In the present paper we describe the cloning and extracellular expression of the HIV-1 Nef (negative factor) protein utilizing the yeast Pichia pastoris, as well as the successful use of a low-temperature fed-batch strategy for decreasing end-product degradation by proteases. The nef gene in a pPICZalphaA vector was integrated into the genome of three(More)
The glycerol and methanol concentrations in Pichia pastoris fermentations were measured on-line using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and an attenuated total reflection probe. Partial least squares regression was used to obtain calibration models. The models were regressed on synthetic multi-component spectra and semi-synthetic fermentation broth(More)
In order to study and control fermentation processes, indirect on-tine measurements and mathematical models can be used. In this article we present a mathematical on-line model for fermentation processes. The model is based on atom and partial mass balances as well as on equations describing the acid-base system. The model is brought into an adaptive form(More)
Cultivations of Streptomyces peucetius in two types of medium were monitored on-line using a Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometer combined with an attenuated total reflection probe. The quantitative measurements of the glucose, starch and acetate concentrations were implemented using partial least squares calibration models. These were regressed(More)
