Default protein degradation in E coli .. help please



Hi all !!

I have big trouble expression my protein in E coli.
my protein is a DNA modifying enzyme, and I believe that is the problem : its toxicity.

The DNA seq is correct. I also add one extra stop codon (TAA) after the original one which is an TAG.

I used different e coli lines, also the rosetta2 .

I used induction at 37 C different times and RT up to over night.

I also tried to incubate the bacteria in protease inhibitors to avoid protein degradation.
any idea ?
thank you in advance for ur help
G.

What kind of system are you using for induction? IPTG? If so then try lowering the IPTG to 0.2 mM. Also try doing the induction at a lower temperature (as low as 15 C) to get better expression. If the protein is toxic I would also recommend waiting until the culture has reached a high density (OD600 of 0.9 to 1.2) and then doing induction as it will increase the overall yield/per liter.

PS: If using IPTG add glucose to the media to further suppress the promoter before induction
