C. Human insulin

D. All of the choices

1 Answer

D. All of the choices.

All of the options listed—human growth hormone, human interferon, and human insulin—are currently being produced using recombinant DNA technology for use in humans.

Recombinant DNA technology allows for the manipulation and production of specific genes or gene products. Through this technology, genes encoding human growth hormone, human interferon, and human insulin can be inserted into host organisms, such as bacteria or yeast, which can then produce these human proteins on a large scale.

Human growth hormone (HGH) is used to treat growth hormone deficiency and certain medical conditions. Recombinant DNA technology enables the production of synthetic human growth hormone that is identical to the naturally occurring hormone.

Human interferon is a protein that plays a crucial role in the immune response against viral infections and cancer. Recombinant DNA technology allows for the production of human interferon in large quantities for therapeutic use.

Human insulin, used for the treatment of diabetes, was one of the first recombinant DNA products developed. Recombinant DNA technology enables the production of synthetic human insulin, which is safer and more readily available than animal-derived insulin.

Therefore, all of the options listed—human growth hormone, human interferon, and human insulin—are currently being produced using recombinant DNA technology for therapeutic use in humans.
