Yeast Protein Expression Servies

 

 

 

Expression of proteins in yeast is a common alternative to prokaryotic and higher eukaryotic expression. Yeast cells offer many of the advantages of producing proteins in microbes (growth speed, easy genetic manipulation, low cost media) while offering some of the attributes of higher eukaryotic systems (post translational modifications, secretory expression). KMD Bioscience offers comprehensive, high quality recombinant custom protein services from yeast expression systems. Our goal is to provide a flexible service program tailored to your needs every step of the way. We offer a complete ‘start to finish’ service from the cDNA (gene) cloning step to the protein purification step, and downstream modifications such as tag addition-removal, endotoxin testing/removal, conjugations, and any other services that you may request.
