The Phanerochaete chrysosporium ME446 cbhI.2 cDNA was cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli using a pET system. Pulse-labelling revealed the expression of an induced protein of approximately 50- 60 kDa that reacted with anti-P. chrysosporium ME446 CBH antibodies. The expressed protein remained undegraded in vivo for 135 min but was biologically inactive in vitro.
