Abstract Share this page

Two synthetic genes were designed and engineered to encode for multimeric luteinizing-hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) peptides linked to T cell determinants. These genes were cloned into the prokaryotic expression vectors under control of strong inducible promoters, to overexpress the multimeric LHRH peptides as recombinant proteins. Multimeric LHRH-T cell peptides were expressed as insoluble inclusion bodies in Escherichia coli cultures. Cell extracts containing the recombinant proteins showed immunoreactivity on Western blots with monoclonal antibody recognizing the native hormonal peptide. These gene constructs have potential applications in therapy of sex-steroid-hormone-dependent cancers.
