Abstract [en]

Genetic engineering has been used for fusion of peptides, with different length and composition, on a protein to study the effect on partitioning in an aqueous two-phase system. The system was composed of dextran and the thermoseparating ethylene oxide-propylene oxide random copolymer, EO30PO70. Peptides containing tryptophan, proline, arginine or aspartate residues were fused at the C-terminus of the recombinant protein ZZ-cutinase. The aim was to find effective tags for the lipolytic enzyme cutinase for large-scale extraction. The target protein and peptide tags were partitioned separately and then together in the fusion proteins in order to gain increased understanding of the influence of certain amino acid residues on the partitioning. The salt K2SO4 was used to reduce the charge dependent salt effects on partitioning and to evaluate the contribution to the partition coefficient from the hydrophobic-hydrophilic properties of the amino acid residues. The effect of Trp on peptide partitioning was independent of the difference in primary structure for (Trp)n, (Trp-Pro)n, (Ala-Trp-Trp-Pro)n and was only determined by the number of Trp. The effect of the charged residues, Arg and Asp, was dependent on the surrounding residues, i.e. if they were situated next to Trp or not. The partitioning behaviour observed for the peptides was qualitatively and in some cases also quantitatively the same as for the fusion proteins. The effect of the salts sodium perchlorate and triethylammonium phosphate on the partitioning was also studied. The salt effects observed for the peptides were qualitatively similar to the effects observed for the fusion proteins.
