constitutive expression of CBDcex fused to BclA with 6xHis tag
CBDcex fused to BclA with 6xHis tag is one of a series of surface expressing fusion proteins that make up biodevice that aims to be the therapeutic solution against norovirus infections. This protein in particular is a cellulose binding protein(CBD) fused to surface expression anchoring domain(BclA), connected by a 6xHis tag to be easily identified by Western blotting.

We succeeded in surface expressing anti-NoV scFv BBa_K1933002 antibody using INPNC. We aimed to orally administrate this protein expressing E. coli, however, we obtained an overwhelmingly negative result from surveys conducted when asked "Would you feel uncomfortable with oral administration of sterilized recombinant organisms?" This is why we also constructed a parts that surface expresses cellulose binding domains (CBD). With this part, we can "leash" E.coli to cellulose and make them swiftly exit human digestive systems. We selected CBDcex as CBD for this part.
We used whole-cell Westernlotting with anti-His tag antibody(Fig.1(a)). Then, we prepared the membrane fraction from the E. coli lysate. Membrane fraction was solubilized and used for Nickel Sepharose purification and precipitates were examined by Western blotting against His tag(Fig.1(b)).
A band corresponding to BclA-His-CBDcex (17 kDa) was not observed in both whole cell and membrane fraction Western blotting (Fig.1(a),(b)), which indicates that fusion protein was not expressed.
We fulfilled criteria listed below with this part.
