High level extracellular production of a truncated alkaline β-mannanase from alkaliphilic Bacillus sp. N16-5 in Escherichia coli by the optimization of induction condition and fed-batch fermentation

Abstract

To improve the extracellular production of alkaline β-mannanase from alkaliphilic Bacillus sp. N16-5 in Escherichia coli, two truncated recombinant mannanases (32a-ManAR2 and 22b-ManAR2) were obtained. Compared with the full-length mannanases (32a-ManAR1 and 22b-ManAR1), the truncated mannanases not only showed higher secretion rate, but also exhibited higher thermostability and alkalistability. The K m value (11 mg/mL) of 32a-ManAR2 was higher than that (1.46 mg/mL) of 32a-ManAR1. The specific activity of 22b-ManAR2 was 2.7 times higher than that of 22b-ManAR1. 22b-ManAR2 showed the highest k cat/K m value of 602.7 ml/mg s. The parameters of induction for recombinant mannanase production of E. coli BL21 (pET32a-manAR2) and E. coli BL21 (pET22b-manAR2) were subsequently optimized. The yield of soluble mannanase was found to be enhanced with lower induction temperature (25 °C), lower IPTG concentration (0.01–0.05 mM), and Triton X-100 supplement (0.1 %) in a shake flask. Moreover, a one-time feeding strategy and Triton X-100 supplement were applied in production of 22b-ManAR2 in a 10 L fermentor. The productivity of the total soluble mannanase reached 9284.64 U/mL with the extracellular rate of 74 % at 46 h of fermentation, which was the highest productive level of alkaline β-mannanase in recombinant E. coli to date.
