General description

CHOZN cell lines were created utilizing Sigma′s proprietary CompoZr Zinc Finger Nuclease (ZFN) technology to create genetic modifications in parental CHO-K1 cells. Cells are banked in chemically defined, animal component free EX-CELL CD CHO Fusion media

Cell Line Origin

CHOZN cell lines are all subclones of the parental CHO-K1 cell line originated by Puck in 1957.

Physical form

CHOZN cell lines are provided to customers in vials containing >7.5e6 cells/mL

Selection Process Development in a GS Knock-Out CHO Host Cell Line: The Effects of MSX Addition on Clones Generated in an MSX-Free Process

The Glutamine Synthetase (GS) expression system does not typically require multiple rounds of amplification to isolate high-producing clones (Brown, 1992).

Using Microarray Technology to Select Housekeeping Genes in Chinese Hamster Ovary Cells

In the present study, we have identifi ed species-specifi c housekeeping genes (HKGs) for Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells using data from microarray gene expression profiling.

Mgat4 May Play a Role in Increased Sialylation by Overexpressing Functional MGAT1 in Mgat1-Disrupted Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) Cells

MGAT1 adds N-acetylglucosamine to the Man5GlcNAc2 (Man5) structure. Goh et al. reported increased sialylation after restoring MGAT1 function in MGAT1 deficient CHO cells.
