Description Intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) are subject to post-translational modifications. This allows the same polypeptide to undertake different interaction networks with different consequences, ranging from regulatory signalling networks to formation of membraneless organelles. We report a robust method for co-expression of modification enzyme and SUMO-tagged IDP with subsequent purification procedure allowing production of modified IDP. The robustness of our protocol is demonstrated on a challenging system, RNA polymerase II C-terminal domain (CM), that is a low-complexity repetitive region with multiple phosphorylation sites. In vitro phosphorylation approaches fail to yield multiple-site phosphorylated CTD, whereas our in vivo protocol allows to rapidly produce near homogeneous phosphorylated CTD at a low cost. These samples can be used in functional and structural studies.
