The methylotrophic yeast Pichia pastoris has been widely reported as a suitable expression system for heterologous protein production. The use of different phenotypes under PAOX promoter, other alternative promoters, culture medium, and operational strategies with the objective to maximize either yield or productivity of the heterologous protein, but also(More)
To improve the specific production rate of Rhizopus oryzae lipase (ROL) in Pichia pastoris, a protein that triggers the unfolded protein response in P. pastoris, the effect of sorbitol/methanol mixed substrates was tested in batch and fed-batch cultures. Remarkably, a different substrate consumption behaviour was observed depending on the host's phenotype(More)
In this work a systematic study of the influence of methanol set-point and sorbitol feeding rate in fed-batch operation with a Pichia pastoris Mut(s) strain producing Rhizopus oryzae lipase is presented. Different experiments were made at a constant methanol set-point of 0.5, 2 and 4gl(-1), controlled by a predictive algorithm at two different sorbitol(More)
A predictive control algorithm coupled with a PI feedback controller has been satisfactorily implemented in the heterologous Rhizopus oryzae lipase production by Pichia pastoris methanol utilization slow (Mut(s)) phenotype. This control algorithm has allowed the study of the effect of methanol concentration, ranging from 0.5 to 1.75 g/L, on heterologous(More)
The Pichia pastoris expression system is widely used for the production of recombinant proteins. A simple and efficient experimental set-up allowing on-line monitoring of the methanol concentration during the fermentation of P. pastorisbased on the detection of the methanol vapor concentration in the exhaust air from fermenter by a tin dioxide (SnO2)(More)
