Biotransformation of 1,3-propanediol cyclic sulfate and its derivatives to diols by toluene-permeabilized cells of Bacillus sp. CCZU11-1.


PMID 25547816

Abstract

In this study, it was the first report that Bacillus sp. CCZU11-1 was used for the biotransformation of 1,3-propanediol cyclic sulfate (1,3-PDS) and its derivatives. The catalytic performance of Bacillus sp. sulfatase in the biotransformation of 1,3-PDS was significantly improved by biocatalyst permeabilization and immobilization. Using cell permeabilization, the hydrolytic activity of the whole-cell biocatalyst was increased by 3.5-fold after 1.5 h of pretreatment with 10 % (v/v) toluene at 30 °C and pH 7.0. Biotransformation of 20 mM 1,3-PDS for 24 h, 1,3-propanediol (1,3-PD) could be obtained in the yield of 97.4 % under the optimized reaction condition. Additionally, the immobilized biocatalysts, permeabilized cells entrapped in calcium alginate, and cross-linked enzyme aggregates were further employed to biotansform 1,3-PDS. Moreover, the total operational time of the immobilized biocatalysts could reach above 240 h with high conversion rate (>90 %).
