Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
The stay will be focused on preparation and isolation of recombinant protein in prokaryote expression system, its characterization by SDS-PAGE and Western blot and determination of basic biochemical properties. Recombinant proteins are extensively used as a biopharmaceuticals in broad areas of current medicine. The process is initiated by experimental preparation of recombinant protein in research laboratory followed by it's characterization, before clinical testing. This initial step of biopharmaceuticals preparation will be demonstrated during the offered stay.
What is the aim of the project?
The aim of the project is the demonstration and practical training of basic procedures necessary for recombinant protein preparation.
What techniques and methods are used?
Bacteria cultivation, lysis of bacteria, protein affinity purification, SDS-PAGE, Western blot.
