(2014): In Pichia pastoris, growth rate regulates protein synthesis and secretion, mating and stress response
BIOTECHNOL J. 2014; 9(4): 511-525. FullText FullText_BOKU

Protein production in yeasts is related to the specific growth rate . To elucidate on this correlation, we studied the transcriptome of Pichia pastoris at different specific growth rates by cultivating a strain secreting human serum albumin at = 0.015 to 0.15 h(-1) in glucose-limited chemostats. Genome-wide regulation revealed that translation-related as well as mitochondrial genes were upregulated with increasing , while autophagy and other proteolytic processes, carbon source-responsive genes and other targets of the TOR pathway as well as many transcriptional regulators were downregulated at higher . Mating and sporulation genes were most active at intermediate of 0.05 and 0.075 h(-1). At very slow growth ( = 0.015 h(-1)) gene regulation differs significantly, affecting many transporters and glucose sensing. Analysis of a subset of genes related to protein folding and secretion reveals that unfolded protein response targets such as translocation, endoplasmic reticulum genes, and cytosolic chaperones are upregulated with increasing growth rate while proteolytic degradation of secretory proteins is downregulated. We conclude that a high positively affects specific protein secretion rates by acting on multiple cellular processes.
