Membranproteinsynthese: Zellfrei geht’s schneller!

Abstract

Difficult to express membrane proteins represent an increasing amount of therapeutic molecules. Considerable optimization is often required for downstream applications such as assay development and functional characterization. Cell-free systems emerged as powerful tools for the synthesis of structurally and functionally divergent membrane proteins. Vesicle-based eukaryotic cell-free systems enable co-translational protein translocation and posttranslational modifications. Hence, these systems provide a multitude of options for membrane protein studies.
