Technology Platform for Enhanced Protein Production

"Smart Cell Technology" enabling Enhanced Protein Production

Asahi Kasei Pharma has developed over 100 proteins including enzymes for in vitro diagnostic reagents and supplied them to customers worldwide. Our proprietary protein expression technology platform, "Smart Cell Technology", has made our one and only development possible. The combination of E. coli, yeasts and our modified and constructed microbial hosts combined with our vector library consisting of a variety of promoters enables the high expression of difficult-to-express proteins in recombinant form.
Please feel free to contact us if you have troubles with the scale-up development for the commercial production of your protein or need to break away from the production using wild strains with low productivity.

Some parts of this work were supported by New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), Japan (Project code, P16009).
