Background

The Remarkable Yield Translation System (RYTS) Kit is a cell-free protein synthesis system. This kit includes an E.coli extract and all essential components for coupled transcription / translation reaction. The RYTS Kit contains the E.coli Lysate, which is prepared according to unique method developed for highly efficient production of extensive protein by RIKEN (1-4). ProteinExpress Co., Ltd. has been licensed to distribute this method by RIKEN under JP patent No. 4477923, US No. 7615344 and EP No.1655375.

Features

Synthesis of recombinant protein using RYTS Kit is highly efficient, convenient and quick. Maximum yield of protein can reach 150μg per the 300μl reaction.

Furthermore, this kit is available for the expression of protein with unnatural amino acid by exploitation of CloverDirect™ tRNA Reagents for Site-Directed Protein Functionalization. CloverDirect™ allows the incorporation of unnatural amino acids at defined positions of proteins using in vitro translation (see page 8 for details). CloverDirect™ allows the incorporation of unnatural amino acids at defined positions of proteins using in vitro translation (see page 8 for details).

<Evaluation of produced protein activity>
To evaluate performance of RYTS Kit in comparison to a competitor's cell-free protein synthesis kit (Kit A), activities of Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) resulting from protein syntheses by these two kits were determined. After these reactions, the fluorescent intensities of each reaction mixtures were measured by a fluorescence scanner. It was shown that the obtained fluorescent intensity from RYTS reaction mixture was 3-fold greater than from Kit A reaction mixture

Construction and preparation of expression template

<DNA template>
The DNA template (circular DNA or linear DNA) for protein synthesis should be contained that a protein-coding sequence be under the control of a T7 promoter and located downstream of a ribosomal binding site (RBS) sequence. Additionally, T7 terminator sequence is located at downstream of the coding sequence. Distance between T7 promoter and start ATG should not exceed 100 base pairs, and also distance between the RBS sequence and start ATG should not be more than 5-8 base pairs. Please refer to Figure 1 for an example of the DNA template.

Figure 1. An example of template
In case of very low protein yield, optimization of nucleotide sequence (codon usage, addition of N-terminal tags, etc.) is required to improve protein productivity. We recommend the use of ProX tag, which is original N-terminal peptide tag developed for efficient expression in E.coli cell-free protein synthesis system. ProX tag sequence is indicated at Figure 2.

< mRNA template>
Messenger RNA, which is generally synthesized from circular or linear DNA template using commercial transcription kit or RNA polymerase, is also available for RYTS reaction. In such case, the DNA template for transcription of mRNA should be also constructed according to section 5.1 DNA template. But, the T7 promoter, which is recognized by T7 RNA polymerase, can be replaced to other promoter recognized by other RNA polymerase (e.g., SP6 promoter recognized by SP6 RNA polymerase).
