Trends in animal production's utilisation of recombinant proteins

Author(s): Reza Schipper

Recombinant technologies have made it feasible to produce a huge variety of useful proteins, including those required for animal production. Animal proteins that have a significant role in reproduction, feed efficiency, and health have received the most research attention. For the recombinant manufacture of hormones for use in reproduction and fibrolytic enzymes to improve animal performance, respectively, mammalian cells and fungus are now the favoured options. But the creation of affordable goods is a top goal, especially for livestock. The research of cell factories like yeast and bacteria has significantly increased over the past few decades, making the newly created fibrolytic enzymes and reproductive hormones a true substitute for those now on the market. New recombinant approaches for prevention and therapy, like as passive immunisation and immune system regulation, have also received significant investment. By regulating physiological functions, this presents the opportunity to cut back on the use of antibiotics while enhancing the effectiveness of infection prevention. As a result, several recombinant fibrolytic enzymes, hormones, and medicinal molecules have been effectively manufactured using efficient techniques using microbial cell factories. These molecules have improved characteristics. Nevertheless, despite significant progress in lowering protein manufacturing costs, additional measures are still needed to do so. In this regard, a big step must be taken toward the application of cutting-edge techniques, such nanotechnology, which when paired with recombinant technology would make recombinant molecules inexpensive for the animal business.
