Pichiapastoris genetically modified has been used as an efficient expression system for production of recombinant proteins. For the production of scFv anti-LDL (-) has been used the methanol inducible promoter alcohol oxidase I. During the induction phase, the conditions of culture such as temperature and concentration of methanol could affect to mitochondrial function and viability of Pichiapastoris. The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of temperature and methanol concentration on the mitochondrial function and viability of genetically modified Pichiapastoris . We evaluated five different conditions of culture: 14?C-1% (v/v) methanol (m), 14?C- 2%(v/v) m, 18?C-1.5% (v/v) m, 22?C-1% (v/v) m and 22?C-2% (v/v) m. was analyzed the mitochondrial membrane potential using 5,5?,6,6?-tetrachloro-1,1?,3,3?-tetraethylbenzimidazolcarb ocyanine iodide (JC-1) and the viability using propidium iodide by flow cytometer. The results to indicate that yeast cultured during induction phase using less 2% (v/v) methanol improve the mitochondrial function and was observed diminution of cell viability when yeast were exposed to 1.5% (v/v) or 2% (v/v) methanol. In conclusion, genetically modified Pichiapastoris require low concentration of methanol for improve the energy production source and elevated levels of methanol could induce cellular membrane damage.
