About this book

Pichia Protocols focuses on recent developments of Pichia pastoris as a recombinant protein production system. Highlighted topics include a discussion on the use of fermentors to grow Pichia pastoris, information on the O- and N-linked glycosylation, methods for labeling Pichia pastoris expressed proteins for structural studies, and the introduction of mutations in Pichia pastoris genes by the methods of restriction enzyme-mediated integration (REMI).

This volume fully updates and expands upon the first edition of Pichia Protocols, and focuses primarily on information that has come to light since its original publication. Each chapter presents cutting-edge and cornerstone protocols for utilizing P. pastoris as a model recomibinant protein production system.

From the reviews of the second edition:

"P. pastoris has many superior traits. … can grow to very high cell densities prior to switching on an inducible promoter (the AOX1 gene) for maximal recombinant protein production. The diversity of such proteins produced by expression strains of P. pastoris is quite amazing and this book describes detailed experimental protocols for a few of them (e.g. hookworm protein, botulinum toxin). … This is a stand-alone book … . a book that will prove valuable to yeast molecular geneticists and biotechnologists." (Graeme Walker, Microbiology Today, May, 2008)
