Sequence variations in recombinant therapeutic proteins

2nd International Conference on Genomics & Pharmacogenomics

September 08-10, 2014 DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Raleigh-Brownstone-University, USA

Chava Kimchi-Sarfaty

Keynote: J Mol Genet Med

Abstract :

The presentation will include our experience with coagulation-based recombinant proteins, specifically those recombinant proteins involving genetically engineered/optimized coding sequences. Recombinant therapeutics may prove advantageous over human-plasma-derived products due to decreased prion and viral contamination. The optimized and other unnatural sequences may have a significant impact on the expression, half-life, localization and physiologic function of these therapeutic proteins. The presentation will highlight possible effects of one or more synonymous or non-synonymous mutations on a broad spectrum of recombinant therapeutic proteins.
