The goal of this project was to clone and express the antimicrobial peptide protegrin 1 (PG-1). Initially a yeast system was chosen but was discarded due to technical difficulties. Invitrogen’s bacterial T7 expression system was chosen next to express the peptide. PG-1 expression was verified by anti-his immunoblot and then the peptide was purified by IMAC. Its activity was verified using a Bacillus subtillis radial diffusion assay.
