|Title:||Influence of culture conditions on recombinant Drosophila melanogaster S2 cells producing rabies virus glycoprotein cultivated in serum-free medium|
|Abstract:||The recombinant G glycoprotein from the surface of the rabies virus (RVGP) is a promising candidate as a rabies vaccine component and also for diagnostic purposes. In this study, RVGP production by transfected Drosophila melanogaster S2 cells cultivated in a serum-free medium (Supplemented IPL-41 medium) was carried out. The effects of pH and pO(2) were evaluated in batch culture in parallel spinner flasks. The use of a pH equal to 6.3 and a pO(2) of 40% air saturation resulted in the highest RVGP content. These conditions were also used in fed-batch mode, yielding a RVGP content level of 98 g/10(7) cells. The main nutrients consumed were glucose, glutamine, asparagine, serine and proline and the major metabolites produced were alanine and ammonia, according to the metabolism studies performed. Since RVGP is a transmembrane protein, two different methods for protein recovery were assessed and compared. Detergent-based cell disruption showed to be more effective than mechanical disruption with glass beads for glycoprotein recovery. (C) 2008 The International Association for Biologicals.
