Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, that are widely used for production of therapeutic proteins, are subjected to apoptosis and autophagy under the stresses induced by conditions such as nutrient deprivation, hyperosmolality and addition of sodium butyrate. To achieve a cost-effective level of production, it is important to extend the culture longevity.(More)
The human host cell line, F2N78, is a new somatic hybrid cell line designed for therapeutic antibody production. To verify its potential as a human host cell line, recombinant F2N78 cells that produce antibody against rabies virus (rF2N78) were cultivated at different culture pH (6.8, 7.0, 7.2, 7.4, and 7.6) and temperatures (33.0 °C and 37.0 °C).(More)
To evaluate the characteristics of a novel human cell line, F2N78, including growth performance, physicochemical properties, and biological activity via direct comparison with CHO cells. The culture performance and physicochemical properties of antibodies produced from F2N78 and CHO cells were compared. For charge variants, antibodies produced from F2N78(More)
The human cell line rF2N78 produces an antibody with a high galactosylation ratio which resembles human IgG. However, it has been observed that the aglycosylated antibody starts to appear when glucose is depleted. To determine whether glucose depletion is a main cause for aglycosylation of the antibody, fed-batch cultures of rF2N78 cells were performed(More)
