vector for human insulin production
by: Rashmi Chowdhary

The insulin mRNA from several other mRNAs is separated from beta-pencreatic cell; is used as a template for the synthesis of human insulin cDNA by Reverse Transcription. cDNA contains all the coding regions of the insuline gene. cDNA is cloned into plasmid vector for in vivo amplification.

vector carrying the gene
