Thermostable lichenase as a translational reporter

Thermostable lichenase as a translational reporter Hybrid genes containing the reporter gene for thermostable lichenase and model genes rec A, rec A1, cry3a, cry3aM, and ssp1 were constructed. The expression of these genes was studied in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. The presence of lichenase in the hybrid proteins was shown to facilitate analysis of the hybrid protein expression in transgenic organisms. Owing to high relative activity and thermostability of lichenase, the activity of this enzyme can be measured by simple, rapid and sensitive qualitative and quantitative methods that do not require costly equipment and reagents. Using the zymograms method, molecular masses of the lichenase-containing hybrid proteins can be precisely estimated. This method is proposed instead of Western blotting using lichenase as a translational reporter. Our results showed that the use of thermostable lichenase as a translational reporter yields the data that are problematic to obtain using traditional methods of gene expression analysis, which is of importance for fundamental and applied research.
