This signal sequence is removed to produce prochymosin. This zymogen is then converted to active chymosin by cleavage of a 42-amino acid pro-peptide at the N[H.sub.2]-terminus facilitated by the acidic conditions found in the stomach (Pedersen et al., 1979).
pastoris X33 and pPICZ[alpha]A were used for expression of the preprochymosin, prochymosin, and chymosin genes.
Isolation and cloning of the preprochymosin, prochymosin, and chymosin genes
Codon optimization by codon randomization strategy increases the accumulation of calf prochymosin in E.
Examination of calf prochymosin accumulation in Escherichia coli: disulphide linkages are a structural component of prochymosincontaining inclusion bodies.
There are several reports about the use of oxidizing/reducing gluthatione in refolding of recombinant proteins such as prochymosin, growth hormone and alkaline phosphatase (28).
