Studying protein-protein interaction is crucial to understand the fundamental processes of molecular biology. High-throughput screening, such as immunoprecipitation followed by proteomic analysis, allows for the identification of numerous candidate partners that might interact with a selected protein. Here, we demonstrate an efficient experimental pipeline for verifying protein-protein interactions between a bait protein using the example of Odontoglossum ringspot virus ORSV capsid protein CP and the host CP-binding protein. These candidate CP-binding proteins were identified through high-throughput proteomic and transcriptomic approaches.
In Vitro Transcription and Translation
A system is described which permits the efficient synthesis of proteins in vitro at high temperature. It is based on the use of an unfractionated cell lysate S30 from Sulfolobus solfataricus previously well characterized in our laboratory for translation of pretranscribed mRNAs, and now adapted to perform coupled transcription and translation. The essential element in this expression system is a strong promoter derived from the S. The synthesis of two different proteins is reported, including the S. The simplicity of the experimental procedure and specific activity of the proteins offer a number of possibilities for the study of structure-function relationships of proteins. Cell-free protein synthesis CFPS systems have been used initially to investigate certain fundamental aspects of cell biology, such as deciphering the structure of the genetic code or elucidating the basic features of transcriptional and translational control [ 1 — 3 ]. Later, CFPS systems turned out to be also powerful tools to produce high amounts of proteins for a wide range of applications ranging from pharmaceutical use to protein structure analysis [ 4 , 5 ].
Protocol DOI: In this chapter, we describe the use of plasmid vectors in transcription and translation systems in vitro to investigate aspects of the biology of the gene and the protein for which it codes. An in vitro, or cell-free, assay reproduces a relatively. An in vitro, or cell-free, assay reproduces a relatively complex physiological process by mixing the essential purified components of the system under controlled conditions outside of the cell. Such systems allow the basic steps of transcription and translation to be studied individually, and the products obtained at each step to be altered in different ways according to the needs of the research.
In Vitro Transcription and Translation Protocols
The in vitro synthesis of proteins in cell-free extracts is an important tool for molecular biologists and has a variety of applications, including the rapid identification of gene products e. The use of in vitro translation systems can have advantages over in vivo gene expression when the over-expressed product is toxic to the host cell, when the product is insoluble or forms inclusion bodies, or when the protein undergoes rapid proteolytic degradation by intracellular proteases. In principle, it should be possible to prepare a cell-free extract for in vitro translation of mRNAs from any type of cells. In practice, only a few cell-free systems have been developed for in vitro protein synthesis. In general, these systems are derived from cells engaged in a high rate of protein synthesis. This article will explain different approaches to in vitro protein synthesis translation of purified RNA versus "linked" and "coupled" transcription:translation and will also describe basic differences between eukaryotic and prokaryotic cell-free systems. The most frequently used cell-free translation systems consist of extracts from rabbit reticulocytes, wheat germ and Escherichia coli.
