ROCKVILLE, Md., Feb. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- OriGene Technologies, Inc., a gene-centric life sciences company, releases the first commercially available full length human MTOR protein with superior biological activity.
MTOR is a serine/threonine protein kinase which regulates cell growth, cell proliferation, cell motility, cell survival, protein synthesis, and transcription. Purified, functional MTOR is highly desirable in high throughput functional screening assays and drug target discovery.
Produced in mammalian cells, OriGene MTOR protein maintains the most authentic protein structure compared to truncated forms of the protein produced in bacterial or insect cells. When tested in a homogeneous time-resolved fluorescent (HTRF®) assay, OriGene full-length MTOR demonstrated a high level of serine/threonine kinase activity.

To date, OriGene has released 5,000 recombinant human proteins made in HEK293 cells. This is the largest collection of full-length human proteins made in human cells. These full length human proteins are widely used in protein function studies, assay development, and high throughput screening, both in academia and industry. For many important drug targets, OriGene offers complete services from clone construction, protein expression, to monoclonal antibody and assay development.
