Objectives: Recombinant products play an important role to improve health conditions.Human Granulocyte-Macrophage Colony Stimulating Factor (hGM-CSF) is a cytokine that stimulates many differentiated myeloid cells to produce granulocytes, macrophages, and monocytes. Considering the clinical application of human GM-CSF, the current study is aimed to produce the recombinant human GM-CSF (rhGM-CSF) in Prokaryotic System and evaluated its biological activity.

Materials and Methods: In this experimental study the hGM-CSF under specific promoter was synthesized. Then it was cloned in HindIII restriction enzyme sites of the pcDNA3.1(+). The hGM-CSF gene Cloning was assessed by PCR, restriction enzyme digestion and sequencing. Subsequently, recombinant plasmids were transformed in Escherichia coli and expression of recombinant hGM-CSF was analyzed by electrophoresis and Immunoblotting. The rhGM-CSF purification was carried out by S-tag affinity chromatography and concentration of purified rhGM-CSF was determined by ELISA. Thebiological function of the rhGM-CSF on TF-1 cells was carried out by MTT proliferation assay.

Results: The cloned fragment on gel agarose was detected. Restriction enzyme digestion and recombinant plasmid sequencing results were confirmed pcDNA3.1(+)/hGM-CSF cloning. Expression analysis of rhGM-CSF by SDS-PAGE and Western blot showed a specific protein band. The concentration of purified protein was 0.54 μg/ml. Proliferation Index (PI) showed that treated cells were proliferated (p<0.05). The mean values of Proliferation Index were 7.8.

Conclusion: The production of recombinant hGM-CSF protein in the prokaryotic system was simple, rapid and inexpensive. We could express functional rhGM-CSF under gene-specific promoter no need to the chemical inducer.
