Trends in wheat germ cell free protein expression system with an emphasis on up-scaling and industrial application


Cell-free translation systems have developed significantly over the last 2 decades and improvements in yield have resulted in their use for in vitro protein production in the laboratory. Such cell free systems enable the expression of cytotoxic, regulatory or unstable proteins that cannot be expressed in living cells. We compare the uses of different cell-free translation systems and review recent findings that support the possibility of scaling up and thereby enhancing the industrial application of wheat germ cell free protein expression.
Keywords: Cell free biology, in vitro protein expression, scale up of translation, wheat germ extract
