Metrics details. It is used in more than laboratories for laboratory-scale gene expression experiments. However, L. Therefore, the aim of this study was to test whether protein production in L. Lysostaphin, an antibacterial protein mainly against Staphylococcus aureus from S. Staphylolyticus, was used as a model system. Food-grade lysostaphin expression constructs in L. Up-scaling was easy and required no specific effort. Furthermore, we describe a simple and effective way of downstream processing to obtain a highly purified lysostaphin, which has been used for clinical phase I trials.
This is the first example that shows that nisin-regulated gene expression in L. Downstream processing was simple and in a few steps produced a highly purified and active enzyme. Lactococcus lactis is a Gram-positive bacterium that is widely used in food production such as cheese and butter manufacturing [ 1 ].
In the last two decades the physiology and genetics of this bacterium have been thoroughly characterized [ 2 ]. At present several genomes are either completely sequenced or close to completion [ 3 , 4 ]. Furthermore, L. Because of the genetic accessibility and the ease of its handling, a variety of new applications have been developed. Examples are the expression of cytokines and bacterial or viral antigens [ 6 , 7 ], enzymes [ 8 ], membrane proteins [ 9 ] and metabolic transformations [ 10 ].
These studies show that L. One of the crucial developments has been the construction of a food grade [ 11 ] and regulated gene expression system based on the regulation mechanism of the nisin A operon of L. The elements of this regulatory system have been isolated and inserted in a suitable host strain, constituting the powerful regulated gene expression system NICE NI sin- C ontrolled gene E xpression system [ 5 , 13 ].
The NICE system is widely used on laboratory scale for research and for over-expression of genes of interest [ 8 , 9 , 14 ]. However, experience in large scale application and fermentation of the NICE system is very limited. Lysostaphin is a kD antibacterial protein, produced by Staphylococcus simulans biovar. Staphylolyticus, that can hydrolyze the Gly-Gly bonds in the cell wall of the pathogens S. Lysostaphin has been proven to be an effective agent against the widespread hospital infectious agent S.
In the present study we describe for the first time a large-scale L regulated gene expression process for the production of a heterologous protein — lysostaphin — in L. The coding sequence of the lysostaphin gene of S. The obtained construct was verified by nucleotide sequencing. Subsequently, the chloramphenicol-resistance cassette was exchanged for the lacF gene of L. In this plasmid expression of the lysostaphin gene lss is under control of the nisin-inducible nisA promoter.
Furthermore, this plasmid is selected by a food-grade mechanism, i. Lysostaphin, a kD antibacterial protein, was produced in the cytoplasm of the cells. Lysostaphin was isolated, purified see below and its N-terminal amino acid sequence was determined to be Thr-His-Glu-His-Ser-Ala [ 15 ]. This indicates that the correct protein was produced, that no significant intracellular degradation occurred and that the N-terminal formyl-methionine residue was removed.
Plasmid bearing the lysostaphin gene and over expression of this gene. A, plasmid construct for nisin-controlled lysostaphin production. P nisA , nisin-controlled promoter; matLss-2A, coding sequence for mature lysostaphin lacking the first 2 alanine residues; Term. In the development of human and animal pharmaceuticals it is important that the product is guaranteed BSE Bovine Spongiform Encephalomyelitis agent-free. All commercially available pre-formulated media for lactococci [e.
M17 [ 20 ] contain components of animal origin such as meat extract and are possible sources for the BSE agent. Therefore, a new medium based on hydrolysed plant protein and yeast extract was developed. The peptone chosen, was made from soy protein digested with the plant derived proteinase papain. For details of the composition and sterilization of the medium see Methods. Induction of lysostaphin production was carried out at an optical density at nm of about 1 light path 1 cm mid exponential growth phase 0.
After induction, lysostaphin production proceeded for 6 — 8 hours. Figure 2 shows that upon induction, growth of the culture is severely inhibited. This is likely the result of lysostaphin accumulation in the cell that appears to have growth inhibiting properties viable plate counts drop within 20 min after induction 3—4 orders in magnitude. Growth characteristics of 1-L culture. Culture at 1-L scale of L. Lysostaphin production was scaled up from 1-L scale to L scale and eventually L fermentations.
Details of media preparation for the larger scales are described in Methods. Figure 3 shows the growth characteristics of induced cultures of L. All three cultures behaved very similarly, despite the difference in scale of more than 3 orders of magnitude. Four consecutive L production runs were carried out to produce raw material for further down stream processing. The growth characteristics of the four fermentation runs were virtually identical.
Comparison of growth characteristics of 1-L, L and L cultures. Culture of L. As comparison, growth of an uninduced culture at 1-L scale is shown. A downstream processing protocol was designed for the preparation of a pharmaceutical intermediate that could be used for further purification and formulation to carry it into clinical phase I trials.
The basic operations were concentration and washing of the cells, destruction of the cells by homogenization, removal of the cell debris, and capturing of the lysostaphin by chromatography. The fermenter content was concentrated about fold by filtration tangential flow over a 0. The homogenization procedure was repeated three times to ensure complete release of the intracellular lysostaphin produced.
The cell debris was then separated from the intracellular fraction by filtration tangential flow over a 0. The resulting lysostaphin-containing filtrate of about L was stored frozen before loading onto the chromatography column. A cation-exchange chromatography capture step was selected based on the relatively alkaline isoelectric point pH 9.
