Purpose of the platform (operated by EMBL)

The Eukaryotic Expression Facility at EMBL Grenoble includes:

Two biosafety level 1 labs for protein expression in insect cells via notably the MultiBac-EMBL system:

  • Introduction to baculovirus/insect cell expression
  • Introduction to MultiBac-EMBL system for multiprotein complex production
  • Providing transfer vectors and protocols for multigene expression cassette generation
  • Providing E. coli cells for composite bacmid generation
  • Providing insect cells for virus generation and amplification
  • Viral performance and protein production monitoring
  • Small, medium, and large scale expression of proteins and protein complexes

Two biosafety level 2 labs for the growth of mammalian cells, either adherent or in suspension:

  • Introduction to mammalian cell culture
  • Introduction to recombinant protein expression in mammalian cell
  • Design of constructs and generation of stable cell line (e.g. CRISPR/Cas9)
  • Providing reagents and protocols for large cargo delivery using BacMAM

In addition to all standard equipment, the platform also offers access to Light and Confocal Microscopes matching users’ needs.
