The neverland from the Drosophila melanogaster play essential roles in cholesterol dehydrogenation. To clone the neverland from the Drosophila melanogaster c DNA library and construct the eukaryote expression plasmid p IEx-6-nvd and p XY212-nvd to expressing the recombinant NVD in S2 cell and S.cerevisiae W303-1A for further analyzing its bioactivity. Results of Western blot indicates the recombinant protein expressed by S2 cell and S. cerevisiae W303-1A can specifically combine with 6 × His antibody. Results of HPLC shows the cholestrol can be converted to 7-dehydrocholesterol by the recombinant S2 cell,however,the purified NVD and the recombinant S. cerevisiae W303-1A can not conversion cholesterol to 7-dehydrocholesterol,even the mixed recombinant S. cerevisiae W303-1A cell lysate and S2 cell lysate,neither. As the above result shows,the NVD need some chaperonins to complete the electron-transfer reactions when mediates the cholesterol dehydrogenation reaction.
