The invention relates to biotechnology, particularly genetic engineering. Can be used to produce granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) human.
Granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor man (GM-CSF) can be used in the treatment of various pathological conditions of the immune and hematopoietic systems (anemia and myelodysplastic syndrome, neutropenia, AIDS and others), effects of radiation and chemotherapy of neoplastic diseases [C.M. Sakamoto, Golde D.W., Gasson J.C. The biology and clinical applications of granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor. J. of Pediatrics, 1991, v.118, no. 3, p.s17-s20], and also in immunotherapy for cancer in vitro activation of dendritic cells and stimulation of the immune response to cancer antigens [Nestle F.., Alijagic s, Gilliet m, Sun y, Grabbe s, Dummer R, Burg g, Schadendorf D. Vaccination ofmelanoma patients with peptide - or tumor lysine - pulsed dendritic cells. Nature Med., 1998, v.4, p.328-332].
Known methods for producing GM-CSF person, based on expression in transformed mammalian cells [Wong G.G., Witek J.S., Temple, P.A., Wilkens C.M., Leary C, Luxenberg D.P., Jones, S.S., Brown, E.L., Kay R., Orr E.G., Shoemaker C., Golde D.W., R.J. Kaufman, Hewick R., Wang, E.A., Clark, S.C. Human GM-CSF: Molecular cloning of the complementary DNA and purification of the natural and recombinant proteins. Science, 1985, v.228, No. 4701, p.810-815] and in yeast [Miyajima A., Otsu K., Schreurs J., M.W. Bond, J.S. Abrams, K. Arai Expression ofmurine and human GM-CSF in S. cerevisiae: mutagenesis of the potential glycosvlation sites. EMBO J., 1986, v.5., No. 6, p.1193-1197. The disadvantage of the first method is the extremely low yield of the target product (50 µg of protein from 1 l of medium). Yeast cells provide a higher level of synthesis (0.5 mg from 1 l of medium), but in this case, an obstacle to the use of the drug is species-specific post-translational glycosylation.
Microbiological synthesis is a promising method for receiving GM-CSF person. Closest to the claimed method is described in [R.T. Libby, G. Braedt, Kronheim S.R., C.J. March, L. Urdal, Chiaverotti S.R., Tushinski RJ Mochizuki D.Y., Hopp T.P., Cosman D. Expression and purification of native human granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor from an e. coli secretion vector. DNA, 1987, v.6, №3, p.221-229]. Recombinant plasmid DNA contains a gene artificial predecessor GM-CSF person, which consists of a sequence that encodes a signal peptide OmpA of E. coli and cDNA of the Mature GM-CSF person under the control of the hybrid promoter Ipp-lac.
Protein synthesis is carried out with the addition of the inducer, isopropyl-β-D-thiogalactopyranoside (IPTG), to a final concentration of 2 mm. The synthesized target protein after cleavage of the signal sequence is in the insoluble state. The obtained protein is purified using ion exchange and hydrophobic chromatography under denaturing conditions, followed by renaturation. The result is a Mature GM-CSF person the century with a total yield of 2.5 mg/l of culture fluid.
The disadvantage of this method is the relatively low level of synthesis of GM-CSF and the use of large quantities of IPTG for induction.
The invention solves the problem of obtaining a polypeptide with properties of GM-CSF person by constitutive synthesis, and increase the level of its biosynthesis in bacterial cells.
The problem is solved by constructing recombinant plasmid DNA pFGM17 that encodes a constitutive synthesis of the polypeptide with properties of GM-CSF human and Escherichia coli strain BL21(DE3)/pEGM17 for synthesis of this polypeptide with the level of expression of at least 15% of the total cellular protein. High constitutive level of synthesis of the target polypeptide is provided that plasmid pFGM17 has a high copiesto and contains the lac promoter of E. coli, in which the strains are not superproducers lac-repressor, acts as constitutive.
Recombinant plasmid DNA pFGM17 encoding a polypeptide with the structure of the GM-CSF is characterized by the following features:
has a molecular mass of 2,04 Md (3,133 KBP);
encodes the amino acid sequence synthetic precursor of GM-CSF person;
consists of Cloned/EcoRI - fragment DNA plasmids pSPFl [Peter LE, Kryukov E.A., Yakimov S.A., Wolfson A.N., Alibaeva R.A., Gusev A.A. Abramov, V.M., Korobko V.G. Influence of topog is the her site signal peptidases on the efficiency of secretion in periplasm Escherichia coli recombinant granulocyte-macrophage colonystimulating factor of the person. Bioorgan. chemistry, 1995, CH, No. 12, s-919] length 2,686 KBP containing the lac promoter of E. coli, the gene bla β-lactamase fragment of the lacZ gene of E. coli, plot ori of replication initiation and artificial sequence DNA encoding the signal peptide of the protein Cafl Yersinia pestis; and kpni restriction sites/EcoRI fragment of the intermediate plasmid pSK-GM length 447 BP, including synthetic gene GM-CSF person;
contains: lac promoter of E. coli, a synthetic gene artificial predecessor GM-CSF human gene bla β-lactamase, which determines the stability of the transformed plasmid pFGM17 cells to ampicillin, plot ori of replication initiation; the unique recognition sites of restriction endonucleases, with the following coordinates: Cloned - 280, PST - 293, BglII - 309, NcoI - 333, Xhol - 474, BamHI - 688, SalGI - 700, ClaI - 710, EcoRI - 727.
