X promoter sequence, which is present as 1 copy in P.
X promoter sequence, which can be present as one copy in P. pastoris genome . Then, in order to identify the number of recombinant gene sequences, it was created one more primer pairPpAOX_TT_FW and Pp_AOX_TT_RV that is certainly directed towards the TT sequence with the AOX gene, that is also present in the pPICZ and also in the pPICZ plasmids and is integrated together with the gene of interest . The imply efficiency (E) on the two primer pairs was determined in line with the serial dilution MedChemExpress Acalisib strategy using gDNA extracted from both untransformed strains, starting from ng. For every single reaction, ng of template had been utilised plus the thermal cycler was programmed to carry out an initial incubation step at in the course of min then cycles ofs at , s at , s at . According to what was previously described by Nord and collaborators , the average copy quantity was calculated using the following equation:dissolved oxygen; DMSOdimethylsulfoxide; MBCOMTmembranebound catecholOmethyltransferase; MPmembrane protein; ODoptical density nm; PIpropidium iodide; P. pastorisPichia pastoris; SAMSadenosyllmethionine.

Finally, to be able to acquire the MBCOMT copy number, the AOX TT copy quantity was subtracted by to compensate for the endogenous AOX TT sequence.More filesAdditional file ANN parameters employed for the final validation model.
