Markers of apoptosis were followed in batch hybridoma cultures carried out in protein-free medium. Samples were collected on day 0, representing early exponential phase (viability 91%), and on day 8, corresponding to late stationary phase (viability 8%). The apoptotic index reflecting the relative number of bodies insoluble in 6 M guanidinium hydrochloride(More)
A recombinant monoclonal antibody produced by Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell fed-batch culture was found to have amino acid sequence misincorporation upon analysis by intact mass and peptide mapping mass spectrometry. A detailed analysis revealed multiple sites for asparagine were being randomly substituted by serine, pointing to mistranslation as the(More)
The iron-rich (500 microM ferric citrate) protein-free supplement was added to six different basal media. Cell growth and monoclonal antibody production of a mouse-mouse hybridoma were investigated in 1.3 1 batch cultures performed in a laboratory bioreactor with automatic control of pH and dissolved oxygen concentration. RPMI 1640 served as the control(More)
In addition to monoclonal immunoglobulin, two kinds of nucleoproteins, NP1 and NP2, were isolated from the supernatants of hybridoma cultures set up in a protein-free medium. As shown by SDS-electrophoresis the two nucleoproteins shared a set of proteins (apparent Mr 11,000 to 15,000), and differed in the DNA moiety (approximately 150 bp in NP1,(More)
Misincorporation of amino acids in proteins expressed in Escherichia coli has been well documented but not in proteins expressed in mammalian cells under normal recombinant protein production conditions. Here we report for the first time that Ser can be incorporated at Asn positions in proteins expressed in Chinese hamster ovary cells. This misincorporation(More)
Capillary zone electrophoresis with indirect UV detection was found to be suitable for the determination of organic acids in serum. Serum can be analysed directly without any deproteination in a capillary coated with linear polyacrylamide. With 10 mM epsilon-aminocaproic acid-10 mM mandelic acid (pH 3.8) as the operational electrolyte, anions such as(More)
Meteorin and Cometin (Meteorin-like) are secreted proteins belonging to a newly discovered growth factor family. Both proteins play important roles in neural development and may have potential as therapeutic targets or agents. Meteorin and Cometin are homologues and contain ten evolutionarily conserved Cys residues across a wide variety of species. However,(More)
