. In addition, differences in the lipid bilayer composition and maximal tolerated membrane protein loads can additionally affect the correct insertion, folding, and yield of recombinant GPCRs.. In order to overcome these difficulties, we developed a cell-free expression system supplemented with planar membranes [15]. Although, the approach excels in expressing soluble membrane protein products, it fails to produce functional GPCRs. We favor the absence of a functional translocon machinery embedded in ...
Multicopper oxidases (MCOs) are broadly distributed in all kingdoms of life and perform a variety of important oxidative reactions. These enzymes have potential biotechnological applications; however, the applications are impeded by low expression yields in traditional recombinant hosts, solubility issues, and poor copper cofactor assembly. As an alternative to traditional recombinant protein expression, we show the ability to use cell-free protein synthesis (CFPS) to produce complex MCO proteins with high soluble titers. Specifically, we report the production of MCOs in an Escherichia coli-based cell-free transcription-translation system. Total yields as high as 1.2 mg mL-1 were observed after a 20-h batch reaction. More than 95% of the protein was soluble and activity was obtained by simple post-CFPS addition of copper ions in the form of CuSO4. Scale-up reactions were achieved from 15 to 100 μL without a decrease in productivity and solubility. CFPS titers were higher than in vivo expression ...
Malaria is a major public health burden and developing the next generation of anti-malarials is vital to control the spread of disease. Protein arrays, which can investigate binding of many proteins to various probes simultaneously, are becoming an important tool in the drug development process. Results from protein arrays can be affected by the sample purity, as high amounts of protein from the translation system can mask positive interactions on the arrays. The results would be improved by separating the malarial protein from the translation system proteins. However, purifying the hundreds of proteins for arrays using traditional affinity fusion tags is extremely time-consuming. To reduce the time required to produce protein samples at the desired purity, enrichment schemes were developed that covalently attach a small molecule to the proteins in the wheat cell-free expression system. After translation, separation matrices with high specificity for the small molecule modification were added to ...

The M species (medium sized) dsRNA (1.1-1.4 x 10(6) daltons) isolated from a toxin-producing yeast killer strain (K+R+) and three related, defective interfering (suppressive) S species dsRNAs of the yeast killer-associated cytoplasmic multicomponent viral-like particle system were analyzed by in vitro translation in a wheat germ cell-free protein synthesis system. Heat-denatured M species dsRNA programmed the synthesis of two major polypeptides, M-P1 (32,000 daltons) and M-P2 (30,000 daltons). M-P1 has been shown by the criteria of proteolytic peptide mapping and cross-antigenicity to contain ihe 12,000 dalton polypeptide corresponding to the in vivo produced killer toxin, thus establishing thiat it is the M species dsRNA which carries the toxin gene. An M species dsRNA obtained from a neutral strain (K-R+) also programmed the in vitro synthesis of a polypeptide identical in molecular weight to M-P1, thus indicating that the cytoplasmic determinant of the mutant neutral phenotype is either a simple

Cell-free protein synthesis is a powerful method to explore the structure and function of membrane proteins and to analyze the targeting and translocation of proteins across the ER membrane. Developing a cell-free system based on cultured cells for the synthesis of membrane proteins could provide a highly reproducible alternative to the use of tissues from living animals. We isolated Sf21 microsomes from cultured insect cells by a simplified isolation procedure and evaluated the performance of the translocation system in combination with a cell-free translation system originating from the same source. The isolated microsomes contained the basic translocation machinery for polytopic membrane proteins including SRP-dependent targeting components, translocation channel (translocon)-dependent translocation, and the apparatus for signal peptide cleavage and N-linked glycosylation. A transporter protein synthesized with the cell-free system could be functionally reconstituted into a lipid bilayer. In addition

Genomics-based target identification and screening using cell free systems has been the dominating principle in cancer drug discovery during the recent decade [6]. As an alternative to this approach the use of phenotype-cell-based screening may provide some distinct advantages [35]. We here performed a conditional screen with the aim of identifying compounds that are cytotoxic to multidrug resistant myeloma cells. A chemically diverse compound library was used for this purpose. The screening hit RH02104/VLX40 was the only compound that fulfilled the pre-determined criteria of a SI less than 50% in myeloma 8226/Dox40 and more than 50% in parental RPMI 8226 cells. In validation experiments VLX40 was found the difference was, albeit statistically significant, small. It can not be excluded that subtle differences in drug uptake and proliferation characteristics of the cell lines, not related to drug transporters, could contribute to the difference observed.. For exploration of mechanisms of action ...

