Summary of the technology

The use of chymosins for the production of cheese and cheese derivatives from milk has been known for years, and nowadays this technique has completely substituted the use of calf rennet. Biochemize SL has developed several recombinant yeast and bacteria strains able to express chymosins from bovine (chymosin A and chymosin B) and from camel origin, with very good expression levels (between 0,1 and 3 g/L) and activity.

Details of the Technology Offer

Biochemize SL has developed several recombinat strains from the genres Kluyveromyces, Pichia, Aspergillus and Corynebacterium (all approved by fod regulations) that can express the genes that encodes for the enzymes chymosin A and chymosin B from bovine origin, and chymosin from camel origin. All of therm show very good expression levels (between 0,1 and 3 g/L) and activity; and the enzymes obtained are very active (between 220 - 350 IMCU/ mL, International Milk Clotting Units)
