The use of the uspA and uspB promoters (universal stress promoters) for heterologous protein production in Escherichia coli is described. Best results were obtained with a moderate copy number vector (1560 copies) bearing the uspA promoter, reaching 4.6 mg/g dry cell weight (DCW) of ZZ-proinsulin secreted to the periplasm and 1.9 mg/g DCW secreted to the culture medium. These values are about 1.7-fold higher than those previously reported with the same ZZ fusion tag and the SpA leader peptide showing that these stress promoters are potentially valuable for recombinant protein secretion in E. coli. It is further demonstrated that the use of M9 minimal medium is advantageous for protein secretion as compared to LB rich medium.
