A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

The NS2B-NS3 serine protease of Saint Louis Encephalitis virus (SLEV), a potential target for antiviral drug design, has been over-expressed as a recombinant His-tag protein in Escherichia coli for future structural determination. The production process resulted in a soluble protease with co-purification of DnaK, a bacterial molecular chaperone already described in E. coli protein expression. Two approaches were tested to remove this specific contaminant. The fusion protein bound to the purification resin was washed with MgATP plus soluble denatured E. coli proteins before elution, but this method proved to be poorly efficient due to a substantial loss of the targeted recombinant protease. After the immobilized metal affinity chromatography step, the use of gel permeation chromatography with addition of arginine in the mobile phase led to effective separation of the native viral protease from the DnaK aggregates. By this way, SLEV DeltaNS2B-NS3pro protease was purified as a functional protein with a purity greater than 90% suitable for crystallization attempts.
