EnPresso® Y Defined Growth (yeast protein data)

Results of Yeast Culture (Proteins for Research)

The first tablet-based, chemically-defined growth system for yeast, EnPresso Y Defined, enables production of more protein in less time from cultures of Pichia pastoris using AOX promoters with methanol induction.

More active protein in less time

Researchers obtained similar yields obtained in 3 days using EnPresso Y Defined in a baffled Ultra Yield Flask as compared to 7 days using YPD media in a baffled shake flask. Protein expressed was Candida Antarctica lipase B (CalB) in Pichia pastoris MutS phenotype.





Significant increase in protein yield/mL culture

Researcher compared EnPresso Y Defined  with a commercially-available growth media. Protein expressed is Rhizopus oryzae lipase in Pichia pastoris.





Up to 4-fold increase in yield of active protein

Researchers compared EnPresso Y Defined with conventional buffered minimal medium. Protein expressed was Rhizopus oryzae lipase in Pichia pastoris.
