To construct a calibration curve using bovine serum albumin (Serva, USA). Protein concentration shows that the total output is 150 mcg from 500 ml culture of Escherichia coli cells.

Example 4. The study apoptotic activity of recombinant peptide analogue of a fragment of Kappa-casein person in relation to cancerous cells.

To analyze the effect of recombinant peptide analogue of a fragment of Kappa-casein person, use cell adenocarcinoma human breast line MCF-7 from the Russian cell culture collection of vertebrates, ISC RAS, St.-Petersburg, which is cultivated in IMDM medium with 10 mm L-glutamine and 40 mg/ml gentamicin in the presence of 10% fetal bovine serum at 37°C in an atmosphere of 5% CO2in the culture flasks with square bottom surface 25 cm2. Counting the number of cells is carried out in the camera Goryaeva. 2×106the MCF-7 cells were cultured in 96-well tablet for 2 days (exponential growth phase, 50% of the monolayer). To the culture medium add a recombinant analogue of the Kappa-casein person and incubated for 3 days, after which assessed the t of morphological changes by light microscopy and analyze cell viability using the MTT-test [7]. For this, cells MCF-7 incubated in the presence of 1 mg/ml MTT for 1 h, 37°C, the medium with MTT removed. MTT-formazan dissolved in isopropyl alcohol, and determine the optical density of the solution at a wavelength of 570 nm with control at a wavelength of 630 nm on the device "Multiskan RC", ThermoLabs (USA).

The results of the experiment are presented in figure 5. The experimental results show that incubation of MCF-7 in the presence of the generated recombinant analogue of Kappa-casein person leads to a significant reduction in their viability (62%, 3 days incubation). Decreased viability is accompanied by morphological changes characteristic of apoptosis of cells in culture: detaching from the plastic substrate, condensation of cytoplasm and nuclei and the appearance of secondary necrotic cells, painted Trifanova blue. On the third day of incubation, the number of secondary necrotic cells reaches 20-25%.

In addition, conduct quantitative determination of apoptotic cells in culture using flow cytometry. For this, cells MCF-7 were cultured in 24-hole tablet 2 days (2×105cells/well, the exponential growth phase, 50% of the monolayer). To the culture medium add a recombinant analogue of the Kappa-casein person according to the method described in [2]. Cells incubated for 24, 48 or 72 hours.

After incubation, the cells ukrepivshis from p is Daiki, harvested from the culture medium, centrifuged 15 min at 2000 g, after which the medium was removed and the cells are suspended in buffer for color OPTIONS (30 mm HEPES-NaOH pH 7.5, 3 mm CaCl2, 140 mm NaCl, 100 µg/ml PI and 1 ál/(ml cell suspension) of a solution of FITC-labeled annexation V (BD Biosciences, USA). The cells in the composition of the monolayer was washed with TBS (140 mm NaCl, Tris-HCl pH 7.5), incubated with 100 μg/ml of trypsin in phosphate-buffered saline. Then inactivate the trypsin by adding IMDM medium with 10% fetal bovine serum, the cells are precipitated by centrifugation for 15 min at 2000 g, the medium removed and the cells are suspended in buffer for color OPTIONS. All cells analyzed by flow cytometer BD FACSAria using system filters 585/42 BP (PI) and BP 530/30 (FITC).

The results of the experiments presented in Fig.6. Experimental results confirm that the generated recombinant analogue of the Kappa-casein person induces apoptotic death of these cells: incubation of the cells in the presence of recombinant analogue of Kappa-casein person leads to the destruction of the monolayer and detaching the cells from the plastic substrate. The increase in the number of necrotic cells is due to loss of apoptotic cells. Therefore, necrotic cells are secondary necrotic, i.e. the result of apoptotic death.

Thus, the first floor is Jena plasmid DNA pFK2, containing the gene encoding the recombinant peptide analogue of a fragment of Kappa-casein man from 24 to 134 amino acid residue and a C-terminal his-tag tract that provides products in Escherichia coli cells recombinant peptide analogue of a fragment of Kappa-casein person having apoptotic activity against cancer cells.
