- Kaempferol 3-O-galactoside (Trifolin), a member of the flavonol group, has been reported to have anticancer effects against promyelocytic leukemia, histocytic lymphoma, skin melanoma and lung cancer. Trifolin has been extracted and used from several plants, but the extraction process is complicated and the final yield is low. Biotransformation is an alternative tool to produce high value-added chemicals from inexpensive compounds. To synthesis trifolin from naringenin, three genes (PeFLS and OsUGE-PhUGT) were introduced into Escherichia coli, respectively. In order to synthesis trifolin from naringenin, a co-culture fermentation system was established by optimizing the cell concentration, biotransformation temperature and medium, isopropyl-β-D-thiogalactoside (IPTG) concentration, substrate supply concentration, and recombinant protein induction time. The established optimal conditions for trifolin production were a 3:1 ratio of BL-UGTE to BL-FLS, induction of recombinant protein at 25oC for 4 h after addition of 2.0 mM IPTG, biotransformation at 30oC, and supply of 300 μM naringenin. Through the optimized co-culture fermentation system, trifolin was biosynthesized up to 67.3 mg/L. ? The Korean Society for Applied Biological Chemistry 2021.
