Invitrogen Launches Expression-Ready Human Gene Clones Product


CARLSBAD, Calif.--Invitrogen announced the launch of more than 500 expression-ready human gene clones as a part of its GeneStorm product line, designed to save laboratory research time to speed drug discovery, diagnostic development, and other biotechnology efforts.

The company said it plans to make more than 1,000 expression-ready human gene vectors available by the end of 1998.

The human GeneStorm collection currently consists of more than 100 recombinant kinases and human transcription factors, receptors, and other full-length open reading frames. Each gene is cloned into a versatile state-of-the-art mammalian expression vector with a polyhistidine sequence purification feature in addition to a simplified epitope tag detection feature, to facilitate functional genomics and gene analysis studies. The company first introduced GeneStorm in February with the entire 6,000-gene yeast genome in two expression-ready vector formats.
