The baculovirus expression vector system (BEVS) is one of the major platforms for recombinant protein production. Unlike mammalian expression systems that have long since transitioned to serum-free, chemically-defined culture media, relatively little innovation has taken place in insect expression systems, with insect cells continuing to rely on undefined, yeastolate-containing culture media that can exhibit significant lot-to-lot variability in terms of both cell growth and protein expression. Here, we present the development of a novel Sf9-based baculovirus expression system based on a high-density, chemically-defined culture medium, a high-expressing Sf9 cell line and expression enhancers that allow for the consistent production of recombinant proteins with two-fold or greater improvements in protein titers compared to traditional BEVS workflows.
