Volume 61, Issue 5
A major challenge for further promotion of lipase productivity in Penicillium expansum is to find a suitable promoter for this industrial strain. This work characterized the 5' flanking region of P. expansum lipase (Ppel) containing a putative novel promoter sequence by fusing to β-glucuronidase (GUS), which was subsequently introduced into P. expansum. The transformants, which showed blue color quickly after incubation in GUS detection buffer, implied a strong promoter activity of this fragment. Facilitated by this novel promoter, P. expansum PE-12 was genetically modified, and the highest lipase yield reached 2,100 U/mL, which is over twofold that of a previous industrial strain. The engineered strain showed great potential in lipase industry.
