Optimizing productivity and growth rates of recombinant Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells requires insight into the regulation of cellular processes. In this regard, the elucidation of the epigenetic process of DNA methylation, known to influence transcription by a differential occurrence in CpG islands in promoter regions, is increasingly gaining(More)
Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells represent the most commonly used production cell line for therapeutic proteins. By recent genome and transcriptome sequencing a basis was created for future investigations of genotype-phenotype relationships and for improvement of CHO cell productivity and product quality. In this context information is missing about DNA(More)
The cellular mechanisms responsible for the versatile properties of CHO cells as the major production cell line for biopharmaceutical molecules are not entirely understood yet, although several 'omics' data facilitate the understanding of CHO cells and their reactions to environmental conditions. However, genome-wide studies of epigenetic processes such as(More)
Background Optimizing productivity and growth of recombinant Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells requires insight and intervention in regulatory processes. This is to some extent accomplished by several ‘omics’ approaches. However, many questions remain unanswered and bioprocess development is therefore still partially empirical. In this regard, the analysis(More)
Background Increasing cell specific productivity is still an important challenge in today’s production of biopharmaceuticals in mammalian cell cultures. During the last two decades various efforts were made to achieve higher yields, e.g. by optimization of process strategies, media development or cell line and metabolic engineering. Nevertheless, some(More)
Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells account for the production of the majority of biopharmaceutical molecules - however, the molecular basis for their versatile properties is not entirely understood yet and the underlying cellular processes need to be characterized in detail. One such process that is supposed to contribute significantly to CHO cell phenotype(More)
