"We had been working on switching from petroleum-based materials to natural materials," said a Kao spokesperson. "But we now want to focus on non-edible materials to promote a more sustainable society."
"Furthermore, the present invention is also directed to triterpenoid saponins represented by the following formula (1a):"
"Selectable marker genes are useful for selecting transformants. However, such a selectable marker gene, depending on its kind, unfavorably exhibits adverse effects on the environment, such as biological pollution of a wild-type microorganism by the selectable marker gene, if the selectable marker gene remains in a host cell. In addition, if multiple gene manipulations are performed on the same host, the kind of selectable marker genes that can be used may be limited. For that reason, it is desired to develop a means for removing the selectable marker gene from the transformant."
