Two different approaches to activate the glyoxylate bypass in model Escherichia coli K-12 strains for succinate biosynthesis during dual-phase fermentation in minimal glucose media were examined. Inactivation of IclR and FadR, the transcriptional regulators of the aceBAK operon, were insufficient for the involvement of the glyoxylate bypass in anaerobic(More)
Efficient succinate production in Escherichia coli is attained during anaerobic glucose fermentation in biosynthetic processes combining the reductive branch of the TCA cycle and the glyoxylate bypass. Pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) or pyruvate formate lyase (PFL) serves in E. coli as a source of acetyl-CoA, a substrate for the glyoxylate bypass. Depending on(More)
In this study, we constructed and characterized Escherichia coli strains deficient in mixed acid fermentation pathways, which are capable of rapid aerobic growth on glucose without pronounced bacterial Crabtree effect. The main pathways of production of acetic and lactic acids and ethanol in these strains were inactivated by a deletion of the ackA, pta,(More)
Effect of constitutive expression of the aceEF-lpdA operon genes coding for the enzymes of NAD+-reducing pyruvate dehydrogenase complex on the anaerobic production of succinic acid from glucose by recombinant Escherichia coli strains was studied. Basic producer strains were obtained by inactivation of the main pathways for synthesis of acetic and lactic(More)
Bio-based succinate production from renewable resources has prospective economic and environmental benefits that caused heightened interest towards the study of succinate-producing microorganisms. The pathways of succinate formation have been well studied, and microorganisms that are capable of biomass convertion into the target substance (bacteria of the(More)
Anaerobic biosynthesis of 1-butanol from glucose is investigated in recombinant Escherichia coli strains which form butyryl-CoA using the heterologous enzyme complex of clostridia or as a result of a reversal in the action of native enzymes of the fatty acid β-oxidation pathway. It was revealed that when the basic pathways of acetic and lactic acid(More)
Effect of constitutive expression of the aceEF-lpdA operon genes coding for the enzymes of NAD+ reducing pyruvate dehydrogenase complex on the anaerobic production of succinic acids from glucose by recombinant Escherichia coli strains was studied. Basic producer strains were obtained by inactivation of the main pathways for synthesis of acetic and lactic(More)
