Microbial production of chemicals and materials from renewable sources is becoming increasingly important for sustainable chemical industry. Here, we report construction of a new and efficient platform metabolic pathway for the production of four-carbon (butyrolactam), five-carbon (valerolactam) and six-carbon (caprolactam) lactams. This pathway uses.-amino acids as precursors and comprises two steps. Activation of.-amino acids catalyzed by the Clostridium propionicum beta-alanine CoA transferase (Act) followed by spontaneous cyclization. The pathway operation was validated both in vitro and in vivo. Three metabolically engineered Escherichia coli strains were developed by introducing the newly constructed metabolic pathway followed by systems-level optimization, which resulted in the production of butyrolactam, valerolactam and caprolactam from renewable carbon source. In particular, fed-batch fermentation of the final engineered E. coli strain produced 54.14 g/L of butyrolactam in a glucose minimal medium. These results demonstrate the high efficiency of the novel lactam pathway developed in this study.
