Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The baculovirus/insect cell expression system is a very useful tool for reagent and antigen generation in vaccinology, virology, and immunology. It allows for the production of recombinant glycoproteins, which are used as antigens in vaccination studies and as reagents in immunological assays. Here, we describe the process of recombinant glycoprotein production using the baculovirus/insect cell expression system.
