Abstract

This study was aimed to produce recombinant human Tim23 protein by molecular cloning, expression, and purification. Amplification of human TIM23 was carried out by PCR and cloned into DH5α cells. The pET28a-human TIM23 was transformed into BL21DE3 and expressed the gene by IPTG induction. Recombinant pure human Tim23 antigen was prepared, injected into rabbit and polyclonal antibodies were raised, which was confirmed by western blotting. The transformed DH5α colonies screened for recombinant TIM23 on agarose gel electrophoresis depicted specific band corresponding to ~5.4kb pET28a vector and a band at ~0.63kb confirmed the clone. Over expression of recombinant human Tim23 was confirmed by SDS-PAGE in BL21DE3 bacterial cells followed by purification by affinity chromatography. Furthermore, polyclonal antibodies were raised and validated by immunoblotting. This study concludes a fundamental and comprehensive study on the molecular cloning, expression, purification and raising antibodies against recombinant human Tim23. Characterization of Tim23 protein will further enhance the existing knowledge on biogenesis of mitochondria. Polyclonal antibody of Tim23 could be a useful tool for validating regulatory mechanism in mitochondria.
