The same animal can be subjected to BLI multiple times for up to two months from the time of delivery of the luciferase reporter construct.
A Comparative Analysis of Recombinant Protein Expression in Different Biofactories: Bacteria, Insect Cells and Plant Systems Elisa Gecchele*1, Matilde Merlin*1, Annalisa Brozzetti2, Alberto Falorni2, Mario Pezzotti1, Linda Avesani1 1Department of Biotechnology, University of Verona, Verona, Italy, 2Department of Internal Medicine, University of Perugia, Perugia, Italy In this study the expression of a target human recombinant protein in different production platforms was compared. We focused on traditional fermenter-based cultures and on plants, describing the set-up of each system and highlighting, on the basis of the reported results, the inherent limits and advantages for each platform.
