Recombinant Protein Expression

Proteins play an important role in infectious diseases. They not only take over central functions in the invasion and replication of pathogens, but also in the defensive reaction of our body or as a drug. For a detailed investigation of proteins, scientists often require them in large amounts and extremely pure state. Read more about how proteins are artificially produced and purified.

  • EHEC-Forschung an der molekularen Basis – Wissenschaft jenseits des Mainstream
    EHEC hat in den letzten Monaten viele Opfer gefordert und ist zu einer zweifelhaften Berühmtheit geworden. Jenseits dieser Prominenz forschen Wissenschaftler am HZI schon seit Jahren an den Mechanismen, mit denen uns diese Bakterien krank machen. Begleiten Sie Jens de Groot in sein Labor und hören Sie zu, wie er Kristalle mit Röntgenstrahlen beschießt...
  • Viel Insulin für wenig Geld – Helmholtz-Wissenschaftler stellen eine neue Produktionsmethode frei ins Internet
    Etwa 285 Millionen Menschen leiden weltweit an Diabetes. Die meisten von ihnen leben in Ländern, in denen das patentgeschützte industrielle Insulin unbezahlbar ist. Doch nun laufen diese Patente aus. Am Helmholtz-Zentrum für Infektionsforschung haben Wissenschaftler nun eine kostengünstige Methode entwickelt, um Insulin herzustellen – und haben sie frei zugänglich ins Internet gestellt. Ursula Rinas erzählt Ihnen, wie sie und ihre Kollegen das geschafft haben – und welche Probleme sie dabei hatten. Hören Sie rein...
