Rapid and accurate measurement of expressed recombinant protein: The target gene was fused to the enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) gene with a -1 ribosomal frame shifting (-1RFS) element. The unfused target and the target-EGFP fusion proteins were produced at a fixed ratio showing high enzymatic activity without a large metabolic burden. Furthermore, the expression ratio between unfused and fused forms was adjustable simply by exchanging -1RFS signals. This method would be useful for the real-time monitoring of recombinant protein expression.
