Patent
Novartis and Glykos Finland Oy | Date: 2014-07-03

The present disclosure relates to compositions and methods useful for the production of heterologous proteins with reduced O-mannosylation in filamentous fungal cells, such as Trichoderma cells. More specifically, the invention provides a PMT-deficient filamentous fungal cell comprising a) at least a first mutation that reduces an endogenous protease activity compared to a parental filamentous fungal cell which does not have said first mutation, and, b) at least a second mutation in a PMT gene that reduces endogenous O-mannosyltransferase activity compared to a parental filamentous fungal cell which does not have said second mutation, wherein said filamentous fungal cell is selected from the group consisting of Trichoderma, Neurospora, Myceliophthora or Chrysosporium cell.

The present disclosure relates to compositions and methods useful for the production of heterologous proteins with increased N-glycosylation site occupancy in filamentous fungal cells, such as Trichoderma cells. More specifically, the invention provides a filamentous fungal cell comprising i. one or more mutation that reduces or eliminates one or more endogenous protease activity compared to a parental filamentous fungal cell which does not have said mutation(s), ii. a polynucleotide encoding a heterologous catalytic subunit of oligosaccharyl transferase, and iii. a polynucleotide encoding a heterologous glycoprotein, wherein said catalytic subunit of oligosaccharyl transferase is selected from Leishmania oligosaccharyl transferase catalytic subunits.

The invention describes specific sialylated structures present on human stem cells and cell populations derived thereof. The invention is especially directed to methods to control the status of stem cells by observing changes in sialylation of the cells; and control of potential contaminations of biological materials; and reagents and methods used in connection with the cells in order to avoid alterations of the cell glycosylation by contaminating materials. The invention is further directed to novel stem cells, the glycosylation of which has been specifically altered.
