48 Protein Expression and Post-Translational Modifications

Monday, October 29, 2012: 8:30 AM
Westmoreland West (Westin )
This session will highlight advances in protein expression in a wide variety of platforms, including bacteria, yeast, insect, mammalian, and plant cells as well as cell-free expression systems. Contributions focusing on protein expression and modification in non-model cellular platforms are especially welcome, as are papers pertaining to spatially organized or scaffolded protein complexes. The session will focus on the engineering of expression hosts for improved protein expression as well as on the design of novel methods for protein display, detection of intracellular trafficking, and cell-cell communication. In addition to the focus on protein expression, the session will also include papers on the development of in vivo and in vitro techniques for improved post-translational modification of proteins, including folding, glycosylation, editing and secretion.
