Exploiting Catabolite Repression and Stringent Response to Control Delay and Multimodality of Bioluminescence Signal by Metal Whole-Cell Biosensors: Interplay between Metal Bioavailability and Nutritional Medium Conditions

Abstract

The time-dependent response of metal-detecting whole-cell luminescent bacterial sensors is impacted by metal speciation/bioavailability in solution. The comprehensive understanding of such connections requires the consideration of the bacterial energy metabolism at stake and the effects of supplied food on cells’ capability to convert bioaccumulated metals into light. Accordingly, we investigated the time response (48 h assay) of PzntA-luxCDABE Escherichia coli Cd biosensors in media differing with respect to sources of amino acids (tryptone or Lysogeny Broth) and carbon (glucose, xylose and mixtures thereof). We show that the resulting coupling between the stringent cell response and glucose/xylose-mediated catabolite repressions lead to well-defined multimodalities and shapes of the bioluminescence signal over time. Based on a recent theory for the time–response of metal-sensing luminescent bacteria, successful theoretical reconstructions of the bioluminescence signals are reported under all Cd concentrations (0–20 nM) and nutritive conditions examined. This analysis leads to the evaluation of time-dependent cell photoactivity and qualitative information on metal speciation/bioavailability in solution. Biosensor performance and the position, shape, number, and magnitude of detected peaks are discussed in relation to the metabolic pathways operative during the successive light emission modes identified here over time. Altogether, the results clarify the contributions of metal/nutrient bio-availabilities and food quality to cell response typology.
