Abstract. An efficient Escherichia coli expression system for the production of a perchloric acid-soluble protein (PSP) has been constructed. Complementary DNA encoding PSP was inserted into an inducible bacterial expression vector pGEX-4T-1. After the plasmid introduced into E. coli was expressed by isopropyl 1-thio-β-D-galactopyranoside (IPTG), the recombinant product was purified by glutathione-Sepharose 4B affinity chromatography. The purified product showed the expected NH2-terminal sequence, but the translation inhibitory activity of this product was 10 times lower compared with that of authentic PSP isolated from rat liver.
