Protein crystallography is a technique used to visualize protein structure and enhance understanding about protein function. The process of protein crystallography includes protein purification, protein crystallization, protein crystal mounting and protein crystallography. Protein crystallization is a process of formation of protein crystals. Protein crystallization technique helps to identify three dimensional structure of protein. Protein crystallization is used by researcher during drug discovery and development. In addition, the technique is also used in protein engineering, drug designing and other applications. Various techniques used during protein crystallization technology are ion-exchange chromatography, high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), gel-electrophoresis, x-ray crystallography and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). On the basis of methods of crystallization, protein crystallization technique includes vapor diffusion method and high through-put method. Protein crystallization technique is used in various sectors such as biotechnology, pharmaceutical, chemical industries and others.
North America has the largest market for protein crystallization followed by Europe, due to rising investments from government and private sectors, technological advancements and increasing research activities in the region. Asia is expected to show high growth rates in the next five years due to rising investment by key market players and increasing R&D activities in this region.
