Biochemistry (Mosc). 2003 Jan;68(1):121-8.Myristoylated G(o)alpha was expressed in and highly purified from Escherichia coli strain JM109 cotransformed with pQE60 (G(o)alpha) and pBB131 (N-myristoyltransferase, NMT). Non-denaturing gel electrophoresis and gel filtration analysis revealed that the G(o)alpha, in its GDP-bound form, could form oligomers involving dimer, trimer, tetramer, pentamer, or hexamer and guanosine 5;-3-O-(thio)triphosphate (GTPgammaS) activation induced disaggregation of the G(o)alpha oligomers to monomers.
