WiSe 21/22: Membrane Protein Expression in Cell-Free Systems

Stefan Kubick

Additional information / Pre-requisites

Attention!: Participation in the lecture and seminar 216501 a, b in an earlier semester are prerequesites for the enrollment in this course!


The practical course “cell-free synthesis of membrane proteins” provides an overview on the production of functional membrane proteins. Methods for the generation of DNA- and RNA-templates suitable for transcription and translation in cell-free systems will be emphasized, with reference to prokaryotic and eukaryotic in vitro translation systems. The course covers specific case studies on “difficult-to-express” proteins. Labeling of membrane proteins by the incorporation of non-canonical amino acids will be explored in detail and the course concludes with a “hands-on-training” in the preparation of glycoproteins and posttranslationally modified membrane proteins in novel cell-free systems. This course includes pdfs to each segment.