A distinctive feature of the proposed plasmid constructions is that the nucleotide sequence of the Mature GM-CSF together with a sequence that encodes a signal peptide protein Cafl Yersinia pestis, is part of the artificial gene predecessor, which is under the control of the lac promoter of E. coli. When using strains of E. coli, which is the superproducers lac-penpeccopa (laclq-strains, e.g., JM101), for induction of promoter and synthesis of the target protein requires the addition of IPTG at low concentrations (0.1 mm). In strains, which SuperPro what acetami lac-penpeccopa (for example, BL21(DE3)), expression of this gene is not dependent on the presence of inducer, which provides highly effective constitutive protein synthesis, precursor, which is cleaved by a signal peptidase cells of bacteria with the formation of the Mature GM-CSF (target product).
The use of the secretory apparatus of bacterial cells for heterologous expression has several advantages, in particular, allows to obtain the target protein, devoid of N-terminal methionine, in a soluble state from periplasm, bypassing the stage of destruction of the cell wall. In addition, the presence of a sequence that encodes a signal peptide at the 5'end of the gene artificial predecessor is able to overcome the difficulties often associated with the expression of GC-rich sequences. The use of the signal sequence Cafl Yersinia pestis is due to the fact that this protein, which is a component of bacterial capsules, is synthesized and secreted with high efficiency.
N-terminal sequence of the Mature GM-CSF contains an arginine residue and, therefore, carries a positive charge, a negative effect on the efficiency of cleavage of the signal sequence [Yamane K., Mizushima S. Introduction of basic amino acid residues after the signal peptide inhibits protein translation across the cytoplasmic membrane of E. coli. J. Biol. Chem., 1988, v.263, No. 36, p.19690-19696]. To eliminate this effect the Oia residue asparagine at position (-2) relative to the site of cleavage was replaced by an aspartic acid residue, that led to the charge neutralization of the site and to improve the efficiency of cleavage of the signal sequence. Primary structure of the Mature GM-CSF was not changed. This change was made by cloning the oligonucleotide duplex appropriate structure (see example 1) between the sites of cleavage of restricted Kpnl (3'-end portion sequence that encodes a signal peptide) and BglII (5'end of the gene gmcsf).
Expression of the hybrid precursor in cells of E. coli is accompanied by a partial translocation of the Mature GM-CSF in periplasmatic space, where the target protein can be isolated in soluble form, however, a large part of the protein after cleavage of the signal sequence remains in the insoluble state. For his selection, the use of denaturing agents.
To obtain strain-producer of the polypeptide with the structure of GM-CSF person transform competent cells of Escherichia coli BL21(DE3) recombinant plasmid pFGM17.
The resulting strain Escherichia coli BL21(DE3)/pFGM17 characterized by the following features.
Morphological features. Cells are small rod-shaped, gram-negative, risperadone, 1×3-5 µm, motile.
Cultural characteristics. During growth on solid medium LA colonies are round, smooth, translucent, nl is Stewie, gray, smooth edge, the diameter of the colonies 1-3 mm; the pasty consistency. Growth in LB liquid medium is characterized by a smooth blurred with the formation of light draught.
Physical and biochemical characteristics. Cells grow at temperatures 4-42°s at the optimum pH of 6.8 to 7.2. As the source of nitrogen used as a mineral salt in ammonium form, and organic compounds in the form of peptone, tryptone, yeast extract, amino acids. As the carbon source used amino acids, glycerol, carbohydrates.
Resistance to antibiotics. Cells are resistant to ampicillin (200 μg/ml), due to the presence of plasmid gene betalactamase.
The strain E. coli BL21(DE3)/pFGM17 provides constitutive synthesis of the polypeptide with properties of GM-CSF of human rights in the amount of not less than 15% of the total cellular protein, which is 2 times higher than in the prototype, in contrast to prototype the operation of induction during in vitro cultivation of strain is required. The combination of the above-mentioned properties of the strain E. coli BL21(DE3)/pFGM17 leads to increased manufacturability of the process of obtaining recombinant polypeptide.
