Comparison of benzaldehyde lyase production capacity in recombinant Escherichia coli and recombinant Bacillus species

Kaya, Hande
In this study, the benzaldehyde lyase (BAL, EC production in E. coli BL21 (DE3) pLySs as intracellular and in Bacillus species as extracellular were investigated, and comparison of the production capacity of the enzyme in the developed recombinant microorganisms were compared. For this purpose, firstly, PCR amplified bal gene was cloned into pRSETA vector which is under the control of strong T7 promoter and expressed in E. coli BL21 (DE3) pLysS strain. With developed recombinant E. coli BL21 (DE3) pLySs cells, the effect of bioprocess parameters was systematically investigated. Among the investigated media, the highest cell concentration and benzaldehyde lyase activity were obtained as 2.0 kg m-3 and 1060 U cm-3, respectively, in the medium containing 20.0 kg m-3 glucose, 11.8 kg m-3 (NH4)2HPO4 and the salt solution. Thereafter, oxygen transfer effects on benzaldehyde lyase production were investigated at air inlet v rate of QO/VR = 0.5 vvm, and agitation rates of N=500 and 750 min-1 and at QO/VR = 0.7 vvm, N=750 min-1 in pilot scale bioreactor and the highest cell concentration and volumetric BAL activity were found as 1.7 kg m-3 and 990 U cm-3, respectively, at 0.5 vvm, 750 min-1 condition. Next, the signal DNA sequence of serine alkaline protease (SAP) from B. licheniformis DSM 1969 chromosomal DNA (pre-subC) was fused in front of the bal by using PCR-based gene splicing by overlap extension (SOE) method. The fusion product of hybrid gene first cloned into pUC19 plasmid, thereafter sub-cloned into pBR374 shuttle vector and recombinant plasmid was transferred into various Bacillus species. However, no extracellular production of benzaldehyde lyase was observed in none of the developed recombinant Bacillus species, probably because of ineffective secretion system, inefficient folding of heterologous protein, degradation of enzyme due to proteolytic activity or high inactivation rate of the enzyme.


Recombinant therapeutic protease production by Bacillus sp.
Korkmaz, Nuriye; Çalık, Pınar; Department of Chemical Engineering (2007)
The first aim of this study is the development of extracellular recombinant therapeutic protease streptokinase producing Bacillus sp., and the second aim is to determine fermentation characteristics for streptokinase production. In this context, the signal (pre-) DNA sequence of B.licheniformis (DSM1969) extracellular serine alkaline protease enzyme gene (subC: Acc. No. X03341) was ligated to 5’ end of the streptokinase gene (skc: Acc. No. S46536) by SOE (Gene Splicing by Overlap Extension) method through P...
Molecular cloning and co-expression of Thermoplasma volcanium proteasome subunit genes
Kocabıyık, Semra; Zwickl, Peter; Ozdogan, Seda (Elsevier BV, 2010-10-01)
In this study we describe, the construction of a co-expression vector allowing simultaneous production of Thermoplasma volcanium 20S proteasome alpha- and beta-subunits in Escherichia coli. This heterologous expression system provided high level production of fully active 205 proteasome that can be purified easily by using a conventional two-step chromatographic technique. The recombinant proteasome was purified to homogeneity 12-fold with a specific activity of 26.5 U/mg. Sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylam...

Telli, İlkin Ece; Çalık, Pınar; Department of Chemical Engineering (2004)
In this study, firstly, bioprocess characteristics for Serine Alkaline Protease (SAP) production, using recombinant Bacillus subtilis carrying pHV1431::subC, were examined. The cell concentration, substrate concentration, SAP activity and SAP synthesis rate profiles demonstrated that the system reaches to a steady state in terms of cell growth and SAP synthesis between t=15-25 h, therefore, this time interval is appropriate to employ both metabolic flux analysis and metabolic control analysis, which apply s...
Influence of oxygen transfer on benzaldehyde lyase production by recombinant Escherichia coli BL21(DE3) pLySs
Angardi, Vahideh; Çalık, Pınar; Department of Chemical Engineering (2007)
In this study, the effects of oxygen transfer conditions on the synthesis of the enzyme benzaldehyde lyase as intracellular in recombinant E. coli BL21 (DE3) pLysS was investigated sistematically and a comprehensive model was developed to determine benzaldehyde lyase activity. For this purpose, the research program was carried out in mainly two parts. In the first part of study, the effects of oxygen transfer together with the mass transfer coefficient (KLa), enhancement factor E (=KLa/KLao), volumetric oxy...
Exponential feeding strategy development for benzaldehyde lyase production by recombinant "Escherichia coli"
Taşpınar, Hatice; Çalık, Pınar; Özdamar, Tunçer H.; Department of Biotechnology (2010)
In this study, the aim was to investigate the effects of exponential feeding strategy on benzaldehyde lyase (BAL) production by recombinant Escherichia coli BL21. For this purpose, the effects of medium components were investigated to optimize the initial medium composition of the fed-batch fermentations. For the batch bioreactor operations, the highest cell concentration and BAL activity were achieved in a media containing 30 g L-1 pretreated molasses, and 5 g L-1 (NH4)2HPO4 as 5.07 g L-1, and 1611 U ml-1 ...
