Endotoxin Removal Services in Recombinant Protein

Recombinant protein is a protein obtained by using genetic recombination technology. First, a recombinant vector is introduced, a gene fragment that can be translated into a target protein is ligated to the recombinant vector, and then transferred to a host cell that can express the target protein to express a specific recombinant protein molecule. Currently, the production of recombinant proteins mainly includes four major systems: prokaryotic protein expression, mammalian cell protein expression, yeast protein expression, and insect cell protein expression. As a biopharmaceutical product, the resulting recombinant protein plays an important role in medicine. After purification of the recombinant vector plasmid, endotoxin may adversely affect some downstream applications. If the endotoxin level is high enough, it will affect the transfection process of the cell's DNA, resulting in reduced transfection efficiency.

Why should we remove endotoxin from recombinant protein?

Endotoxin is widely found in the cell walls of Gram-negative bacteria, such as E. coli. In the process of expressing recombinant protein, E. coli produces macroendotoxin. Endotoxin, as a heat source, leads to inflammatory and febrile reactions in the organism, so when the recombinant protein is used in some animal experiments, endotoxin needs to be removed in order to avoid causing adverse reactions in the animals and thus affecting the experimental results. Endotoxin may also be used for gene therapy of polypeptides and antibodies produced by recombinant proteins Applications have an adverse effect because they can cause side effects such as fever in animals and humans and endotoxemia, leading to misunderstandings of research results. In summary, it is of great significance to detect and remove endotoxin in recombinant proteins.

The general process of endotoxin removal

Endotoxin control and removal is based on the principle of endotoxin-binding peptide purification resin, which needs to be controlled from the beginning of protein preparation experiments. Practical utensils, instruments, water, reagents, and pipettes are used for endotoxin removal. At the same time, the experiments were performed in a clean room, ensuring that all levels of low endotoxin tests were achieved.
