Abstract:   (1936 Views)
The human granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulation factor (hGM-CSF) gene was cloned in the pET 23a( +) expression vector under the control of strong bacteriophage T7 transcription and translation signals. The hGM-CSF gene was transferred into E. coli strainBL21 (DE3)pLysS andIPTG was used for induction of GM-CSF gene. Production of the target protein was obtained as revealed by ELISA and Western blot analysis. The produced 'h:GM-CSF was purified by immunoaffinity chromatography. The dot blot positive fractions were assayed for biological activity and it was shown that the expressed GM-CSF is active.
