Poster Information
Abstract: Host cell protein (HCP) is a protein produced or encoded by a host cell during the synthesis of recombinant therapeutic proteins. Recombinant therapeutic proteins are usually produced by genetically modified prokaryotic or eukaryotic host cells using cell culture or fermentation techniques. Genetic engineering enables host cells to be transformed to selectively express the target protein. In the process of recombinant protein production, host cells also jointly produce proteins related to normal cell functions, such as cell growth, proliferation, survival, gene transcription, protein synthesis, and so on. Due to cell apoptosis, death, and lysis, other non-essential proteins can also be released into the cell culture medium. Summary: Host cell protein (HCP) is a protein produced or encoded by a host cell during the synthesis of recombinant therapeutic proteins. Recombinant therapeutic proteins are usually produced by genetically modified prokaryotic or eukaryotic host cells using cell culture or fermentation techniques.
