Recombinant Protein Production
Recombinant protein production in eukaryotic cells is one of the main topics of biotechnology. One of the most critical steps is the development of appropriate vectors to express the protein of interest. Bacterial Artificial Chromosomes (BACs) containing the appropriate locus can be used as expression vectors in the protein production field. In collaboration with Dr. A. Bauer, we have developed a BAC-based vector system that improves the protein production by a factor of 10 when compared to a conventional vector in stable HEK293 cell lines.
