Fungal Fermentation

Fungal fermentation systems include yeast and filamentous fungal cells based on cell morphology and culture conditions. Yeast fermentation is the most economical eukaryotic expression system for scale up production of both secreted and intracellular proteins that require post-translational modifications, including humanized antibodies. Yeast fermentation has been used in the production of chemical precursors, or even wastewater processing. In addition, yeasts' uses also extend to other products of high interest such as the generation of fuel from vegetable sources. Filamentous fungal fermentation has gained increasing attention because of the diversity of microbial products and robust production of some of the most value-added commodities.

Fungal Fermentation

Microbial Expression Systems

Yeast expression systems allow efficient production of secreted and intracellular targets. In addition, yeast provides the advantage of post-translational modifications, which may be beneficial for some recombinant proteins. Various host cells and vectors are available for yeast expression. We also have some robust secretion signal sequences to ensure the highest secretion of proteins. Filamentous fungi are considered as unique cell factories for protein production due to the high efficiency of protein secretion and superior capability of post-translational modifications. Various genetic engineering strategies are applied for enhancing protein expression and secretion in filamentous fungi.

  • Codon optimization, gene synthesis, subclone gene of interest into expression vector
  • Transforming fungal strains
  • Screening and strain creation
  • Expression evaluation and optimization
  • Pilot-scale protein expression and purification
  • Large-scale protein expression and purification (culture volume up to 10,000L)
  • Process Development

With years of experience in microbial fermentation, one of our core areas of expertise is the development of large-scale processes for recombinant protein expression in microbial hosts. Now customers can flexibly choose an option that fits their requirements, from codon optimization to gene synthesis to small-scale testing and scale-up, together with protein purification and characterization.
