Jena Bioscience’s products include nucleosides, nucleotides and their non-natural analogs, recombinant proteins & protein production systems, reagents for Click Chemistry, for crystallization of biological macromolecules and tailor-made solutions for molecular biology and biochemistry.
In our chemistry division, we have hundreds of natural and modified nucleotides in stock. In addition, with our pre-made building blocks and in-house expertise we manufacture even the most exotic nucleotide analog from mg to kg scale.
In the field of recombinant protein production, Jena Bioscience has developed its proprietary LEXSY technology. LEXSY (Leishmania Expression System) is based on a S1-classified unicellular organism that combines easy handling with a eukaryotic protein folding and modification machinery including mammalian-like glycosylation. LEXSY is primarily used for the expression of proteins that are expressed at low yields or are inactive in the established systems, and expression levels of up to 500 mg/L of culture were achieved.
For the crystallization of biological macromolecules – which is the bottleneck in determining the 3D-structure of most proteins – we offer specialized reagents for protein stabilization, crystal screening, crystal optimization and phasing that can reduce the time for obtaining a high resolution protein structure from several years to a few days.
