To prepare a novel fusion protein (tTF/SA) as a universal effector for targeting therapy of blood coagulation and to analyze its biological activities. The fusion gene tTF/SA was constructed by PCR, then inserted into expression vector pET22 b (+), and expressed in E. coli BL21 (DE3). The fusion protein was purified using Nickel-affinity chromatography column. The activities of tTF moiety of the fusion protein were analyzed by clotting assay and FX activation assay, and the binding activities of Streptavidin(SA) to Biotin(B) were analyzed using ELISA.


The recombinant plasmid tTF/SA/pET22 b (+) with the correct sequence was obtained. The fusion gene tTF/SA was expressed with high yield in E. coli BL21 (DE3). The purified fusion protein retain the abilities of activating FX, inducing blood coagulation, and binding Biotin. The fusion gene tTF/SA was successfully expressed in E. coli BL21 (DE3). The recombinant tTF/SA proteins retain the activities of TF and SA. The multitarget therapy of selectively inducing thrombosis in tumor blood vessels can be achieved by the combination of tTF/SA, as a universal effector, and biotinlated carriers directing to tumor blood vessels.
