●Recombinant proteins used in medical practice which are obtained from the recombinant DNA technique .
●In this technology a particular gene is transferred from one organism to another organism with the help of vectors and restriction enzymes which act as molecular tools.
● 10 recombinant proteins are –
1 .Interferon-α – In treatment of chronic hepatitis C
2.Insulin- In the treatment of type I diabetes mellitus
3.Interferon-β – Use to treat herpes and viral enteritis
4.Interferon B – In the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis
5.Antithrombin III- Blood-clot prevention
6.Human recombinant growth hormone – To promote growth in an individual
7.Coagulation factor VIII- In the treatment of haemophilia A
8.Coagulation factor IX – In the treatment of haemophilia B
9.DNAse I – In the treatment of cystic fibrosis
10.Tissue plasminogen activator- In the treatment of acute myocardial infections .
