UCOE® Expression Technology

Ubiquitous Chromatin Opening Element (UCOE®) technology gives major improvements in gene expression in stably transfected mammalian cells through effects on the structure of chromatin. UCOE® technology prevents transgene silencing and gives consistent, stable and high-level gene expression irrespective of the chromosomal integration site. UCOE® technology expression elements are small DNA elements (isolated from around house-keeping genes, which need to be active most of the time) which create a transcriptionally active open chromatin environment around an integrated transgene, maximizing its potential to be transcribed into protein irrespective of the position of the transgene in the chromosome.
