The metabolic burden on human AGE1.HN cells imposed by the production of recombinant α1-antitrypsin (A1AT) was studied by comparing a selected high-producing clonal cell line with the parental cell line. RNA, lipid, and phosphatidylcholine fractions were higher in the producer cell line causing metabolic changes in the producer, e.g., increased glycine and(More)
This study focused on metabolic changes in the neuronal human cell line AGE1.HN upon increased ammonia stress. Batch cultivations of α(1)-antitrypsin (A1AT) producing AGE1.HN cells were carried out in media with initial ammonia concentrations ranging from 0mM to 5mM. Growth, A1AT production, metabolite dynamics and finally metabolic fluxes calculated by(More)
Metabolic responses of the new neuronal human cell line AGE1.HN to various substrate levels were analyzed in this study showing that reduced substrate and especially pyruvate load improves metabolic efficiency, leading to improved growth and α1-antitrypsin (A1AT) production. The adaptation of the metabolism to different pyruvate and glutamine concentrations(More)
Accurate determination of cell number is essential for the quantitative description of biological processes. The changes should be related to a measurable reference e.g. in the case of cell culture, the viable cell number is a very valuable reference parameter. Indirect methods of cell number/viability measurements may have up to 10 % standard deviation.(More)
