- Although diatoms have been extensively studied as bioreactors, only a limited number of efficient gene promoters are available. Therefore, the development of new endogenous promoters is important for the heterologous production of a variety of recombinant proteins. Herein, we identified the most abundant secreted protein in Phaeodactylum tricornutum, designated ‘highly abundant secreted protein 1’ (HASP1), and characterised the activities of its promoter and signal peptide using green fluorescent protein (GFP) as a reporter. The HASP1 promoter strongly drove GFP expression during all growth phases of P. tricornutum in culture, in contrast to the commonly used fcpA promoter, which is less active during the stationary phase. The HASP1 signal peptide was also sufficient for facilitating efficient secretion of GFP by P. tricornutum. Our findings suggest that both the promoter and the signal peptide of HASP1 can be utilized as novel tools for the overexpression and secretion of recombinant proteins in P. tricornutum.
