Hyperosmotic pressure increased specific antibody productivity (q Ab) of recombinant Chinese hamster ovary (rCHO) cells (SH2-0.32) and it depressed cell growth. Thus, the use of hyperosmolar medium did not increase the maximum antibody concentration substantially. To overcome this drawback, the feasibility of biphasic culture strategy was investigated. In(More)
Previously, the expression of caspase-3 siRNA could not effectively inhibit sodium butyrate (NaBu)-induced apoptotic cell death of recombinant Chinese hamster ovary (rCHO) cells producing human thrombopoietin (hTPO). Caspase-3 siRNA expressing cells appeared to compensate for the lack of caspase-3 by increasing active caspase-7 levels. For the successful(More)
Sodium butyrate (NaBu) can enhance the expression of foreign protein of recombinant Chinese hamster ovary (rCHO) cells, but it can also inhibit cell growth and induce cellular apoptosis. Thus, the beneficial effect of using a higher concentration of NaBu on foreign protein expression in rCHO cells is compromised by its growth inhibitory and cytotoxic(More)
When sodium butyrate (NaBu) was added to serum-free suspension culture of recombinant CHO (rCHO) cells for enhanced expression of human thrombopoietin (hTPO), apoptotic cell death of rCHO cells was induced in a dose-dependent manner and hTPO quality was deteriorated in regard to sialic acid and acidic isoform contents. To overcome these problems, we(More)
Human thrombopoietin (hTPO) is a heavily glycosylated protein with 6 and 24 potential N- and O-glycosylation sites, respectively. To determine the effect of sodium butyrate (NaBu) on the production and quality of hTPO in recombinant Chinese hamster ovary (rCHO) cells, NaBu (0-10 mM) was added to the cultures of exponentially growing cells. NaBu addition(More)
In this study, we systematically compare two vector design strategies for recombinant monoclonal antibody (Mab) synthesis by Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells; a dual open reading frame (ORF) expression vector utilizing separate cytomegalovirus (CMV) promoters to drive heavy chain (HC) and light chain (LC) expression independently, and a single ORF vector(More)
PURPOSE Oxytocin is associated with the ability to form normal social attachments. c-Fos is an immediate early gene whose expression is used as a marker for stimulus-induced changes in neurons. The effect of phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE-5) inhibitors on oxytocin activation in the brain without sexual stimuli has not yet been reported. In the present study, we(More)
