Zhou, H, Liao, X, Wang, T, Du, G and Chen, J (2010) Enhanced l-phenylalanine biosynthesis by co-expression of pheA(fbr) and aroF(wt). Bioresour. Technol. 101:4151-6
A beta-2-thienylalanine-resistant E. coli K12 mutant carrying a Thr326Pro mutation in the regulation (R) domain of pheA (pheA(fbr)) was obtained by N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine (NTG) mutagenesis. In the presence of 200mM l-phenylalanine (l-Phe), a recombinant E. coli WSH-Z06 (pAP-B03) carrying pheA(fbr) as well as wild-type aroF (aroF(wt)) exhibited more than 70% of the chorismate mutase-prephenate dehydratase (CM-PDT) activity as observed in the absence of this amino acid. The l-Phe titer of WSH-Z06 (pAP-B03) reached 35.38g/L in a 3-L fermentor, which was 2.81-fold higher than that of the original strain E. coli WSH-Z06. Furthermore, the l-Phe yield on glucose of WSH-Z06 (pAP-B03) (0.26mol/mol) was twice that of E. coli WSH-Z06. This recombinant E. coli WSH-Z06 (pAP-B03) is a potential strain for over-production of l-Phe.