Optimum lysostaphin binding was found at pH 7. Lysostaphin was eluted using a NaCl step gradient at 0. Finally, the eluate was diluted and all captured lysostaphin was applied to the column at once for an additional recapture step Methods.
The resulting material was ca. Therefore about g lysostaphin had been produced in each L fermentation run. Purification of the overproduced lysostaphin. A, Typical chromatogram of a lysostaphin capture step.
NaCl concentration brown line and absorption at nm blue line are indicated. The lysostaphin fraction F6 is indicated with a black bar. Nisin-regulated gene expression in Lactococcus lactis has been shown to be an effective and multifunctional tool [ 2 , 5 , 7 , 9 ].
With these characteristics, it can be used for food applications, as a source of enzymes, for metabolic transformations and for the production of biologicals. The fact that L. Despite 10 years of laboratory use of the NICE system, we are not aware of any reports that describe the step to large-scale industrial application of this tool.
This paper describes the successful development and scale-up of a process for the production of a heterologous protein using lysostaphin as an example. Lysostaphin is an antibacterial protein from S. Staphylolyticus, that has potential in topical and systemic applications for the treatment of Staphylococcus aureus infections [ 17 — 19 ]. Lysostaphin is a clear example for the benefits of a regulated expression system, since constitutive intracellular lysostaphin expression leads to rapid cell death.
Another advantage of regulated gene expression is that the cells can be pre-grown to a certain cell density before the energetically costly production of a foreign protein is switched on. Furthermore, a food-grade plasmid selection system based on lactose consumption has been used, making the use, detection and tracing of antibiotics unnecessary. This food-grade construct allowed the production of a pharmaceutical intermediate in a cheaper food-grade production plant rather than in a cGMP facility.
Similarly, such a process could be used to make other industrially interesting intermediates such as enzymes for food and bio chemical applications, probiotic preparations, etc. The process described in this paper was first developed at 1-L scale and subsequently transferred to the L and L scale. This scale-up was without problems, without specific calculations and without changes in the available equipment.
Therefore, no oxygen transfer is needed during the fermentation. The only condition that needs to be met is appropriate mixing of the whole culture to ensure evenly distributed nutrients and effective distribution of nisin for the induction of gene expression.
One significant difference exists in the addition of nisin to the culture at different scales. At laboratory scale this addition takes a few seconds, while at L scale it takes 2 — 5 min. Despite the difference in addition times, no adverse effects on the induction process and lysostaphin production were observed.
We carried out four consecutive fermentations at the L scale. The growth of the culture in all four fermentation runs was nearly identical, as was the final yield of lysostaphin after purification about g per batch , indicating the biological and technical robustness of the process.
The down-stream processing shows that L. In the present process three passages for complete destruction of the cells are used. Preliminary results show that two passages may be enough. The cell debris can simply be removed by a second filtration step in the same equipment that is used for the cell separation.
A variety of enzyme purification services are available at Creative Enzymes. We provide purification and quality analysis in small trial scales or large industrial scales from natural resources or production mixtures, for clinical, therapeutic, research, and chemical industries. Our services also cover the preliminary steps, as well as post-purification recovery and analysis. Although initial characterizations of an enzyme in a mixture or sample matrix is practical, such as activity measurement and preliminary quantification, more fundamental knowledge relies on more advanced studies of the enzyme, which can only performed with pure enzyme samples. Pure enzymes also mean easier assays with less interferences. Some analysis methods, such as crystallography, are sensitive to sample purity and give desired results only with the highest samples purity. In large scale production for industrial applications, enzyme purification is directly related to product quality, in addition to regulatory requirements.
Due to advancements in recent years, biocatalysis through isolated enzymes is considered more economical than use of whole cells. Enzymes may be used as a unit operation within a process to generate a desired product, or may be the product of interest. Industrial biological catalysis through enzymes has experienced rapid growth in recent years due to their ability to operate at mild conditions, and exceptional chiral and positional specificity, things that traditional chemical processes lack. Whole cells are typically used when a reaction requires a co-factor. Although co-factors may be generated in vitro , it is typically more cost-effective to use metabolically active cells. Despite their excellent catalytic capabilities, enzymes and their properties must be improved prior to industrial implementation in many cases. Some aspects of enzymes that must be improved prior to implementation are stability, activity, inhibition by reaction products, and selectivity towards non-natural substrates.
Purification and characterization of xylanases from Trichoderma inhamatum. Two xylanases, Xyl I and Xyl II, were purified from the crude extracellular extract of a Trichoderma inhamatum strain cultivated in liquid medium with oat spelts xylan. The xylanases showed specificity for xylan, K m and V max of The hydrolysis of oat spelts xylan released xylobiose, xylotriose, xylotetrose and larger xylooligosaccharides. The enzymes present potential for application in industrial processes that require activity in acid conditions, wide-ranging pH stability, such as for animal feed, or juice and wine industries. Keywords: Enzyme purification; Physico-chemical properties; Trichoderma inhamatum ; Xylanases. Xylan is the predominant hemicellulose found in plant cell walls strongly associated to cellulose microfibrils and the strength of this interaction is inversely related to the degree of substitution of the main chain by side-groups .
