A whole-cell biocatalyst process is an important tool for synthesis of pharmaceutical intermediates and ﬁne chemicals. In this study, a whole cell process using engineered Escherichia coli strain was developed and stepwise optimization was employed for Neu5Ac production. N-acetyl-D-glucosamine 2-epimerase and Neu5Ac aldolase were overexpressed in E. coli individually and the activity ratio was optimized by varying recombinant amounts of cell biomass for syn-thesis of Neu5Ac. Moreover, substrate concentrations and ratio of pyruvate and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (GlcNAc) and detergent concentrations were optimized to increase product synthesis. The resulting process generated 237.4 mM Neu5Ac with a yield of 40.0% mol/mol GlcNAc. Furthermore, transporter pathways involved in Neu5Ac and GlcNAc were engineered and their impact on the Neu5Ac synthesis was evaluated. Using a stepwise optimization, an overall whole-cell biocatalytic process was developed and a maximum titer of 260.0 mM Neu5Ac (80.4 g/L) with a conversion yield of 43.3% from GlcNAc was achieved. The process can be used for industrial large-scale production of Neu5Ac in terms of efﬁciency and economy.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10321/2442||ISSN:||1381-1177|
