UCOE Expression Technology

UCOE™ (Ubiquitous Chromatin Opening Element) expression vector technology gives major improvements in gene expression in stably-transfected mammalian cells through effects on the structure of chromatin. UCOE expression technology prevents transgene silencing and gives consistent, stable and high-level gene expression irrespective of the chromosomal integration site. UCOE expression elements are small DNA elements (isolated from the area around house-keeping genes, which need to be active most of the time) that 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.
