Characterization and purification of human fos protein generated in insect cells with a baculoviral expression vector.


We generated recombinant baculoviruses that contained the human fos gene and that, upon infection of insect cells, synthesized fos protein. The quantity of fos protein produced was at least 10 to 20 times higher than that observed in any mammalian cells reported so far. The fos protein made in insect cells manifested most of the characteristics of mammalian… (More)
