The cytoplasmic granules of bovine neutrophils naturally possess
indolicidin - a promising cationic antimicrobial peptide as it displays inherent inhibitory activities against a broad type of microbial pathogens. In this study, a shake flask
level production and expression optimizations of the indolicidin by the recombinant
Escherichia coli C41 (DE3) clones (transformed with pET21a(+) plasmid carrying indolicidin gene) were carried out under standard conditions, as to determine the conditions
required for maximal production. It was determined that a concentration of 1 mM of
IPTG was effective, the 2×YT with salts and LB media at pH 7.5 with 3-6 h of incubation
were required for maximal indolicidin expression
