Overview of Protein Refolding

Overview of Protein Refolding Recombinant protein expression technology is widely used in protein functional research. Heterologous gene expression commonly leads to production of inclusion bodies. To obtain soluble protein, inclusion bodies must be refolded into an active form through refolding methods. Refolding is initiated by reducing the concentration of denaturant to solubilize inclusion bodies. What […]

Chemical Protein Synthesis Definition

Chemical Protein Synthesis Definition Chemical protein synthesis is named in contrast to the biological protein synthesis. The synthesis is by coupling the carboxyl group or C-terminus of one amino acid to the amino group or N-terminus of another. It is also called peptide synthesis, because the length of synthesized amino acid sequence is limited by current […]

High Cell Density Fermentation Technology

High Cell Density Fermentation Technology High cell density fermentation by fed-batch strategies is one of the most cost-effective means of achieving high yields for the production of large scale recombinant proteins in the bio-industry. In fed-batch cultures, cell mass and productivity are maximized by adjusting culture conditions, including temperature and pH, the composition of the […]

Soluble Protein Test Introduction and Method

Soluble Protein Test Introduction and Method Pure, soluble and functional proteins are of high demand in modern biotechnology. Natural protein sources rarely meet the requirements for quantity, ease of isolation or price and hence recombinant technology is often the method of choice. Recombinant cell factories are constantly employed for the production of protein preparations bound for downstream purification […]

Recombinant Protein Definition

Recombinant Protein Definition Recombinant protein is a manipulated form of protein, which is generated in various ways to produce large quantities of proteins, modify gene sequences and manufacture useful commercial products. The formation of recombinant protein is carried out in specialized vehicles known as vectors. Recombinant technology is the process involved in the formation of […]
