Why is Pichia Pastoris a good alternative for the production of recombinant proteins?

Pichia pastoris is a methylotrophic yeast belonging to the class Ascomycetes. Found in the 1960s, its main characteristic is to use methanol as a carbon and energy source. After years of study, P. pastoris has become a model organism for genetic study, being important in the field of biological and biotechnological research. Pichia pastoris is a yeast currently widely used as an expression system for the production of recombinant proteins, both for basic research and industrial purposes,...
