Protein engineering: emerging strategy to tackle hematological disorders

Rabina P., Anjali P., Sameer Kumar V. B. and Viji R. I.

Proteins are the coherent platform in the field of biotechnology since 1980’s. The idea of designing and construction of proteins with novel or desired functions by modifying amino acid sequences paved the way for a new research discipline called protein engineering. Owing to the development of recombinant DNA technology and high throughput screening, protein engineering launched an era of protein therapeutics, a promising solution for molecular etiologies. Being the sister discipline of protein engineering, Protein therapeutics is on the doorsteps of a therapeutic revolution. This article overviews the current status and future prospective of protein engineering in tackling various hematological disorders.
