Although E. coli is the most prominent bacterial production host for recombinant proteins, some proteins with high economic potential can still hardly be produced at remunerative levels. We selected four different Fabs (Fragment, antigen binding) (BIBH1, BIWA4, CIMZIA and FabX) with identical constant domains representing such challenging proteins. Fab yield can be affected by miss-folding, aggregation or unbalanced expression, translation and translocation levels of sub-units, making it still challenging to efficiently design expression systems and production processes. For translocation to the periplasm a post-translational (ompA) and a co-translational (dsbA) leader sequence were used. E. coli BL21(DE3) and E. coli HMS174(DE3) were transformed either via pET vectors or genome integration. The resulting 32 clones, were cultivated under fed-batch like conditions in the BioLector. Cell growth was not affected by leader/Fab combinations but yield of correctly folded Fab ranged from 0 to 12.5 mg/g CDM. Higher expression rates caused higher amounts of free light chain and K12 strain reached higher yields. Except of CIMZIA with the dsbA leader, genome integrated versions showed higher Fab yields, reduced levels of free light chain and basal expression than plasmid-based systems. Independent from used expression system, highest yields were obtained with CIMZIA followed by BIWA4, BIBH1 and FabX. Leader sequence cleavage-efficiency for DsbA was significantly lower than for OmpA, both showed lowest with CIMZIA. Summarizing, we showed that the selected set of host/gene dosage/leader/Fab combinations resulted in a broad range of variation in terms of Fab yields and processing and will be studied detailed in bench-scale fermentations.
