Method for Enhancing Recombinant Antibody Production (SJ-08-0032)

St. Jude Reference #SJ-08-0032


A method for enhancing recombinant antibody production by co-expressing a recombinant antibody with the ERp23 protein. The ERp23 protein facilitates oxidative folding and stability of the recombinant antibody which enhances its production. This invention may be used in the production of therapeutic antibodies.
