Hi Ginnie,

I have been working with the Pichia expression system now for about five
months and so far nothing.  I am trying to express human Glutamine
Cyclotransferase (QC).  This is a 33kD protein.  I'm not sure if
there is something wrong with my construct or what, but I have been
unsuccessful thus far.  Maybe something good will happen soon!! I feel
like you do, the kit looks good on paper, but I am not conviced yet.
