Abstract

© 2019 Bentham Science Publishers. Background: Trypsin from fish species is considered as a cold-adapted enzyme that may find potential biotechnological applications. In this work, the recombinant expression, refolding and activation of Trypsin I (TryI) from Monterey sardine (Sardinops sagax caerulea) are reported. Methods: TryI was overexpressed in Escherichia coli BL21 as a fusion protein of trypsinogen with thioredoxin. Refolding of trypsinogen I was achieved by dialysis of bacterial inclusion bodies with a recovery of 16.32 mg per liter of Luria broth medium. Results: Before activation, the trypsinogen fusion protein did not show trypsin activity. Trypsinogen I was activated by adding 0.002 U of native TryI purified from the sardine pyloric caeca (nonrecombinant). The activated recombinant trypsin showed three times more activity than the nonrecombinant trypsin alone. Conclusion: The described protocol allowed obtaining sufficient amounts of recombinant TryI from Monterey sardine fish for further biochemical and biophysical characterization of its coldadaptation parameters.
