DNA fragments coding for the N-terminal 185 amino acids (aa) and for the entire coding region of the adenovirus (Ad)12 E1b 58-kDa protein have been cloned in a prokaryotic expression vector. The N-terminal region of the 58-kDa viral protein (aa 21-205) is expressed as a beta-galactosidase (beta Gal) fusion protein encoded by plasmid pB58Ngal. Escherichia coli strains transformed with this plasmid synthesize a full-length fusion protein of 150-kDa and two truncated proteins: a 140-kDa protein containing aa 64-205 and a 120-kDa polypeptide containing aa 158-205 of the E1b 58-kDa protein. Antibodies raised against purified fusion proteins specifically immunoprecipitate the E1b 58-kDa protein from Ad12-infected and transformed cells. Bacteria transformed with plasmid pB58 carrying the entire E1b 58-kDa coding region (minus the first N-terminal 20 aa which are replaced by 4 aa of beta Gal) showed dramatically reduced growth properties after induction of 58K gene expression. We have not been able to detect substantial amounts of the 58-kDa protein in these cells. However, the viral 58-kDa polypeptide could be synthesized in vitro from plasmid pB58 in a DNA-dependent translation system from E. coli.
