Proteins are fundamental drivers of biological systems. They provide structure, catalyze metabolic reactions, instigate responses to stimuli, and facilitate transport and communications. To study proteins, scientists need access to them.
Ideally, scientists would use purified native proteins for their experiments. However, for various reasons, it is not always possible to access proteins produced under native environments, in natural models, and by natural mechanisms.
Recombinant systems provide scientists with a simple, rapid, reproducible, and scalable supply of purified material for their investigations.
