Description

Peter E. Vaillancourt presents a collection of popular and emerging methodologies that take advantage of E. coli's ability to quickly and inexpensively express recombinant proteins. The authors focus on two areas of interest: the use of E. coli vectors and strains for production of pure, functional protein, and the use of E. coli as host for the functional screening of large collections of proteins and peptides. Among the cutting-edge techniques demonstrated are those for rapid high-level expression and purification of soluble and functional recombinant protein and those essential to functional genomics, proteomics, and protein engineering.show more

Review quote

"...many will find it extremely useful to have this book on hand when trying to achieve high levels of pure, soluble recombinant protein; or incorporating an E. coli expression step into the procedures of functional genomics, proteomics and protein engineering." - Microbiology Todayshow more

Back cover copy

Gene expression using E. coli as a host is carried out over a wide range of disciplines in academic and industrial laboratories. In E. coli Gene Expression Protocols, Peter E. Vaillancourt presents a collection of popular and emerging methodologies that take advantage of E. coli's ability to quickly and inexpensively express recombinant proteins. The authors focus on two areas of interest: the use of E. coli vectors and strains for production of pure, functional protein, and the use of E. coli as host for the functional screening of large collections of proteins and peptides. Among the cutting-edge techniques demonstrated are those for rapid high-level expression and purification of soluble and functional recombinant protein, and those essential to functional genomics, proteomics, and protein engineering. Described in step-by-step detail to ensure robust, trouble-free results, each proven method has been written by a hands-on expert and includes extensive notes and practical tips for avoiding pitfalls. Even highly skilled researchers will find many time-saving techniques. Authoritative and highly practical, E. coli Gene Expression Protocols provides a state-of-the-art collection of tested methods for this powerful gene expression technology, offering today's investigators proven tools for success in the emerging fields of functional genomics and proteomics.show more
