Methods for Producing Substantially Homogeneous Hybrid Or Complex N-glycans in Methylotrophic Yeasts
The present invention provides methods for effectively and efficiently converting methylotrophic yeast's heterogeneous high mannose-type N-glycosylation to mammalian-type N-glycosylation by disruption of an endogenous glycosyltransferase gene (OCH1) and step-wise introduction of heterologous glycosidase and glycosyltransferase activities. Each engineering step includes a number of stages: transformation with an appropriate vector, cultivation of a number of transformants, performance of sugar analysis and heterologous protein expression analysis, and selection of a desirable clone. The selected clone is then subjected to the next engineering step.
