Maleate is one of the most important dicarboxylic acids and is used to produce various polymer compounds and pharmaceuticals. Herein, microbial production of maleate is successfully achieved, to our knowledge for the first time, using genetically modified Escherichia coli. A synthetic pathway of maleate is constructed in E. coli by combining the polyketide biosynthesis pathway and benzene ring cleavage pathway. The metabolic engineering approach used to fine-tune the synthetic pathway drastically improves maleate production and demonstrates that one of the rate limiting steps exists in the conversion of chorismate to gentisate...

Cell-free protein synthesis is a useful method for preparing proteins for functional or structural analyses. However, batch-to-batch variability with regard to protein synthesis activity remains a problem for large-scale production of cell extract in the laboratory. To address this issue, we have developed a novel procedure for large-scale preparation of bacterial cell extract with high protein synthesis activity. The developed procedure comprises cell cultivation using a fermentor, harvesting and washing of cells by tangential flow filtration, cell disruption with high-pressure homogenizer and continuous diafiltration...

In this study, an astaxanthin-biosynthesis Kluyveromyces marxianus strain Sm23 was first constructed, which could produce 31µg/g DCW astaxanthin. Then, repeated genome integration of the key astaxanthin biosynthesis genes Hpchyb and bkt was done to increase gene copy number and astaxanthin yield. Four improved strains were obtained and the yield of astaxanthin and the total yield of carotenoids in a strain increased with the copy numbers of Hpchyb and bkt. To improve the yield further, the gene Hpchyb from Haematococcus pluvialis was modified by site-directed mutagenesis to increase the enzyme efficiency or/and to prevent the heterologous protein degradation by ubiquitination...

The techniques for enhancing butanol production in ABE fermentation by Clostridium acetobutylicum generally focus on adding electron carrier to strengthen NADH synthesis, repressing hydrogenase by aerating CO, supplementing butyrate, etc. However, those methods suffer from the problems of total solvent decrease, high purification cost, using expensive supplemental substances, etc. In this study, we added small amount of electron receptors (Na2SO4/CaSO4, 2g/L) into ABE fermentation broth: to alter electron/proton distributions in the intracellular electron transport shuttle system, directing more electron/proton pairs into NADH synthesis route; to stimulate intracellular accumulation of those amino acids favorable for cells survival/butanol synthesis...

In this report, a method for a simultaneous production and separation of a microbially synthesized rhamnolipid biosurfactant is presented. During the aerobic cultivation of flagella-free Pseudomonas putida EM383 in a 3.1L stirred tank reactor on glucose as a sole carbon source, rhamnolipids are produced and excreted into the fermentation liquid. Here, a strategy for biosurfactant capture from rhamnolipid enriched fermentation foam using hydrophobic-hydrophobic interaction was investigated. Five adsorbents were tested independently for the application of this capture technique and the best performing adsorbent was tested in a fermentation process...

Phytosterols, generated as a by-product of vegetable oils or wood pulp, contain the cyclopentane-perhydro-phenanthrene nucleus, and can be converted into steroid intermediates by removing the C17 side chain. This chapter shows the scale-up, from flask to fermentor, of the phytosterols bioconversion into 4-androstene-3,17-dione (androstenedione; AD) with Mycobacterium neoaurum B-3805. Due to the fact that phytosterols and AD are nearly insoluble in water, two-phase systems and the use of chemically modified cyclodextrins have been described as methods to solve it...

7,8-Dihydroxyflavone (7,8-DHF) has been conjugated with glucose moiety to produce glucoside derivatives. Three analogues of 7,8-DHF (7-O-β-d-glucosyl-8-hydroxyflavone, 7-hydroxy-8-O-β-d-glucosyl flavone, and 7,8-di-O-β-d-glucosylflavone) have been successfully produced from in vitro reaction using glycosyltransferase of Bacillus licheniformis. Production of these 7,8-DHF derivatives were shifted to cheaper and easier approach in this study by using engineered Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3) ΔpgiΔzwfΔushA cells in which the flow of glucose-6-phospahte toward glycolysis and pentose phosphate pathway and hydrolysis of UDP-α-d-glucose were blocked while directing the carbon flux toward UDP-α-d-glucose by overexpressing UDP-α-d-glucose pathway genes...
