in biotechnology
  1. The cellular production of the protein encoded by a particular @G02604@. The process includes @T06436@ of @D01597@, processing of the resulting @M03857@ product and its @T06475@ into an active protein.
  2. A recombinant gene inserted into a host cell by means of a @V06606@ is said to be expressed if the synthesis of the encoded protein can be demonstrated.
