Leadartis reports an efficient method for production of Trimerbody® molecules in Pichia Pastoris


In collaboration with prestigious academic institutions, LeadArtis´scientists demonstrated that single-chain fragment variable (scFv)-based N-terminal Trimerbody® molecules can be efficiently produced in the methylotrophic yeast Pichia pastoris (P. pastoris) in a trimeric fully functional active form. The yield of scFv-based N-terminal Trimerbody® molecules expressed in P. pastoris was about 20-fold higher than in mammalian cells. New marketed therapeutic proteins produced in Pichia evidence the rising interest of P.
