Expression profile of recombinant TMKmt Antigen in cultures of E. coli BL21 (DE) in vitro. This figure shows the expression profile of recombinant TMKmt Ag in cultures of E. coli BL21 (DE) in vitro. A rise in TMKmt antigen levels was observed by MALDI-TOFF analysis at 3 h post-innoculation among in vitro cultures of a E. coli BL21 (DE) transformed with pET30a plasmid vector transducing the TMKmt gene. Not the sigmoid pattern comprising an initial lag phase, intermediate log (or exponential) phase and a late stationery phase
