SAFOTEST Sintesi della relazione

Project ID: QLK1-CT-1999-00651
Finanziato nell'ambito di: FP5-LIFE QUALITY
Paese: United Kingdom

Gram quantities of GNA lectin, PHA-E lectin and Bt toxin produced in microorganisms

In order to provide sufficient recombinant protein for food safety assessments, methods were developed for the high level expression and large-scale purification of recombinant protein in Pichia pastoris and Eshericia coli.

Methods were developed for the production of two lectins, GNA and PHA-E and a Bt protein cryIA(b).

Gram quantities of the proteins were produced and their authentic biologicalm activity was confirmed.
