|Title:||Heteropolymeric protein production methods|
|Abstract:||Cultured mammalian cells transfected with new vectors comprising full-length or partial .alpha. and .beta. subunit genomic DNA sequences produce significantly higher levels of dimeric glycoprotein hormone than do cells transfected with .alpha. and .beta. subunit cDNA sequences. In cases where only the cDNA clones are available, the cDNA sequences can be used in new expression vectors comprising introns or other important genomic regions from a homologous or heterologous source.|

The estimated expiration dates shown above are derived by simply adding 20 years to the priority date.
Due to the complexity of determining patent expirations even in a single country, compounded by the diversity of global patent laws, it is advisable to have patent counsel verify freedom to operate.
