Description of the technology

Pichia pastoris expression system introduction

The expression system of Pichia pastoris is a rapidly developed and widely used eukaryotic expression system. It is a methanol nutrition yeast and have two Alcohol oxidase (AOX) coding genes AOX1 and AOX2. The two sequences are similar to each other, but the AOX1 gene is strictly regulated by methanol induction and regulation. When methanol is the only carbon source, the AOX1 promoter can be induced by methanol and initiate the expression of ethanol oxidase, which can be metabolized by methanol. The plasmid containing the AOX1 promoter can be used to promote the expression of the target gene which encoding foreign protein.

Characteristicsofexpression strain

GS115: Both AOX1 and AOX2 gene could express AOX protein (Alcohol Oxidase), high methanol utilization, close to the wild type, belong to methanol rapid use type (Mut+).

KM71: Most AOX1 gene was knocked out, only AOX2 coding the AOX protein, the rate of using methanol is slow, belong to methanol slow use type (Muts).

different integration of the exogenous gene will cause different phenotypes of expression strains:

Common expression vectors and Tags

Signal peptide

For extracellular expression proteins, besides the signal peptide carried by the vectors, there are following signal peptides to select.

The advantages of Pichia pastoris expression system

1. Contain aspecific powerful AOX(Alcohol oxidase gene) Promoter, the expression of the exogenous gene could be strictly regulated by methanol.

2. Low cost of culture, and easily separated products. The cost of the Pichia pastoris fermentation medium is reasonable, the general carbon source is glycerol, glucose, or methanol, the rest is an inorganic salt, there is no protein in the medium, beneficial to the separation and purification of the downstream products.

3. The genetic stability of the extraneous protein gene. Exogenous genes can be integrated into the genome of Pichia pastoris with high copies, the gene is hard to lose and be able to get high expression strains.

4. As a eukaryotic expression system, Pichia pastoris has all the subcellular structures of eukaryotes, could do post-translational modifications, such as glycosylation, fatty acylation, protein phosphorylation, etc.

Classic case

Expression vector: pPIC3.5K (intracellular expression), target protein 32.49 kD (theoretical value)

Expression strain: GS115/KM71

Induction condition: Methanol concentration: 0.5%/1%, induction time 24h/48h/72h

Result analysis: From SDS-PAGE result, the expressions of target protein (40KDa after glycosylation) were observed, GS115-5#-24h, 0.5% methanol, GS115-2#-48h, 1% methanol, GS115-3#-48h, 1% methanol, KM71-1#-72h,1% methanol, each group could show significant band, indicate the target protein is successfully expressed.
