1.Streptomyces as host for heterologous protein production. It has aldready proven that Streptomyces is a good choice for heterologous protein production and can be an invaluable host for eukaryotic proteins. Some of these heterologous proteins are secreted as biologically active compounds in commercially significant yield using expression/secretion signals we have isolated (EP0851931A), they can easily be purified and have the same ...

The laboratory for Genetics and Microbiology works on selected model systems which appear suitable to approach general questions of molecular biology. The main emphasis is on mechanisms of regulation in prokaryotes (model Bacteria as Escherichia coli and extremophilic Bacteria and Archaea). The pursuit of these objectives has produced acknowledged contributions in the fields of DNA-protein interactions, the mechanisms of chromosomal ...
