Expression systems for use in actinomycetes and related organisms

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


There have been significant advances in genetic and molecular approaches to understanding the physiology of organisms belonging to the genera Mycobacterium, Corynebacterium, Nocardia and Streptomyces. This review discusses recent advances in heterologous protein expression in members of the actinomycete group, including codon usage, post-translational modification and inducible gene expression.
