  • Patent number: 9670504
    Abstract: A transgene for endowing human quiescent cells from primary cultures with exogenously inducible telomere length homeostasis and cell cycle traverse is described. The transgene includes at least three promoter sequences; a G1-specific RNA interference sequence which is operably linked downstream of a first promoter sequence; a telomere length maintenance gene sequence which is operably linked downstream to a second promoter sequence; a Scaffold/Matrix attachment region (S/MAR) element positioned downstream in frame with said telomere length maintenance gene sequence and an exogenously-inducible transcriptional regulation system. The transgene is useful to immortalize human quiescent cells from primary cultures.

  • Publication number: 20040033562
    Abstract: The present invention is related to a recovery and purification method of (a) biological(s) of interest produced by cells retained in a bioreactor under appropriate conditions and by appropriate means for producing the biological(s) inside the bioreactor having a volume higher than 1,5 l culture, and cultivated at a high cell density, preferably at a cell density higher than 10×106 cells/ml, said bioreactor being submitted to an acoustic sonoperfusion allowing the recovery of a sonoperfused medium from said bioreactor, characterised in that it is submitted thereafter directly to an Expanded Bed Specific Adsorption for the direct recovery and uninterrupted purification of said biological(s). The present invention is also related to a process unit for recovering and purifying said biological(s) of interest.
