Leaf Expression Systems launches first line of Hypertrans research products

The products are produced in Nicotiana benthamiana using Hypertrans, Leaf’s Agrobacterium-mediated transient expression technology. Hypertrans is efficient, safe and simple to use to quickly produce proteins, vaccines, antibodies or enzymes in plants.

The products; Bet v 1-A - Betula verrucosa (European white birch) allergen 1-A, Cowpea Mosaic Virus VLPs, Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) C1A, Human Nucleotide triphosphate diphosphatase NUDT15 (MTH2), MAb Anti-VEGF 165A, Phleum pratense (Common timothy) allergen 1 and Triosephosphate Isomerase (TPI) are all available for purchase for research purposes via its online platform.

Simon Saxby, CEO said: "We are excited to launch our first proprietary products produced in plants using Hypertrans. We will continue to add products that are difficult or uneconomical to produce using other expression systems to add to the research tools available to the life science community and which also demonstrate the extreme flexibility and capability of Hypertrans for the rapid manufacture of a wide range of biologics on commercially viable scales."
