Reports Outline Molecular Biology Study Findings from University of Groningen (Tools for genetic engineering of the yeast Hansenula polymorpha)

July 8, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Current study results on Life Science Research have been published. According to news reporting originating in Groningen, Netherlands, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Hansenula polymorpha is a methylotrophic yeast species that has favorable properties for heterologous protein production and metabolic engineering. It provides an attractive expression platform with the capability to secrete high levels of commercially important proteins."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the University of Groningen, "Over the past few years many efforts have led to advances in the development of this microbial host including the generation of expression vectors containing strong constitutive or inducible promoters and a large array of dominant and auxotrophic markers. Moreover, highly efficient transformation procedures used to generate genetically stable strains are now available."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Here, we describe these tools as well as the methods for genetic engineering of H."
