Abstract

A continuous cell-free protein synthesis system of an extremely thermophilic eubacterium, Thermus thermophilus HB27, was constructed. This system produced MS2 phage RNA translation products at a rate of more than 5 μg per hour per 1.9 mg of ribosomes at 65°C and the production continued linearly for at least 340 min. When no polyamine was added, the system did not produce the proteins. The highest activity was recorded when 0.1 mM tetrakis(3-aminopropyl)ammonium and 1.0 mM spermine were added simultaneously.
