Students learn about essential promoters and other elements necessary for successful protein expression in bacteria, including the differences between inducible and constitutive (unregulated) expression.
The Expression of a Recombinant Protein kit allows students to express a protein either constitutively or under the control of an inducible promoter, which is activated with IPTG (isopropyl-beta-D-thiogalactopyranoside).
- Teaches recombinant protein expression.
- Students learn about bacterial growth phases and inducible vectors.
