Recombinant Proteins: Hopes for Tissue Engineering

Mohammad Morad Farajollahi, Sepideh Hamzehlou, Ahmad Mehdipour & Ali Samadikuchaksaraei
Proteins constitute a group of key molecules with many applications in tissue engineering. Proteins provided from natural sources have several limitations which are overcome by the use of recombinant proteins. So far, the recombinant forms of many proteins with tissue engineering applications have been developed including structural proteins, growth factors and cytokines. This technology has enabled the development of specifically designed proteins such as growth factors with matrix binding domains, and hybrid structural proteins with...
