Title
Cultivation of Recombinant Chinese hamster ovary cells grown as suspended aggregates in stirred vessels
Abstract

Recombinant Chinese hamster ovary (rCHO) cells capable of producing a prourokinase mutant (mPro-uk) grown as suspended aggregates in stirred vessels were described and characterized. The addition of chitosan to a mixture of DMEM and Ham's F12 (D-MEM/F-12) medium promoted cell aggregation and spheroid formation efficiently. Multicellular aggregates formed immediately after the rCHO cells were inoculated into the chitosan-added medium, and the mean diameter of the cell aggregates reflecting the aggregate size increased with culture time, shifting from 65 to 163 μm after 2 and 9 d of culture in spinner flasks. No significant difference in the metabolism performance of the rCHO cells was observed between suspended aggregates and anchored monolayers. However, the cells cultured as suspended aggregates showed a marked decrease in growth rate as evaluated from specific growth rate (μ). Replacing D-MEM/F-12 medium with CD 293 medium caused compact spherical cell aggregates to dissociate into small irregular aggregates and single cells without apparent effects on cell performance in subcultures. The perfusion culture of the rCHO cells grown as suspended aggregates in a 2-l stirred tank bioreactor for 15 d resulted in a maximum viable cell density of 5.6×106 cells ml−1 and an mPro-uk concentration of about 2.6×103 IU ml−1, and cell viability was remained at roughly 90% during the entire run.
