Advancements in Genetic Research Creates Opportunities

Innovations in the field of genetic research have played a key role in the development mammalian transient protein expression as an efficient process. Research on the characteristics of animal cells has gained increasing importance in the zoology domain. Academic applications on genetic mutations in animals will further lead to gains in this discipline.

Market players are leveraging the growing investments into the field of genetic research and have displayed interest towards cultures of animal cells, in addition to the development of therapeutic proteins. Studies on genetic expression for plants and animals, and methods used for genetic expression in progeny continue to aid development.

Recombinant Protein Therapeutic Applications Drive Demand

Protein-based therapeutics have becoming increasingly mainstream in the pharmaceutical sector. Mammalian cells have become highly sought-after as a standard host for the development and production of therapeutic proteins, driven by post-translational folding and modifications.

Industrial laboratories have extensively invested in the development of stable cell lines for gene coding recombinant proteins in genomes. Currently, a major challenge in the development process is the massive time requirement for the isolation of high-production, stable CHO (Chinese Hamster Ovary) cell lines.

Rapid assessment of candidate r-proteins in studies leading to the development of stable cell lines is a popular solution in the industry. Transient gene expression processes are ideal for such purposes, owing to the high potential for the generation of therapeutic r-proteins within with minimal time frames. This factor is likely to have significant influence on market development.

Automation Gains Importance in Large-scale Protein Expression

Challenges associated with large-scale mammalian cell-based expression systems as an avenue for the development and production of targets in terms of insect cell expression and heterologous prokaryotic hosts are an issue for market players.

In mammalian expression systems, protein complexes, can be expressed according to native cell type, under physiological conditions. This is largely dependent on varying molecular systems working together for efficient quality control and production processes. However, large-scale expression of eukaryotic proteins in a soluble, stable forms is still an obstacle.

As a result, automated mammalian cell lines incorporating stable transfected cell lines has become mainstream in the processes of drug discovery. Automation is costlier to market players than manual alternatives owing to set up costs and consumables.

However, benefits in terms of time saved and the higher productivity mitigates these issues. A key advantage of automated systems is the reproducibility of expression and minimal risk from human error.

Key Challenges

With substantial interest by contract research organizations, the adoption of mammalian transient protein expression has gone up in the field of biotechnology on a global scale.

Market players are also likely to face growing challenges during the assessment period. Poor purification results in sub-optimal conditions is a major operational challenge.

Also, adjustments in terms of supernatant dialysis and poor media to resin ratios are issues, which has made measures such as strip-resistant nickel resins critical. Such issues require additional time and effort, which will limit market prospects through the forecast period.
