Evaluation of expression systems of recombinant human interferon gamma

This thesis aimed to lower the cost of production by using cheap C1 carbon sources from agricultural activities for the cultivation of transformed yeast and assess the therapeutic efficacy of recombinant hIFNγ in its glycosylated and non-glycosylation form from different expression systems against ovarian cancer cells.

Optimizing secretory expression of recombinant human interferon gamma from Kluyveromyces lactis

Rec recombinant human interferon gamma (IFNG) was expressed for the first time in Kluyveromyces lactis expression system and its expression was optimized by varying growth parameters and carbon source concentration with the aim of increasing recombinant protein production level.

Coexpression of Kex2 Endoproteinase and Hac1 Transcription Factor to Improve the Secretory Expression of Bovine Lactoferrin in Pichia pastoris

Kex2 and Hacl overexpression driven by methanol-induced promoter alleviated the bottleneck in the folding and secretion pathways and greatly improved the secretory expression of rbLf in Pichia pastoris.

Pichia pastoris: A highly successful expression system for optimal synthesis of heterologous proteins

P. pastoris expression system is one of the most popular and standard tools for the production of recombinant protein in molecular biology and is also considered a unique host for the expression of subunit vaccines which could significantly affect the growing market of medical biotechnology.

Dual-substrate inhibition kinetic studies for recombinant human interferon gamma producing Pichia pastoris

Different substrate inhibition models were fitted to the growth kinetic data and the additive form of double Webb model was found to be the best to explain the growth kinetics of recombinant P. pastoris.

Pichia pastoris as a biological platform to produce recombinant proteins: relevance for development of biotechnological products in Colombia

The most important aspects related to the production of recombinant proteins are examined, by using P. pastoris as a model, from the most common expression strategy, to the aspectsrelated to the cultivation at bioreactor scale and, by yielding high-value products.

Application of medium optimization tools for improving recombinant human interferon gamma production from Kluyveromyces lactis

Optimization of medium components viz., lactose, yeast extract, and trace elements were performed with Box–Behnken design and artificial neural network linked genetic algorithm (ANN-GA) for maximizing biomass of recombinant K. lactis biomass which in turn increased hIFN-γ concentration.

Comparative genome‐scale analysis of Pichia pastoris variants informs selection of an optimal base strain

Komagataella phaffii, also known as Pichia pastoris, is a common host for the production of biologics and enzymes, due to fast growth, high productivity, and advancements in host engineering. Several



Expression, purification and characterization of human interferon-γ in Pichia pastoris.

The results demonstrated that the experimental procedures developed are capable of producing a large quantity of active rhIFN-γ from P. pastoris.

Increased expression and secretion of recombinant hIFNγ through amino acid starvation-induced selective pressure on the adjacent HIS4 gene in Pichia pastoris

This is the first study demonstrating that amino acid starvationinduced selective pressure on HIS4 can alter the regulation pattern of adjacent genes in P. pastoris, suggesting that these adjacent genes are transcriptionally co-regulated and their expression is synchronised.

Enhanced expression of codon optimized interferon gamma in CHO cells.

Expression of Recombinant Human Interferon-γ with Antiviral Activity in the Bi-Cistronic Baculovirus-Insect/Larval System

Findings suggest that this IRES-based expression system is a simple and inexpensive alternative for large-scale protein production in anti-viral research.

Evaluation of Mut+ and MutS Pichia pastoris phenotypes for high level extracellular scFv expression under feedback control of the methanol concentration.

Extracellular secretion of over 4 g·L−1 of the A33 scFv antibody fragment was achieved in Pichia pastoris at the 10 L bioreactor scale using minimal medium and feedback control of the methanol

Deletion of the Pichia pastoris KU70 Homologue Facilitates Platform Strain Generation for Gene Expression and Synthetic Biology

The use of the ku70 deletion strain for fast and simple screening of genes in the search of new auxotrophic markers by targeting dihydroxyacetone synthase and glycerol kinase genes will further support protein production strain generation and synthetic biology using P. pastoris strains as platform hosts.

The macroheterogeneity of recombinant human interferon-gamma produced by Chinese-hamster ovary cells is affected by the protein and lipid content of the culture medium.

The results reported emphasize the necessity of considering the effects of culture media on product quality as well as on product quantity during process optimization.

Expression and Characterization of a Recombinant Endoglucanase From Western Corn Rootworm, in Pichia pastoris

The Dvv-ENGase I gene was cloned into the integrative plasmid pPICZ&agr;A under the control of AOX1, which is a methanol-inducible promoter, and the recombinant endo-1,4-ß-glucanase (ENGase) was able to digest the substrates: hydroxyethyl cellulose, carboxymethyl cellulOSE, and Whatman No. 1 filter paper.
