Abstract: A family of plasmid expression vectors, containing fragments of the E. coli alkaline phosphatase gene (phoA), has been constructed for the λPR promoter-directed thermoindu-cible superproduction of fusions of heterologous polypeptides to the N- or C-terminus of E. coli alkaline phosphatase and its leader peptide. Effective expression and export to pe-riplasm of resulting fusion proteins, which may retain enzymatic activity of the phospha.-tase has been shown.
