Engineering the stambomycin modular polyketide synthase yields 37-membered mini-stambomycins

Abstract

Abstract The modular organization of the type I polyketide synthases (PKSs) would seem propitious for rational engineering of desirable analogous. However, despite decades of efforts, such experiments remain largely inefficient. Here, we combine multiple, state-of-the-art approaches to reprogram the stambomycin PKS by deleting seven internal modules. One system produces the target 37-membered mini-stambomycin metabolites − a reduction in chain length of 14 carbons relative to the 51-membered parental compounds − but also substantial quantities of shunt metabolites. Our data also support an unprecedented off-loading mechanism of such stalled intermediates involving the C-terminal thioesterase domain of the PKS. The mini-stambomycin yields are reduced relative to wild type, likely reflecting the poor tolerance of the modules downstream of the modified interfaces to the non-native substrates. Overall, we identify factors contributing to the productivity of engineered whole assembly lines, but our findings also highlight the need for further research to increase production titers.
