Mammalian cell cultures are the predominant system for the production of recombinant proteins requiring post-translational modifications. As protein yields are a function of growth performance (among others), and performance varies greatly between culture medium (e.g., different growth rates and peak cell densities), an understanding of the biological(More)
Experimental samples are valuable and can represent a significant investment in time and resources. It is highly desirable at times to obtain as much information as possible from a single sample. This is especially relevant for systems biology approaches in which several ‘omics platforms are studied simultaneously. Unfortunately, each platform has a(More)
Genome-scale metabolic reconstructions are routinely used for the analysis and design of metabolic engineering strategies for production of primary metabolites. The use of such reconstructions for metabolic engineering of antibiotic production is not common due to the lack of simple design algorithms in the absence of a cellular growth objective function.(More)
l-Alanyl-l-glutamine (also known as Ala-Gln or GlutaMAX) is widely used as a stable l-glutamine source in cell culture for the production of biopharmaceuticals. System approaches for the optimization of production processes require the analysis of all major substrates and products. We have compared four alternative detection systems for l-alanyl-l-glutamine(More)
Mass spectrometry is a powerful technique that is used to identify unknown compounds, to quantify known materials, and to elucidate the structure and chemical properties of molecules. Recent advances in the accuracy and speed of the technology have allowed data acquisition for the global analysis of lipids from complex samples such as blood plasma or serum.(More)
A major metabolic pathway for triamterene (a potassium sparing diuretic) is aromatic hydroxylation followed by sulphate conjugation. Diflunisal (a salicylate anti-inflammatory agent) also undergoes sulphate conjugation of its phenolic group as a major pathway. We investigated the possible effect of diflunisal on the elimination of triamterene (competition(More)
Little is known about the role of global phosphorylation events in the control of prokaryote metabolism. By performing a detailed analysis of all protein phosphorylation events previously reported in Escherichia coli, dynamic changes in protein phosphorylation were elucidated under three different culture conditions. Using scheduled reaction monitoring, the(More)
