Yeast, especially Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Pichia pastoris , are major hosts employed in the expression of authentic heterologous proteins of high quality in the biopharmaceutical, industrial and academic environments. There has been recent progress in characterizing and controlling the...
Phage display of proteins continues to be an important technology with a variety of applications. In the past year, advances have been made in coupling rational protein design with the power of the display selection process. In addition to the widely used filamentous phage, other bacteriophage...
The methylotrophic yeasts Hansenula polymorpha and Pichia pastoris are rapidly becoming the systems of choice for the expression of recombinant proteins in yeast. However, the powerful genetic techniques available in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe are...
Recombinant baculoviruses now represent a mature technology in which vector development, particularly for the control of expression level, has reached a plateau. However, other aspects of expression, such as the production of multiple proteins, improved product purification or maximizing protein...
The two-hybrid system is a powerful approach for examining protein—protein interactions. Recently, the utility of the system has been extended to include the genome-wide mapping of protein—protein interactions and the identification of peptide inhibitors of protein interactions. In addition,...
Sindbis virus and other alphavirus gene expression vectors have recently been used to express and study the functions of proteins and RNA, to evaluate classical vaccine and novel antiviral approaches, and for nucleic acid immunization. The vectors will likely attract continuing, innovative...
Three elements came together during the past year to provide the opportunity to generate new polyketides. The first was the availability of cloned genes for several metabolic pathways; the second was a genetically defined host strain able to support the production of polyketides; and the third...
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...
