You are trying to produce a mammalian protein in the bacterium Escherichia coli. To make sure you achieve the goal, what should be taken into consideration when you design the experiment?


Expert Answer

Step 1

A manipulated form of protein is known as a recombinant protein, which is produced in different ways to generate a huge concentration of proteins, to produce useful commercial components, and to modify sequences of gene. The generation of recombinant protein is performed in unique vehicles called vectors. The process involved in the generation of recombinant protein is known as recombinant technology.

Step 2

E.coli is one of the organisms of choice for the generation of recombinant proteins. It is used as its ce...
