1. CA2067334 - RECOMBINANT PRODUCTION OF LACTOPEROXIDASE

Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters
CLAIMS
1. An expression system which, when contained in a recombinant host cell, expresses a DNA sequence encoding a human or bovine lactoperoxidase, wherein said expression system comprises (a) the DNA sequence as shown in FIG. 1 or 3 operably linked to (b) control sequences compatible with said host cell whereby said DNA is expressed in said host cell.
2. A recombinant host cell which contains the expression system of claim 1.
3. A method to produce lactoperoxidase which method comprises culturing the recombinant host cells of claim 2 under conditions suitable to effect the expression of DNA encoding said lactoperoxidase and recovering the lactoperoxidase produced.
4. A DNA molecule comprising the nucleotide sequence shown in FIG. 1 or 3 in isolated and purified form.
5. A DNA molecule in isolated and purified form that is the sense or antisense strand of the DNA sequence as shown in FIG. 1 or 3.
6. The DNA molecule of claim 5 which is labeled.
7. A DNA sequence encoding bovine lactoperoxidase, said DNA
comprising a sequence as shown in Figure 1.
8. A DNA sequence encoding the carboxy terminus of human lactoperoxidase, said DNA comprising a sequence as shown in Figure 3.
