Research output: Patent


Batch and continuous-flow cell-free methods for synthesizing protein wherein translation is coupled with replication of recombinant mRNA by an RNA-directed RNA polyerase, such as Qβ replicase. Transcription of a DNA template to produce the recombinant mRNA can be coupled additionally with coupled transcription-replication-translation methods, both batch and continuous. The invention also includes kits of reagents for synthesizing user-selected proteins according to methods of this invention.
