Translation of ground-breaking protein expression technology
The large-scale production of synthetic (recombinant) proteins for use in research or as vaccines or therapeutics is key to supporting advances in veterinary and human medicine. These proteins can be expressed by using a specific genetic code to hijack a cell’s machinery and instructing it to make the desired protein.
PROTEIN EXPRESSION TECHNOLOGY
Many protein expression systems use mammalian, insect or yeast cells which are grown in large scale culture in a laboratory.
Ground-breaking research at the Roslin Institute developed technology to create ‘transgenic’ chickens that produce target proteins in their egg-white . Extracting the proteins from the egg-white of eggs from transgenic chickens is a relatively simple procedure resulting in a high-yield of target proteins material.
OUR ‘EGGCELLENT’ BRAND
Roslin Technologies has a commercial license from the University of Edinburgh for a suite of proteins that are produced in this way in chickens. These are part of our “Eggcellent” brand and can be used for laboratory (in vitro studies) in investigations into human and animal health. Each protein is extracted and purified under high QC conditions and batch tested for activity. To purchase these proteins, please visit our website dedicated to Eggcellent Proteins.
Improved Diagnosis of Trypanosomiasis in livestock
Trypanosomiasis is an infection caused by microscopic parasites (trypanosomes) that circulate in the blood and are transmitted by flies or in some cases from host to host.
