The demand for recombinant proteins both for biopharmaceutical and technical applications is rapidly growing, and therefore the need to establish highly productive expression systems is steadily increasing. Yeasts, such as Pichia pastoris, are among the widely used production platforms with a strong emphasis on secreted proteins. Protein secretion is a(More)
Oxidative protein folding can exceed the cellular secretion machinery, inducing the unfolded protein response (UPR). Sustained endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress leads to cell stress and disease, as described for Alzheimer, Parkinson, and diabetes mellitus, among others. It is currently assumed that the redox state of the ER is optimally balanced for(More)
Protein production in yeasts is related to the specific growth rate μ. To elucidate on this correlation, we studied the transcriptome of Pichia pastoris at different specific growth rates by cultivating a strain secreting human serum albumin at μ = 0.015 to 0.15 h(-1) in glucose-limited chemostats. Genome-wide regulation revealed that translation-related as(More)
UNLABELLED The yeast Pichia pastoris is a widely used host for recombinant protein production. Understanding its physiology at extremely low growth rates is a first step in the direction of decoupling product formation from cellular growth and therefore of biotechnological relevance. Retentostat cultivation is an excellent tool for studying microbes at(More)
