Metabolic engineering of Acremonium chrysogenum for improving cephalosporin C production independent of methionine stimulation.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND:Cephalosporin C (CPC) produced by Acremonium chrysogenum is one of the most important drugs for treatment of bacterial infectious diseases. As the major stimulant, methionine is widely used in the industrial production of CPC. In this study, we found methionine stimulated CPC production through enhancing the accumulation of endogenous S-adenosylmethionine (SAM). To overcome the methionine dependent stimulation of CPC production, the methionine cycle of A. chrysogenum was reconstructed by metabolic engineering. RESULTS:Three engineered strains were obtained by overexpressing the SAM synthetase gene AcsamS and the cystathionine-?-lyase gene mecB, and disrupting a SAM dependent methyltransferase gene Acppm1, respectively. Overexpression of AcsamS resulted in fourfold increase of CPC production which reached to 129.7 µg/mL. Disruption of Acppm1 also increased CPC production (up to 135.5 µg/mL) through enhancing the accumulation of intracellular SAM. Finally, an optimum recombinant strain (Acppm1DM-mecBOE) was constructed through overexpressing mecB in the Acppm1 disruption mutant. In this strain, CPC production reached to the maximum value (142.7 µg/mL) which was 5.5-fold of the wild-type level and its improvement was totally independent of methionine stimulation. CONCLUSIONS:In this study, we constructed a recombinant strain in which the improvement of CPC production was totally independent of methionine stimulation. This work provides an economic route for improving CPC production in A. chrysogenum through metabolic engineering.
