Laccase TVEL5 from Trametes versicolor


TVEL5 integrated in shuttle vector

The laccase Trametes versicolor TVEL5 BBa_K863030 was cloned with classic restriction ligation steps into the shuttle vector (BBa_K863204). This construct (BBa_K863207) was linearized and integrated into the yeast genome of P. pastoris GS115. Positive Clones with single cross over were identified by PCR as shown in the following pictures. <<<<<<<BILDER PCR (2 pieces)>>>>>>>> The clones were cultivated in minimal medium and induced with 1% (v/v) methanol twice a day for 2 days. The supernatant of the culture was examined to active laccases by testing the enzyme activity. For this purpose the supernatant was re-buffered into H2O with HiTrap Desalting Columns and incubated with 0.4 mM CuCl2. After 2 hours of incubation time 140 µL of the re-buffered supernatant were applied for the activity assay with 40 µL Britton-Robinson buffer (pH 5) and measured at 25 °C. These setting were chosen because of the expieriences with the TVEL0 laccase. To detect activity of the TVEL5 laccase 9 mM ABTS were used. Figure x shows a distinct activity of each cultivation (C1, C2, C3) in comparison to the control, which was treated like the other samples. The control, which was also applied with CuCl2 also represented the negative control to determine the effect of CuCl2 oxidizing ABTS. In Figure x the same experimental setup was used in a total volume of 1 mL. The oxidation of ABTS by TVEL5 laccase is visible to the naked eye in C1, C2 and C3 in comparison to the control.

Activity test of cultivation (culture 1, 2, 3) supernatant of BBa_K863207. The control is the P. pastoris GS115.
