Analysis of pZ7-GST-fusion protein expression patterns and affinity-purified protein complexes in Z. mobilis. 15% SDS-polyacrylamide gels (Coomassie Blue-stained) of proteins obtained after glutathione-affinity chromatography of cell lysates prepared from cultures of wild-type or transformant strains of Z. mobilis containing pZ7-GST, or pZ7-GST-derived expression vectors. Panel A: Z. mobilis ATCC 29191 wild type and plasmid transformed strains grown under semi-aerobic conditions. Panel B: Z. mobilis ATCC 29191 wild type and plasmid transformed strains grown under anaerobic conditions. Panel C: Z. mobilis CU1 Rif2 wild type and plasmid transformed strains grown under semi-aerobic conditions. Panel D: Z. mobilis CU1 Rif2 wild type and plasmid transformed strains grown under anaerobic conditions. The eluted protein fractions shown in lanes 1-8 are equivalent in Panels A-D. Red arrows indicate the positions of the respective pZ7C-GST-fusion proteins. Lane 1: Benchmark protein ladder; lane 2: wild type Z. mobilis strain (no shuttle vector); lane 3: pZ7-GST; lane 4: pZ7-GST-AcpP; lane 5: pZ7-GST-KdsA; lane 6: pZ7-GST-DnaJ; lane 7: pZ7-GST-Hfq; lane 8: pZ7-GST-HolC. Panel E: From left to right, identities of the proteins (co-purifying complexes) obtained from lysates of wild type (wt) Z. mobilis ATCC 29191; Z. mobilis ATCC 29191/pZ7C-GST; Z. mobilis ATCC 29191/pZ7C-GST-AcpP; and Z. mobilis ATCC 29191/pZ7C-GST-KdsA; grown under semi-aerobic conditions. ZM-GST: native glutathione S-transferase domain protein (ZZ6_0208); Glo: glyoxalase/bleomycin resistance protein/dioxygenase (ZZ6_1397); Recombinant GST: heterologous recombinant GST expressed from pZ7-GST; GST-AcpP: recombinant GST-AcpP fusion protein; GST-KdsA: recombinant GST-KdsA fusion protein; PDC: pyruvate decarboxylase (ZZ6_1397); AcpS: holo-acyl-carrier-protein synthase (ZZ6_1409); PyrG: CTP synthase (ZZ6_1034); DnaK: chaperone protein DnaK (ZZ6_0619); Tsf: translation elongation factor Ts (ZZ6_0173); Tuf: translation elongation factor Tu (ZZ6_0750); FabZ: (3R)-hydroxymyristoyl-ACP dehydratase (ZZ6_0182); G3P: glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (ZZ6_1034).
