Four versions of tricistronic vectors expressing IgG1 light chain (LC), IgG1 heavy chain (HC), and dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) in one transcript were designed to compare internal ribosome entry site (IRES) and furin-2A (F2A) for their influence on monoclonal antibody (mAb) expression level and quality in CHO DG44 cells. LC and HC genes are arranged as(More)
From 2006 to 2011, an average of 15 novel recombinant protein therapeutics have been approved by US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) annually. In addition, the expiration of blockbuster biologics has also spurred the emergence of biosimilars. The increasing numbers of innovator biologic products and biosimilars have thus fuelled the demand of production(More)
In this paper, we present a machine learning approach that detects hedge cues and their scope in biomedical texts. Identifying hedged information in texts is a kind of semantic filtering of texts and it is important since it could extract speculative information from factual information. In order to deal with the semantic analysis problem, various(More)
Production instability currently limits the use of mammalian cells for industrial production of therapeutic proteins. We have previously reported that the loss of productivity in recombinant monoclonal antibody producing Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO-mAb) cell lines is mainly due to a decrease in heavy chain (HC) and light chain (LC) transcripts.