Assay of cell-free DNA in blood offers an approach to assessment of tumor DNA. We sought to determine whether Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) DNA in cell-free blood is also a good surrogate for the presence of tumor DNA in children with Hodgkin lymphoma, as it is in adults, and whether it correlates with pediatric outcomes. Pediatric patients enrolled in a Childrens Oncology Group trial (AHOD0031) were studied at baseline and at 8 days after the initiation of treatment. At baseline, EBV DNA in cell-free blood correlated with the presence of EBV in tumor, and EBV DNA 8 days after the initiation of therapy predicted inferior event-free survival ...

Areas covered: We review the advantages and disadvantages of different cell-free protein arrays, with an emphasis on the methods ...
Autori: Bogdan Bancia Editorial: 2009.. Rezumat:. The three-dimensional structure determination of proteins represents an important step towards understanding their biological function and thus their roles in living organisms. Using a combination of multidimensional NMR techniques three different biomolecules were analyzed in the present study, E. coli peptidyl - prolyl cis-trans isomerase PpiB, proinsulin connecting peptide and DnaG-C. 15N-HSQC spectra were recorded of PpiB which had been expressed without further purification in a cell-free expression system with amino acid selective isotope labelling. Comparison of spectra before and after ultrafiltration indicated that labelled metabolic by-products are of low molecular weight. Therefore, the labelled protein signals are easily distinguished from those of metabolites. The structure analysis of the proinsulin connecting peptide included the assignment of 1H, 13C and 15N NMR resonances using 2D NMR, measurement of T1 (1H) relaxation times and ...
Cytokinesis, when two daughter cells are physically separated from one another, is the final stage of cell division. How dividing cells signal where the cleavage furrow should be during cytokinesis has long interested cell biologists. A major stumbling block to probing the underlying mechanisms has been the lack of a cell-free and fully controllable experimental system.. In a new paper appearing in Science (10 October 2014, Science 346 (6206):244-247), Phuong Nguyen and Aaron Groen, along with their colleagues at Harvard Medical School (Boston, MA), have reconstituted the organization of cytokinesis signaling outside living cells, using a the cell-free Xenopus system. The authors examined the biophysics involved in spatial signaling during cytokinesis using powerful imaging techniques, taking advantage of microtubule cytokinesis zones that they assembled on the surface of a microscope slide. These cytokinesis zones are relatively large (~20 mm) in the large Xenopus egg (c. 10x larger than ...

The T7 bacteriophage RNA polymerase (T7 RNAP) serves as a model for understanding RNA synthesis, as a tool for protein expression, and as an actuator for synthetic gene circuit design in bacterial cells and cell-free extract. T7 RNAP is an attractive tool for orthogonal protein expression in bacteria owing to its compact single subunit structure and orthogonal promoter specificity. Understanding the mechanisms underlying T7 RNAP regulation is important to the design of engineered T7-based transcription factors, which can be used in gene circuit design. To explore regulatory mechanisms for T7 RNAP-driven expression, we developed a rapid and cost-effective method to characterize engineered T7-based transcription factors using cell-free protein synthesis and an acoustic liquid handler. Using this method, we investigated the effects of the tetracycline operators proximity to the T7 promoter on the regulation of T7 RNAP-driven expression. Our results reveal a mechanism for regulation that functions ...
The 5´terminal m7G cap present on most eukaryotic mRNAs promotes translation in vitro at the initiation level. For most RNAs, elimination of the cap structure causes a loss of stability, especially against exonuclease degradation, and a decrease in the formation of the initiation complex of mRNAs for protein synthesis. Certain prokaryotic mRNAs containing a 5´ terminal cap structure are translated as efficiently as or more efficiently than eukaryotic mRNAs in a eukaryotic cell-free protein synthesizing system. Also a cap requirement has been observed for splicing eukaryotic substrate RNAs. A method for efficient in vitro synthesis of capped RNA using E. coli RNA polymerase primed with m7G(5´ )ppp(5´ )G or m7G(5´ )ppp(5´ )A has been developed by Contreas et al.
