Application of a double-reporter-guided mutant selection method to improve clavulanic acid production in Streptomyces clavuligerus



Application of a double-reporter-guided mutant selection method to improve clavulanic acid production in Streptomyces clavuligerus



Metabolic Engineering 11(4-5): 310-318



A reporter-guided mutant selection (RGMS) method has been developed wherein reporters are used to facilitate selection of target over-expressing mutants. It was applied to improve clavulanic acid (CA) production in Streptomyces clavuligerus. In a single-reporter design, the transcriptional activator ccaR of CA biosynthesis was chosen as the over-expressing target, and neo (resistance to kanamycin) as the reporter; 51% of the selected mutants produced higher CA titer than the starting strain. To reduce the high false positive rate of single-reporter method, a double-reporter RGMS vector was configured, in which an xylE-neo double-reporter cassette was used to monitor ccaR expression; 90% of mutants selected by the modified method showed improvement in CA titer. Double-reporter RGMS is the most efficient tool for mutant selection reported to date and is also an alternative method for target over-expression. The mutants obtained by RGMS showed great genetic diversity that could be further exploited in inverse metabolic engineering.
