My team established a new quick protein expression system for mammalian cells using plasmids that can replicate and maintain itself in growing culture of cells. This method bypasses a need for time-consuming cell-line development and allows rapid scale-up of protein production in mammalian cells.
My method of monitoring the bacterial cell division is based on dilution of previously expressed marker protein (GFP) and can be followed in flow cytometer. This allows detection of several sub-populations with different growth and cell division properties.
