I am aware that insulin can be expressed in E. coli, but it's not until
chemical treatment of the peptides that oxidizes the cys residues to make the
disulfide bridge. But I'm unclear as to whether or not the cytoplasmic
environment of bacteria is suitible to maintain/express proteins with disulfide
bonds. Thanks for your time
