Log-phase BL21(DE3) E. coli containing a putative enzyme or empty vector control were treated with 0.1 mM IPTG to induce T7-promoter-dependent transcription. After 3 hours, A) cells were lysed, B) cells were treated with cold osmotic shock to extract periplasmic protein fraction, or C) the supernatant was filtered, and protein was precipitated by addition of TCA. All protein fractions were prepared for SDS-PAGE and analyzed by western blot with an anti-His-antibody.
