Abstract: Heavy metal-associated isoprenylated plant proteins (HIPPs) is an important metallochaperones due to its unique heavy metal binding domains (HMA) and the structural characteristics of isoprenylation motif. In order to identify the chelating ions of CsHIPP26.1 protein in Camellia sinensis (L.) cv. ‘Huangjinya’, the pET-32a-CsHIPP26.1 recombinant plasmids and empty carriers were respectively transferred into E. coli BL21, and then were cultured in LB liquid culture medium with 4 mol·L-1 single metal ions (CuCl2, ZnCl2, MgCl2, FeCl3, CaCl2) or multiple metal ions and 1 mmol·L-1 IPTG. The growth of E. coli in different ion media was observed, meanwhile the fusion target protein was obtained by His-tag protein purification magnetic bead. The contents of metal ions in fusion protein were analyzed by atomic absorption spectrophotometer, and the number of ions chelated by the protein was calculated. The results show that CsHIPP26.1 protein was only chelated with Zn2+ and Cu2+, and the chelating ability to Zn2+ was significantly higher than Cu2+. Based on the molar ratio of its bound metal ions to the target protein, the maximum number of Zn2+, Cu2+ chelated by CsHIPP26.1 protein was 2 and 1, respectively.
