[…] a number of additional software applications have been created to aid gene redesign and customization for synthesis. few of these tools were unattainable at the time of this study. these include upgene (gao et al., ), gene morphing system (gems) (jayaraj et al., ), and gene composer (lorimer et al., ). the basic functionality of these programs can be largely found in other currently […]

[…] and morphology should help to enhance our global understanding of the basis of htlv-1 particle infectivity, transmission and pathogenesis., a codon-optimized htlv-1 gag gene was designed using the upgene program [] and synthesized by genscript co. (piscataway, nj). the synthetic htlv-1 gag contains an optimal kozak consensus sequence [,] at the 5' end of the gene: gccaccatgg (start codon […]

[…] (ad5)-based vectors encoding the wildtype (adha.wt) or a codon-optimized (adha.cod) hemagglutinin (ha) gene from a/california/04/2009 (h1n1)pdm influenza virus. codon-optimization using the upgene algorithm improves expression levels of the antigen in infected mammalian cells and consequently enhances immune responses against the antigen in vivo. the generation of the recombinant […]
