A cDNA clone encoding human pancreatic procolipase was incorporated into a recombinant baculovirus. Spodoptera frugiperda insect cells infected with the recombinant baculovirus secreted procolipase into the medium, which could be isolated in a single step by immunoaffinity chromatography. The highly purified protein reactivated human pancreatic lipase in a concentration-dependent fashion and was efficiently converted to colipase by limited trypsin digestion. This expression system is suitable for producing amounts of procolipase adequate for biophysical studies.
