Metabolic Engineering for Bioprocess Commercialization by Stephen Van Dien

By Stephen Van Dien

This quantity stories the present metabolic engineering instruments and applied sciences from a pragmatic perspective, and courses researchers as they conquer demanding situations at a variety of phases of organism and bioprocess improvement. Microbes were engineered to supply various business items comparable to fuels, easy chemical substances, high-quality chemical compounds, dietary vitamins, and pharmaceutical intermediates, and new instruments similar to gene synthesis, complex cloning thoughts, ‘omics’ research, and mathematical modeling have enormously sped up the speed of innovation within the box. Written by way of prime specialists within the box from either academia and undefined, key issues contain man made biology, pathway engineering, metabolic flux manipulation, adaptive evolution, and fermentation method scale-up. it really is appropriate for non-specialists, and is a important source for somebody embarking at the fascinating route to harnessing the metabolic strength of microorganisms.

Developed a growth-coupled strategy to detect Ter variants with higher intracellular activity (Shen et al. 2011). The method used an E. coli host that lost anaerobic growth due to NADH surplus caused by deletions of multiple fermentation pathways. Since Ter is a NADH-dependent enzyme, a mutant with 3 Heterologous Pathway Engineering 47 higher catalytic activity can quickly regenerate NAD+ and results in a faster growth phenotype under anaerobic condition. Application of this method led to the identification of a Ter mutant that resulted in fivefold increase in 1-butanol production.

2009) or GOLD (Verdonk et al. 2003), residues that contribute to binding energy increase can be identified for mutagenesis. As an improvement from above method, the Combinatorial Active-site Saturation Test (CAST) systematically explores the contribution of active site residues to the binding of the nonnative substrate through iterative round of saturation mutagenesis (Reetz et al. 2005, 2006; Reetz 2011). In each round, a couple of chosen residues are randomized to form a focused library, which is screened for mutants with desired property.
