Production of Pea Seed Lipoxygenases in Escherichia coli
The two major forms of lipoxygenase from pea seeds (LOX 2 and 3) have been cloned and expressed as soluble, active, non-fusion proteins in Escherichia coli. Unambiguous measurements to date comparing the homogeneously purified LOX 3 from E. coli and pea seeds have confirmed the authenticity of this recombinant product. Preliminary comparisons of LOX 2 in partiallγ-purified extracts suggested that the recombinant product was also authentic. Comparison of the enzymic properties of the two isoforms has indicated that they are quite different.
