Expression systems for production of heterologous proteins

  title={Expression systems for production of heterologous proteins},
  author={Meena Rai and Harish Padh},
With the advent of our ability to clone and express a foreign gene in the heterologous host, came a remarkable capability to make almost any protein in abundant quantity to be used as therapeutic or diagnostic agents. It quickly led to the realization that proteins made in different hosts are different in many ways, particularly in their post-translation modifications. In this review a variety of available expression host systems are evaluated for heterologous production of proteins. Factors… CONTINUE READING
