Abstract New plasmid constructs described in this article allow the coexpression in bacteria of any protein with several different NMT proteins, including the recently cloned full-length human NMT 1 and 2, I s and with increased expression of bacterial Met-AP Through the use of these plasmids in different combinations it should be possible to improve the homogeneity of a large number of recombinant protein preparations by the complete removal of the initiating methionine and increased extent of N-myristoylation. The new reagents described in this article are available upon request.
