  • Publication number: 20080254511
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process for producing a heterologous protein by means of an E. coli strain in a fermentation medium. The process comprises fermenting an E. coli strain in a fermentation medium. The E. coli strain has a mutation in the lpp gene or in the promoter region of the lpp gene, and contains a gene coding for a heterologous protein which is functionally linked to a signal sequence coding for a signal peptide. The fermentation medium includes Ca2+ ions in a concentration above 4 mg/l or Mg2+ ions in a concentration above 48 mg/l. The E. coli strain secretes the heterologous protein into the fermentation medium. The protein is removed from the fermentation medium.
