Previously, we described the genetic construction Super- CHO, a cell line capable of autocrine growth under fully defined protein-free conditions. Super-CHO cells constitutively express insulin growth factor-I (IGF-I) and transferrin in sufficient amounts to support long-term, stable growth without the addition of exogenous growth factors, thus making it an ideal host for the production of recombinant biopharmaceuticals. although IGF-I has been successfully expressed in Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells, the long term effects of recombinant IGF-I expression have not been explored. In particular, the expression of the endogenous IGF-I receptor in response to IGF-I production has not been repo..
