Abstract

The E.coli gene ogt encodes the DNA repair protein O6-alkylguanine-DNA-alkyltransferase (O6-AlkG ATase). The protein coding region of the gene was cloned into a multicopy expression vector to obtain high yields of the enzyme (˜ 0.2% of total protein) which was purified to apparent homogeneity by affinity, molecular exclusion and reverse-phase chromatography. Good correlation was found between the determined and predicted amino acid compositions. The ability of the purified protein to act on O6-methylguanine (O6-MeG), O6-ethylguanine (O6-EtG) and (O4-methylthymine (O4-MeT) in self-complementary dodecadeoxyribonucleotides was compared to that of 19 kDa fragment of the related ada-protein. With both proteins the rate order was O6-MeG > O6-EtG > O4-MeT, however, the ogt protein was found to repair O6MeG, O6-EtG and (O4-MeT, 1.1, 173 and 84 times, respectively, faster than the ada protein.
