CREB3L1 has been previously shown to auto-acetylate itself when prepared from HeLa cell based in vitro protein expression lysates. To circumvent the concerns of the contamination of co-purified human proteins from HeLa lysates, the protein was purified through insect cell transfection in vitro. The objective of this study was to assay the auto-acetylation activity of CREB3L1 prepared from insect cells using the baculovirus expression vector system (BEVS). To this end, His-tagged CREB3L1 was affinity purified from Hi5 cells using an IMAC column and used for acetylation assay.
