Abstract:

Exendin-4 is a 39 amino acid peptide isolated from the Gila monster salivary gland. It is 53% homologous to GLP-1 and exhibits similar glucoregulatory activities. In this study, exendin-4 dimer (D-Ex4) was constructed, cloned into plasmid pET32a(+) and expressed in E. coli BL21(DE3). The fusion protein with His-tag at the N-terminus was purified with a Ni-NTA-agarose column. After proteolytic cleavage, D-Ex4 peptide with high purity was obtained by HPLC. The results obtained by chemical cross-linking showed that D-Ex4 maintained affinity to GLP-1 receptor.

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
