Purification and characterisation of recombinant His-tagged RgpB gingipain from Porphymonas gingivalis.

ABSTRACT: Gingipain proteases are important virulence factors from the periodontal pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis and are the target of many in vitro studies. Due to their close biochemical properties, purification of individual gingipains is difficult and requires multiple chromatographic steps. In this study, we demonstrate that insertion of a hexahistidine affinity tag upstream of a C-terminal outer membrane translocation signal in RgpB gingipain leads to the secretion of a soluble, mature form of RgpB bearing the affinity tag that can easily be purified by nickel-chelating affinity chromatography. The final product obtained high yielding high purity is biochemically indistinguishable from the native RgpB enzyme.
