A method was developed to increase the recovery of recombinant human stem cell factor (rhSCF) from inclusion bodies using high performance hydrophobic interaction chromatography (HPHIC). The target protein was first solubilized in 8.0 mol/L urea solution, and was purified and refolded simultaneously by HPHIC with different chromatographic cakes. Experimental conditions, such as the ligand structures of stationary phase and the composition of mobile phase, were optimized. Under the optimal conditions, high mass recoveries and specific activities of rhSCF were acquired, the purities of rhSCF were above 95.5%, and the mass recoveries of rhSCF were above 49.6%. The final product was also verified as monomer by size exclusion chromatography and matrix assisted laser desorption ionization time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS). These results provided further evidence that HPHIC is an effective tool in the refolding and purification of recombinant proteins.

    ABSTRACT: Many active proteins exist in bovine pancreas and some of them have become protein drugs for human heath. These protein drugs sourcing from bovine pancreas are also high-tech product having high economic benefit. In the modern biological technology, the preparation of most active protein products relies on various liquid chromatographic techniques. The recent development of extraction of the active proteins from bovine pancreas and their separations and purifications, mainly with chromatographic methods are reviewed in this paper. It would be expected to be helpful for the preparation and application of the active proteins from natural products.

    ABSTRACT: Protein folding liquid chromatography (PFLC) is a powerful tool for protein refolding with simultaneous purification. We review its recent progress in liquid chromatography and molecular biology, primarily involving the validation of PFLC refolding of proteins containing multiple disulphide bonds, the application of mixed-mode chromatography, PFLC in molecular biology. Representative examples are described.

    ABSTRACT: Anionic tobacco peroxidase (TOP) is extremely active in chemiluminescence reaction of luminol oxidation without addition of enhancers and more stable than horseradish peroxidase under antibody conjugation conditions. In addition, recombinant TOP (rTOP) produced in Escherichia coli is known to be a perfect direct electron transfer catalyst on electrodes of various origin. These features make the task of development of a high-yield reactivation protocol for rTOP practically important. Previous attempts to reactivate the enzyme from E. coli inclusion bodies were successful, but the reported reactivation yield was only 14%. In this work, we thoroughly screened the refolding conditions for dilution protocol and compared it with gel-filtration chromatography. The impressive reactivation yield in the dilution protocol (85%) was achieved for 8μg/mL solubilized rTOP protein and the refolding medium containing 0.3mM oxidized glutathione, 0.05mM dithiothreitol, 5mM CaCl2, 5% glycerol in 50mM Tris-HCl buffer, pH 9.6, with 1μM hemin added at the 24th hour of incubation. A practically important discovery was a 30-40% increase in the reactivation yield upon delayed addition of hemin. The reactivation yield achieved is one of the highest reported in the literature on protein refolding by dilution. The final yield of purified active non-glycosylated rTOP was ca. 60mg per L of E. coli culture, close to the yield reported before for tomato and tobacco plants overexpressing glycosylated TOP (60mg/kg biomass) and much higher than for the previously reported refolding protocol (2.6mg per L of E. coli culture).
