Errors of heterologous protein expression.


Missense substitutions and processivity errors in the translation of heterologous proteins are expected to occur at higher frequencies than the corresponding errors of normal translation. The resulting error-containing products may overload chaperone systems. Likewise, there may be a risk of an immunogenic response to heterologous proteins introduced into vertebrates. Recent work has been carried out on the mechanisms by which such errors arise and on their occurrence in cloned, heterologous gene products.
