(Re)Discovering Protein Expression Platforms

January 13, 2025


How best to express? The demand for high-quality recombinant proteins has never been greater. Thus, selecting a host expression platform is the crucial step in recombinant protein production. Additionally, the biological characteristics of the requested recombinant protein and, to a lesser extent, the planned downstream applications dictate this selection, as well. Finally, choosing the expression platform that is the most familiar, without regard to its suitability for the desired protein of interest may not be optimal. Using an inappropriate system can have serious implications for the expression levels, solubility, and functionality of the recombinant protein required, making the choice of host platform a first essential step in the optimization process. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s (Re)Discovering Expression Platforms symposium convenes protein expression specialists who share their experiences, strategies, selection process, and success.
