We have successfully expressed over 200 different proteins in insect cells
The popularity of the insect cells-baculovirus system comes from its ability to produce relatively large quantities of post-translationally modified eukaryotic proteins in a relatively short period of time and with competitive production costs.
Since the system is lytic, it is suited for both intracellular and secreted proteins, and is ideal for those with inhibitory or toxic effects on mammalian host cells.
For this reason, it has been largely used for the production of a variety of target proteins. But this lytic feature is a limitation for industrial production, for which mammalian cells are still largely preferred, particularly for therapeutic projects.
For very challenging cases, when exploring the potential of insect cells for large scale production is necessary, GTP has perfectly suited expertise and capabilities.
