    Binding of LsrB to endogenous AI-2. Purified LsrB (BL21) and LsrB (BL21∆luxS) proteins (5 mg/ml) were incubated for 10 min at 37, 50 and 60 °C to release endogenous AI-2, respectively. After incubation, the LsrB proteins were removed by ultrafiltration (10,000-Da cut-off; EMD Millipore), and the filtered reaction products were tested for AI-2 activity using a V. harveyi BB170 bioassay. The extent of LsrB binding to endogenous AI-2 was evaluated using an AI-2 assay, which showed that recombinant LsrB (BL21) bound to endogenous AI-2 (produced by wild-type strain BL21) and was released from LsrB (BL21) at 50 or 60 °C, respectively ( a ). However, since the luxS mutant BL21∆luxS did not produce endogenous AI-2, no AI-2 could be released from the recombinant LsrB (BL21∆luxS) ( b ). Moreover, the recombinant LuxS protein, which was expressed in strain BL21 (pColdTF-lsrB) as a negative control, also showed no AI-2 binding activity ( c ).

    Article Snippet: Cell-free culture fluid (CF) was prepared as follows: E. coli strains BL21 (DE3), BL21∆luxS and DH5a were grown in LB at 37 °C, and then pelleted by centrifugation at 12,000 g at 4 °C for 10 min. Then, the resulting supernatants were filtered through a 0.22-μm filter (EMD Millipore, Bedford, MA, USA) to obtain CF samples.

    Binding of LsrB to endogenous AI-2. Purified LsrB (BL21) and LsrB (BL21∆luxS) proteins (5 mg/ml) were incubated for 10 min at 37, 50 and 60 °C to release endogenous AI-2, respectively. After incubation, the LsrB proteins were removed by ultrafiltration (10,000-Da cut-off; EMD Millipore), and the filtered reaction products were tested for AI-2 activity using a V. harveyi BB170 bioassay. The extent of LsrB binding to endogenous AI-2 was evaluated using an AI-2 assay, which showed that recombinant LsrB (BL21) bound to endogenous AI-2 (produced by wild-type strain BL21) and was released from LsrB (BL21) at 50 or 60 °C, respectively ( a ). However, since the luxS mutant BL21∆luxS did not produce endogenous AI-2, no AI-2 could be released from the recombinant LsrB (BL21∆luxS) ( b ). Moreover, the recombinant LuxS protein, which was expressed in strain BL21 (pColdTF-lsrB) as a negative control, also showed no AI-2 binding activity ( c ). AI-2 (10 μM) was used as a positive control

    Schematic chart of strategy for binding of LsrB to endogenous AI-2 or exogenous AI-2.

However, since the luxS mutant BL21∆luxS did not produce endogenous AI-2, no AI-2 could be released from the recombinant LsrB (BL21∆luxS). The combination of endogenous AI-2 produced by BL21 (DE3), which is known to interfere with the binding of AI-2 to LsrB (BL21), resulted in the loss in the ability of LsrB (BL21) to bind to exogenous AI-2. Hence, the BL21 (DE3) luxS mutant, which was incapable of producing endogenous AI-2, but could bind to exogenous AI-2
