In view of the above, an expression system is needed that is usable in an eukaryotic cell extensively autologous with respect to sugars, amino acids and that is extensively independent of growth factors. It has been shown that plant cells, in particular microalgae cells, can be used for the production of recombinant proteins and overcome most of the above problems.
Microalga cultures are comparably easy to handle and, in principle, scalable to large production scales. Furthermore, microalgae merely require a slightly salty aqueous environment, CO2 and light, can be supplemented by simple carbon sources, or a combination of these strategies to grow rapidly and produce the recombinant protein of interest. Therefore, the cultivation of microalgae is relatively inexpensive. These cultures can be extensively free of sugars and amino acids. The use of solar energy to produce biomass and recombinant protein production is an attractive aspect of these cells in light of the goal of sustainability.
Unfortunately, the efficient production of recombinant proteins in microalgae is hampered because of the tightly regulated gene expression, preference for certain nucleic acid codon usage, and bias to its own promoters.
The present invention allows to overcome these problems with highly efficient production and direct secretion of target polypeptides into the medium and in addition enables simultaneous monitoring of the polypeptide production without disturbing the expression system.
This system has in principle a large range of applications and may be used due to the safe organism for researchers, pharmaceutical targets and food and feed producers.

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.
Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
