    In the present study, the genes encoding trypsinogen and active trypsin from Streptomyces griseus were both cloned and expressed in the methylotrophic yeast Pichia pastoris with the α-factor secretion signal under the control of the alcohol oxidase promoter. The mature trypsin was successfully accumulated extracellularly in soluble form with a maximum amidase activity of 6.6 U ml(-1) (batch cultivation with flask cultivation) or 14.4 U ml(-1) (fed-batch cultivation with a 3-l fermentor). In contrast, the recombinant trypsinogen formed inclusion bodies and no activity was detected. Replacement of the trypsin propeptide Ala-Pro-Asn-Pro confirmed that its physiological function was as a repressor of activity. More importantly, our results proved that the propeptide inhibited the activity of trypsinogen after its successful folding.
