Expression Vectors A brief introduction 


Expression vectors are the types of vectors that are used to insert gene into host cell that expresses protein (most of the times)  or mRNA transcript.

In case it we are talking about inserting insulin gene into bacterial cell we need expression vectors so that our gene efficiently transferred and then expressed into bacterial cell. 

For expression of our protein into the bacterial cell the gene utilizes hosts transcriptional and translational machinery.

Application of protease in leather industry 

The aim of biotechnology is to create safe, healthy, clean and disease free world. They are working on providing better lifestyle for the people with the innovative use of biological tools, like gene therapy for cure of heriditary disorders and use of bioremidiation for clean environment.

Industrial biotechnology is solely working on  providing the useful products and for clean environment with renewable energy sources. The use of enzymes in industrial biotechnology is just like hear to the body. Among the industrial enzymes the key enzymes are 

  • Cellulase 
  • Protease 
  • Lipase 

Among these enzymes almost 60% comprises of protease production.

Grunstein and Hogness method 

Grunstein and Hogness method also referred to as colony hybridization or nucleic acid hybridization  is a technique primarily used in molecular biology or biotechnology to screen the colony(s) from sample site. This procedure is performed in order to

1.Minimize the costly and time consuming procedures of colony pcr technique for screening of a bacterial colony.

Main theme of this procedure is the collection of the bacterial colony from sample site and then grown on nutrient media. After growth the cultures are then transferred to matrix like nitrocellulose membrane and then binding to a radioactivally labelled complementary DNA/RNA probes.
