A new system for expressing recombinant animal toxins in E. coli ?

Recombinant expression in bacteria remains the most “high yield, low cost” means for production of disulfide-rich peptides. Unfortunately, in most cases a long process of renaturation is necessary to obtain properly folded and fully active toxins. Here we describe a method that we have set up and successfully validated for the production of active toxins from animal venoms in E. coli.
