Abstract

The expression and purification of large recombinant proteins or protein complexes is problematic for some biotechnology laboratories. Indeed, it is often difficult to obtain enough active proteins to perform biological characterization or reach commercialization, when large proteins or protein complexes are expressed in E. coli via the popular T7-based plasmid-driven expression system. There is also an industrial demand to decrease our dependence on plasmid-driven expression, because of its drawbacks, such as: i) the common use of antibiotics to maintain the plasmid, ii) the issue of plasmid copy number, and iii) the risk of overloading the expression system. Despite all these issues, alternative solutions, such as gene integration in the bacterial chromosome, are rarely employed and their advantages are still a matter of debate. Plant plastidial NAD kinases (NADK; ATP:NAD 2′-phosphotransferase, EC 2.7.1.23) are a classic example of proteins with high molecular weight, that are difficult to express and purify with traditional T7-based tech- nology. We therefore compared plasmid-driven and chromosomal-driven expression of the Arabidopsis thaliana NADK2 protein, using a proprietary counter-selection tool, COLIBELT®, that allows scar-free and marker-free chromosomal modifications. Here we show that chromosomal-driven expression allowed recovery of more active NADK2 protein than classic T7 expression systems, as well as better production, thus confirming that expression from one single chromosomal copy is preferable to plasmid-driven expression and might be appealing for both basic and applied research.
