What is ENDEXT® Technology

ENDEXT® technology signifies the wheat germ cell-free protein synthesis technology that was developed by Professor Yaeta Endo of Ehime University. The wheat germ extract (WEPRO®) produced by the new technology is free of translation inhibitors, and as a result, it permits remarkably stable in vitro protein synthesis: all that is needed for the synthesis is to add the target mRNA as well as the amino acids and other substrates to the reaction. The ENDEXT® technology has made it possible to produce a broad range of difficult-to-express proteins including not only those prokaryote and eukaryote but also artificial proteins.
