A precursor of ConBr, a glucose/mannose-binding plant lectin, was expressed in the yeast Pichia pastoris. Western blot analysis of transformed cells detected an intracellularly recombinant protein band with ca. 34.5 kDa. The recombinant protein was apparently active as suggested by its strong interaction with the mannose-rich yeast cell debris.

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.
