CHO cells are the most frequently used host for commercial production of therapeutic proteins, and DHFR-mediated gene amplification is extensively applied to generate cell lines with increased protein production. However, decreased protein productivity is observed unpredictably during the time required for scale-up with consequences for yield, time, finance(More)
Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells are widely used in the biopharmaceutical industry. In the creation of mammalian cell lines plasmid DNA carrying the gene-of-interest integrates randomly into the host cell genome, which results in variable levels of gene expression between cell lines due to gene silencing mechanisms. In addition, cell lines often show(More)
The requirement for complex therapeutic proteins has resulted in mammalian cells, especially CHO cells, being the dominant host for recombinant protein manufacturing. In creating recombinant CHO cell lines, the expression vectors integrate into various parts of the genome leading to variable levels of expression and stability of protein production. This(More)
Therapeutic proteins require proper folding and posttranslational modifications to be effective and biologically active. Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells are by far the most frequently used host for commercial production of therapeutic proteins. However, an unpredictable decrease in protein productivity during the time required for scale up impairs process(More)
