Welcome to our project This page is under construction
The overexpression of recombinant proteins in E. coli often end up in inclusion bodies. Our project set out to investigate on how to prevent them. By using different chaperone systems, which are proteins that assist protein folding, protecting or disaggregating them during stress, a better yield of recombinant proteins can be achieved. Different combinations of these chaperone systems can have different results regarding the folding and aggregation of recombinant proteins. By testing combinations of these systems on hard-to-fold and aggregation prone proteins, a good understanding on how to prevent inclusion bodies can be obtained.
