Virus-free transient protein production in Sf9 cells

A method for virus-free transient gene expression from suspension-adapted Sf9 insect cells was developed with the gene of interest being expressed from a plasmid carrying the homologous region 5 enhancer (hr5) and the immediate early 1 (ie1) promoter from Autographa californica multicapsid nucleopolyhedrovirus (AcMNPV). Under the optimal conditions described in the study, cells were transfected at a density of 30 x 10(6) cells/mL with 0.9 mu g DNA and 1.35 mu g of linear 25 kD polyethylenimine (PEI) per million cells. Following transfection, the culture was diluted to 4 x 10(6) cells/mL for the protein production phase. The volumetric yield of tumor necrosis factor receptor (ectodomain) fused to an Fc domain (TNFR-Fc) was about 100 mu g/mL for cultures at volumes up to 300 mL. As expected, the molecular weight of the dimeric TNFR-Fc produced from Sf9 cells was about 6 kDa less than that produced from a recombinant Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell line due to differences in glycosylation between the two hosts. Transient transfection provides an alternative to the baculovirus expression vector system (BEVS) for the rapid production of recombinant proteins from Sf9 cells. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V.
