Native enzymes are the naturally occurring catalysts that help all types of biological systems perform their routine functions, such as food digestion, DNA replication, enzyme production, and more. Although these native enzymes work seamlessly in their respective biological systems, they might not be practical to be used as tools for other projects. Plus, it requires a lot of work to get the enzymes from their native source, and variability between copies of the same enzyme is common. Even a change to one amino acid can be detrimental to the enzyme's structure and ability to perform its duties. This is where recombinant protein technology comes in. If the gene sequence of the desired enzyme is known, scientists can manipulate the DNA to craft a recombinant version that has certain desired traits. The recombinant DNA is then inserted into tiny organisms, mostly yeast or bacteria, to use that cell's machinery to produce the same enzyme every time.
NECi manufactures recombinant enzymes using reagent grade sugars, salts, and buffers in a tightly controlled closed fermentation system. This guarantees lot-to-lot consistency between batches of enzymes, providing truly reagent grade analytical tools to be used in our products.
