Structural data on membrane proteins in a lipid membrane environment is challenging to obtain but needed to provide information on the, often essential, protein-lipid interplay. A common experimental bottleneck in obtaining such data is providing samples in sufficient amounts and quality required for structural studies. We developed a new production protocol for the single-pass transmembrane protein (SPTMP) tissue factor (TF), exploiting the high expression level in E. coli inclusion bodies and subsequent refolding. This provided more than 5 mg of functional TF per liter bacterial culture. This is substantially more than what was obtained by the classical approaches for expressing TF in the membrane-anchored configuration. We optimized reconstitution into circularized nanodiscs enabling the formation of stable, TF loaded nanodiscs with different lipid compositions and with a limited material waste. The blood coagulation cascade is initiated by the complex formation between TF and Factor VIIa (FVIIa), and we probed this interaction by a functional assay and SPR measurements, which revealed similar activity and binding kinetics as TF produced by other protocols, demonstrating that high-yield production does not compromise TF function. Furthermore, the amounts of sample produced permitted initial small angle X-ray scattering studies providing the first structural information about TF and its binding to FVIIa in a lipid environment. This strategy possibly allows for probing the multicomponent complex TF:FVIIa together with its substrate Factor X on a lipid bilayer, but may also be relevant as a production strategy for other SPTMP for which structural information, in general, is limited.
