|Abstract:||Pichia pastoris is an established host for the production of a wide range of recombinant proteins including membrane proteins. The system has a particularly good track record for the production of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Generation and screening of expression clones with this system use standard molecular biology techniques. Multiple clones can be generated and screened in a matter of a few weeks making this similar to Escherichia coli in terms of speed. In addition, basic buffer components and the lack of expensive equipment make small-scale expression screening in P. pastoris very cost-effective. Here we describe the procedures used for small-scale GPCR production screening. © 2012 Springer Science+business Media, LLC.|
