Abstract

and secretion vectors were constructed and assessed for the expression of heterologous proteins. An anti-Ras single-chain antibody fragment (scFv) coding sequence was fused in-frame to different pre- or prepro-regions, or downstream from a reporter secretory gene ( glucoamylase), separated by a Kex2 protease (Kex2p)-like processing sequence. Both organisms are able to secrete soluble scFv, with yields depending on the nature of the expression cassette, up to levels ranging from 10 to 20 mg l. N-terminal sequence analysis of the purified scFv showed that fusions are correctly processed to the mature scFv by a signal peptidase or a Kex2p-type endoprotease present in and . The scFv protein also retains the capacity to bind to a glutathione-transferase (GST)–Harvey-Ras fusion, indicating that the antibody is functional. These results indicate that the yeasts and have potential for industrial production of soluble and active scFv.
