The protein expression facility functions as a training center for scientists in gene cloning and protein production. We assist in the implementation of novel, state of the art techniques, otherwise too costly and laborious for individual laboratories at the university. We offer assistance and information to all research laboratories at the Hebrew University, at other universities and at biotech companies.
The facility specializes in four major expression systems: bacterial, insect and mammalian cells and in-vitro translation. These systems supply the expression and modification requirements for a wide variety of proteins. Proteins can be expressed in their native form or designed with various tags and fusion additives for purification and characterization uses.
