Effects of oxygen transfer on recombinant protein production by Pichia pastoris under glyceraldehyde- 3-phosphate dehydrogenase promoter were investigated. Recombinant glucose isomerase was chosen as the model protein. Two groups of oxygen transfer strategies were applied, one of which was based on constant oxygen transfer rate where aeration rate was Q(O)/V = 3 and 10 vvm, and agitation rate was N = 900 min(-1); while the other one was based on constant dissolved oxygen concentrations, C-DO = 5, 10, 15, 20 and 40 % in the fermentation broth, by using predetermined exponential glucose feeding with mu(o) = 0.15 h(-1). The highest cell concentration was obtained as 44 g L-1 at t = 9 h of the glucose fed-batch phase at C-DO = 20 % operation while the highest volumetric and specific enzyme activities were obtained as 4440 U L-1 and 126 U g(-1) cell, respectively at C-DO = 15 % operation. Investigation of specific enzyme activities revealed that keeping C-DO at 15 % was more advantageous with an expense of relatively higher byproduct formation and lower specific cell growth rate. For this strategy, the highest oxygen transfer coefficient and oxygen uptake rate were K(L)a = 0.045 s(-1) and OUR = 8.91 mmol m(-3) s(-1), respectively.

For extracellular recombinant protein production, the efficiency of five endogenous secretion signal peptides (SPs) of Pichia pastoris, SP13 (MLSTILNIFILLLFIQASLQ), SP23 (MKILSALLLLFTLAFA), SP24 (MKVSTTKFLAVFLLVRLVCA), SP26 (MWSLFISGLLIFYPLVLG), SP34 (MRPVLSLLLLLASSVLA), selected based on their D-score which quantifies the signal peptide-ness of a given sequence segment, was investigated using recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) as the model protein. The expression was conducted under glyceraldehyde-3-p...
Fed-batch methanol feeding strategy for recombinant protein production by Pichia pastoris in the presence of co-substrate sorbitol
Celik, Eda; Çalık, Pınar; Oliver, Stephen G. (2009-09-01)
Batch-wise sorbitol addition as a co-substrate at the induction phase of methanol fed-batch fermentation by Pichia pastoris (Mut(+)) was proposed as a beneficial recombinant protein production strategy and the metabolic responses to methanol feeding rate in the presence of sorbitol was systematically investigated. Adding sorbitol batch-wise to the medium provided the following advantages over growth on methanol alone: (a) eliminating the long lag-phase for the cells and reaching 'high cell density productio...
