The Baculovirus-Infected Insect Cell as a Eukaryotic Gene Expression System

  • M. J. Fraser
Part of the Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology book series (CT MICROBIOLOGY, volume 158)


Baculovirus-infected insect cell cultures are established as an easily manipulated eukaryotic system for highly efficient expression of gene products. The system takes advantage of several unique attributes of this virus group, including highly active late gene promoters, the capacity for insertion of large fragments of foreign DNA, replication competence of the resulting recombinants, and the relative ease of handling both the insect cell cultures and the viruses.
