What is Recombinant Protein Expression?

Recombinant Protein is a protein encoded by a gene- recombinant DNA- that has been cloned in a system that allows for gene expression and messenger RNA translation (see expression system). The use of recombinant DNA technology to modify the gene can result in the expression of a mutant protein.
