Abstract [en]

A system for heterologous expression in Escherichia coli of dehaloalkane dehalogenase DhlA from Xanthobacter autotrophicus strain GJ10 is presented. Thestrategy involved overexpression of E. coli chaperonins GroEL/ES which facilitated the production of soluble DhlA. When active-site mutant forms were constructed they could not to any detectable degree be expressed in a soluble state in the absence of overproduced GroEL/ES. However, with the described expression system, wild-type DhlA as well as variant forms randomly mutated in the active-site residues Phe172 and Trp175 were reliably produced. An introduced C-terminal (His)5-tag provided an immunological handle as well as a site for metal ion coordination utilized in affinity chromatography for the purification of recombinant DhlA. The purified His-tagged enzyme, DhlA-5His, was confirmed to be catalytically fully active when measuring the dehalogenase activity with dichloroethane as substrate.
