Question random non-game info needed

I know how this sounds, but does anyone here know anyone in the biotech/biomed sector, preferably with a knowledge of complex peptide synthesis? tI r t3h important. Seriously, it's difficult to get things done without a lab and financial backing. I just have some questions regarding a specific protein, thought it would be worth a shot.

If you get a response this is really the greatest forum of all time.

My brother is a biotech engineer, send me the questions and I'll see if he knows the answers

fricken sweet Tee Gee!!! I need to know if there is a way to mass replicate human CD4 protein on a synthetic 'filter mesh' in a cost effective manner. It's a very simple complexity, so to speak - the implied questions are whether or not liquid phase peptide synthesis can produce CD4 protein all over a synthetic material, what is the synthetic material to use, is CD4 stable in a sterile environment (possibility of exposure to air), that kind of stuff. I will send you some of my billions if you can find this out for me

I'm assuming you are referring to the CD4 protein on the surface of T-cells. If that's the case, AFAIK, there isn't a cost effective way yet. I remember a single sample cost about $250. Synthetic surface can be used, but it is not as effective as other methods (transgenic production I believe it was). But this was from a while back when we were studying VEG16, tumour growth and HIV, so there might have been some breakthrough since then.
