The isolation of dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) cDNA sequences from the messenger RNA of Pneumocystis carinii using the polymerase chain reaction is described. The 206-amino acid P. carinii DHFR was expressed to high levels in Escherichia coli inclusion bodies using the T7 promoter expression system. Solubilization of the inclusion bodies in 4 M guanidine hydrochloride and refolding of the recombinant protein in the presence of 0.5% polyethylene glycol 1450 yielded correctly folded DHFR which...Expand abstract
