Abstract:

Human AChE was cloned and expressed in E. coli under the regulation of the inductible lambda PL and the constitutive deo promoters. A partially purified inactive recombinant protein was recovered from inclusion bodies. After solubilization, folding and oxidation, a protein with enzymatic properties of AChE was obtained. Substitution of the C-terminal cysteine residue by serine enhanced the recovery of enzymatically active AChE. The reconstituted enzyme was indistinguishable from native AChE isolated from erythrocytes in terms of substrate specificity and inhibitor selectivity....
