The intracellular metabolic fluxes through the central carbon pathways in Bacillus licheniformis in serine alkaline protease (SAP) production were calculated to predict the potential strategies for increasing the performance of the bacilli, by using two optimization approaches, i.e. the theoretical data-based (TDA) and the theoretical data-based capacity (TDC) analyses based on respectively minimum in-vivo SAP accumulation rate and maximum SAP synthesis rate assumptions, at low-, medium, and high-oxygen transfer conditions. At all periods of low-oxygen transfer condition, in lag and early exponential periods of medium-oxygen transfer (MOT) condition, and SAP synthesis period of high-oxygen transfer (HOT) condition, the TDA and TDC analyses revealed that SAP overproduction capacity is almost equal to the observed SAP production due to the regulation effect of the oxygen transfer. In the growth and early SAP synthesis period and in SAP synthesis period at MOT condition the calculated results of the two analyses reveal that SAP synthesis rate of the microorganism can be increased 7.2 and 16.7 folds, respectively; whereas, in the growth and early SAP synthesis period at HOT condition it can be increased 12.6 folds. The diversions in the biochemical reaction network and the influence of the oxygen transfer on the performance of the bacilli were also presented. The results encourage the application of metabolic engineering for lifting the rate limitations and for improving the genetic regulations in order to increase the SAP production.

The effects of oxygen transfer on the production and product distribution in serine alkaline protease (SAP) fermentation by Bacillus licheniformis and oxygen-transfer strategy in relation to the physiology of the bacilli were investigated on a defined medium with citric acid as sole carbon source in 3.5-dm(3) batch bioreactor systems. By forming a 3 x 3 matrix with the parameters air-inlet rates of Q(O)/V-R = 0.2, 0.5, 1.0 vvm, and agitation rates of N = 150, 500, 750 min(-1), the effects of oxygen transfer...

A comprehensive metabolic network that considers 147 reaction fluxes and 105 metabolites is used in a mass-Aux-balance-based stoichiometric model for Bacillus licheniformis for serine alkaline protease (SAP) overproduction. The theoretical capacity analysis leading to optimized SAP overproduction was carried out by using a linear constrained optimization technique for several specific growth rates and the variation of the fluxes were calculated by fixing the sole carbon source citrate's uptake rate at 10 mm...

The effects of the controlled and uncontrolled pH conditions, as well as of the value of initial pH in the range of 7-7.5, on serine alkaline protease (SAP) production by Bacillus licheniformis were investigated on a defined medium with the single carbon source glucose in batch bioreactors. Besides uncontrolled pH operations, growth phase, production phase, and entire process control strategies were also applied. The concentrations of the product (SAP) and by-products, i.e. neutral protease, amylase, amino ...
