AG013 is an oral mouth rinse composed of a recombinant Lactococcus lactis bacteria strain that contains the coding sequence for human trefoil family factor 1 (hTFF1), which is continually secreted by the bacteria.
Using plasmids pBHA and pCAG-EGFPd2 (a gift from Connie Cepko) (21) and Addgene plasmid # 14760 as the templates, human [beta]-globin (HBG) 5'-3'UTRs, and the coding sequence of destabilized green fluorescent protein (EGFPd2) were amplified by specific primers.
The genome contains genes, which are regions of DNA which get transcribed to RNA; in some cases this RNA is itself directly functional (things like tRNAs or the 18S component of the ribosome, for instance) but in most cases, the RNA is an mRNA, carrying a protein coding sequence which is translated by the ribosomal machinery into a covalently attached series of amino acids--a protein--which by nature of the varied side chain chemistries and their electrostatic, hydrogen bond, and hydrophobic interactions folds up to a thermodynamic energy minima state to create a functional enzyme or structural protein.
