Recombinant Protein Expression and Purification
The Recombinant Protein Expression and Purification (RPrEP) Core was established in 2009 to provide a cost-effective resource to the MGH and DF/HCC community for expression and purification of recombinant proteins necessary for pre-clinical studies as well as for basic mechanistic studies by immunologists and cancer biologists.
Recombinant Proteins can be manufactured by this Core for a variety of applications according to MGH-DF/HCC investigator needs. In addition to large-scale production of recombinant proteins in yeast Pichia pastoris, a cost effective small-scale production service will be provided using E.coli or yeast Pichia pastoris expression system (e.g. for small animal studies, use as immunogens, ELISAs, or high throughput microarray platforms).
