Why this paper

Why this paper

  • What actually happens inside the cell in response to genetic engineering, not just how we manipulate and alter cell

  • Can use to predict responses of the cell

  • Preemptive preparation against negative response

  • Different induction system


Intro thermo regulated expression system for recombinant protein expression

Intro: thermo-regulated expression system for recombinant protein expression

  • Chemical inducers (eg. IPTG):

  • expensive

  • toxic

  • Possible additional controls to remove chemicals (esp . for human use!)

Heat- inducible expression system pros:

- λpL/pR system relies on a strong and finely regulated promoter

- No special media or toxic chem. Inducers

- Culture handling and contaminations risks low

- Easily scalable (culture volume)

- Yield up to 30% recombinant protein (RP)/ total cell protein

  • Perfection?

Systems based on nutrient exhaustion: (eg. Depletion of an a.a.)

- starvation affects cell metabolism, synthesis of the recombinant protein

- Precise control of induction timing is difficult


Cons focus of presentation

Cons/Focus of presentation

  • Heat shock response (HSR)

  • Overproduction of RP (often in T7 too) -> heat shock like response, stringent response and a metabolic burden to the cells

  • Both HSR and RP overproduction-> converge on activation of genes coding for chaperones and proteases (sigma32 regulon)

  • Specific growth rates decrease, ribosomes degrade, central carbon metabolism altered

    -> affects RP production

  • How to avoid growth cessation, increase productivity, improve purification of RP


The system

The system:

cI857 mutant (1966): retains wild-type properties at low temperature, but unstable when temperature raised

- Interactions of cI857 with operators released up to 37 C, > 37 C mutant repressor inactivated


History of pl pr ci857

History of pL/pR-cI857:

  • 1979:1st expression vectors using the pL promoter (production: 6.6% -> now 30%)

  • 1983: increased productivity through temperature-regulated runaway replication, plasmid with cI857 high compatibility

  • Other improvements: synthetic RBS, suitable poly-linkers, mutation to operator oR -> tight repression up to 39 C (Helicobacter) (2005)

  • Similar system in l. lactis using comparative molecular modeling of the known 3D structure of cI857


Molecular and physiological responses after thermoinduction

Molecular and Physiological responses after thermoinduction


Sigma 32 master regulator

Sigma 32 –master regulator

  • Sigma32 regulon includes almost all genes for proteins involved in folding and degradation (chaperones, proteases)

  • Temperature increase -> nucleotide misincorporation and chromosome damage; sigma32 activation -> DNA and RNA protected by members of the regulon; other regulon members transfer delta-3-isopentyl-PP to tRNA to stabilize codon-anticodon pairing to improve tRNA thermal resistance

  • overexpression and accumulation of unfolded recombinant proteins -> genes involved in protein folding and degradation respond; most of these controlled by sigma32


Post heat shock and recombinant protein accumulation

Post heat shock and recombinant protein accumulation

  • Initial rapid upregulation of genes for chaperons and proteases (some in minutes) -> unstable environment -> metabolic burden -> slow growth rate and quantity protein produced

  • High protein production -> a.a. depleted (min. media) -> deactylatedtRNAs bind to ribosome -> RelA recognizes and makes alarmones (p)ppGpp -> stringent response -> higher transcription of stress-related genes and translation process interrupted-> as above

  • Both limit RP production

Transcriptomic analysis

Transcriptomic analysis

  • Harcum and Haddadin: dual stress of heating above 37 C and accumulation of unfolded RP (heated 50oC and IPTG-induced)

  • Found: 163/1881 genes responded in dual stress vs. either heated or induced

  • Genes coding for RNA polymerase (eg. rpoA/S) and ribosome coding genes downregulated


Resulting physiological response after induction

Resulting physiological response after induction

  • Decrease in specific growth rate

  • Increase in respiration (RP production and hsp increase ATP requirements 6x)

  • Alteration of central carbon metabolism, glucose consumption


How to optimize heterologous protein production

How to optimize heterologous protein production

  • Plasmid segregation

  • Host strain

  • Recombinant protein and localization

  • Culture strategies

  • Induction strategy – Heating duration and intensity


Plasmid segregation

Plasmid segregation

  • Plasmid maintenance and replication -> metabolic load and consumption of resources (further drained upon induction of RP production) = plasmid-load

  • Plasmid-free cells favored at higher temperatures (derepressed).

  • In RP production: avoid plasmid segregation and extend the production phase after induction: maintain plasmid copy number with culture strategies


Culture strategies

Culture strategies

  • Culture modes: batch, fed-batch and continuous

  • For plasmid copy# maintenance:

  • fed-batch (temporal): restrict specific growth rate to low values increasing rates of substrate addition before induction -> high cell concentrations

  • Continuous (spatial): higher plasmid stability and high cell density cultures in 1st , high RP productivity in 2nd (induced)

  • Lim and Jung: 23x final contration in fed-batch vs. batch culture (controlled substrate feed rate during growth phase and specific growth rate in production phase)

  • Curless et al.: 4-fold production under higher dilution rates tested – pre-induction specific growth rate affect productivity


Host strain

Host Strain

  • Different e coli strains have different heterologous gene expression capacities

  • Protease-deficient: eg. BL21 most productive in a study

  • We use BL21s for expression


Recombinant protein

Recombinant Protein

  • Thermoinduced system’s response can lead to recombinant proteins being degraded

  • Comparison study suggests factors: RP’s proteolytic sensitivity and thermal lability


Protein accumulation and recovery

Protein accumulation and recovery

Depending on localization signals:

  • Aggregates in the cytoplasm –IB easily isolated but have to refold after

  • Soluble form in cytoplsam

  • Soluble form in periplsamic – less proteolytic activity, simpler purification, fewer isoforms and post-trans. modifications, in vivo cleavage of signal peptide, formation of disulfide bonds

  • secreted to supernatant


Summary

Summary

  • Heat inducible system has many advantages but stresses cell out

  • Dual stress triggering of chaperone and protease production leads to comprised RP production

  • How to optimize productivity of RP


Production of recombinant proteins in e coli by the heat inducible expression system based on the phage lambda pj and

  • How different do you think internal cell responses are in other expression systems are?

  • How many of these possible stresses do we have to consider in our projects?
