Title
Strain selection and scale-up fermentation for FR901379 acylase production by Streptomyces sp. no. 6907
Abstract

Micafungin (FK463) is a widely used treatment for life-threatening, deep-seated fungal infections. It is an echinocandin-like lipopeptide derived from the chemical modification of deacylated FR901379, a type of lipopeptide antibiotic produced by Coleophoma empetri F-11899. The palmitoyl moiety of FR901379 is deacylated by FR901379 acylase produced by Streptomyces sp. no. 6907. In this study, our goal was to generate an improved strain of Streptomyces sp. no. 6907 capable of hyperproducing the FR901379-acylase enzyme. To accomplish this goal, modified strains of Streptomyces sp. no. 6907 were generated using UV-irradiation mutagenesis, and strain selection was performed using an agar-plate screening method to efficiently select an acylase-hyperproducing strain. Three marker indices were shown to correlate with elevated acylase production: decreased candidacidal activity of FR901379, decreased proteolytic activity on skim milk, and phenotypic characteristics. Cloning and subsequent sequencing of the acylase gene from the hyperproducing mutant revealed no mutations in either the acylase structural gene or the 5′-flanking region required for gene expression. The growth medium was also modified to maximize acylase production. We successfully increased acylase activity approximately 65-fold, compared with the original growth conditions (wild strain cultured in the original unmodified medium). To minimize formation of excess foam during the fermentation process, we optimized the parameters of agitation speed, as calculated from the discharge flow rate. Using our improved strain and the optimized medium and growth conditions, we have developed an improved and highly reproducible method for stable large-scale production of FR901379-acylase.
