AIM OF STUDY Tabebuia spp. (Bignoniaceae) are native to tropical rain forests throughout Central and South America and have long been used as a folk medicine to treat bacterial infection, blood coagulation, cancer and inflammatory diseases. In this study, we aimed to demonstrate the ethnopharmacological activity of Tabebuia avellanedae in various in vitro(More)
In an attempt to increase the specific thrombopoietin (TPO) productivity (q(TPO)) of recombinant Chinese hamster ovary (rCHO) cells (CHO-TPO), the effect of expression level of calnexin (CNX) and calreticulin (CRT) on q(TPO) was investigated. To control both CNX and CRT expression levels simultaneously, the Tet-Off system was first introduced in CHO-TPO(More)
Protein disulfide isomerase (PDI), one of the ER-resident molecular chaperones, forms and isomerizes disulfide bonds. This study attempts to investigate the effect of PDI expression level on specific productivity (q) of recombinant Chinese hamster ovary (rCHO) cells producing thrombopoietin (TPO) and antibody (Ab). To regulate the PDI expression level, the(More)
In an attempt to increase the specific thrombopoietin (TPO) productivity (q(TPO)) of recombinant Chinese hamster ovary (rCHO) cells (TPO-33), the effect of expression level of ERp57, an isoform of protein disulfide isomerase, on q(TPO) was investigated. To regulate ERp57 expression level, the Tet-Off system was first introduced in TPO-33 cells and stable(More)
Human thrombopoietin (hTPO) is a heavily glycosylated protein with 6 and 24 potential N- and O-glycosylation sites, respectively. To determine the effect of sodium butyrate (NaBu) on the production and quality of hTPO in recombinant Chinese hamster ovary (rCHO) cells, NaBu (0-10 mM) was added to the cultures of exponentially growing cells. NaBu addition(More)
