Figure 1.
Comparison of protein expression from pET vectors in BL21 Gen-X and standard BL21 (DE3) E. coli cells.Ten 2 ml cultures of BL21 (DE3) each containing a different protein expression construct were grown at 37ºC in LB and induced with 1 mM IPTG at OD600 = 0.4. Cells were incubated overnight and 1 ml harvested. Concurrently, 2 ml cultures of BL21 Gen-X containing the same ten protein expression constructs were grown at 37ºC in M9 minimal media and induced with 1 mM IPTG at the same OD. Cells were incubated overnight and 1 ml harvested. For both strains, pellets were suspended in 100 μl, lysed, and 10 μl electrophoresed on 4-12% polyacrylamide gels. In lanes 1,3,4,5,6,8,9, and 10, the quantity of recombinant protein obtained from BL21 Gen-X cells was considerably greater and the background of endogenous E. coli proteins significantly lower >

The BL21 Gen-X cells were created through careful cycles of mutagenesis, enrichment, and testing, resulting in a novel and more powerful protein expression strain. By reducing the growth rate and optimizing other characteristics, Genlantis scientists have produced BL21(DE3) cells that are qualitatively distinct from previous generations of BL21(DE3) E. coli.

Figure 2.
Comparison of protein expression from pET vectors in BL21 Gen-X E. coli with and without addition of the Gen-X Induction Enhancer. Cells were grown and induced as described in Figure 1. Additionally, l of the 10X Gen-X Induction Enhancer were added at the time of IPTG addition; downstream processing was the same. For many constructs, the addition of the Gen-X Induction Enhancer noticeably reduced background protein expression. In some instances, there is a decrease in absolute recombinant protein expression. However, the net result is a protein yield of higher purity due to the relatively lower background. In other cases, the Gen-X Induction Enhancer is essential for abundant target protein expression; for example in Lane 2, the 60KDa recombinant protein was observed only in the BL21 Gen-X cells along with the Gen-X Induction Enhancer, while in lane 8, the induction enhancer was responsible for increased expression of the 69 KDa protein

The results are striking: BL21 Gen-X, along with the powerful Gen-X Induction Enhancer, will express more of what you want, and less of what you don't want. For example, the BL21 Gen-X cells are able to express proteins that are not expressed or detected at all using other popular BL21 cells or kits. (see Figure 2, lanes 2)

With the BL21 Gen-X Competent E. coli Expression Kit, there is now a better way to express your recombinant proteins. The resulting higher yields and lower background will make downstream purification and processing of your recombinant proteins much easier, saving you significant time and money.
