In the current study, the small RNA ryhB, which regulates the metabolism of iron in Escherichia coli, was constitutively expressed in engineered Escherichia coli DALA. The resulting strain Escherichia coli DALRA produced 16% more 5-aminolevulinic acid than the parent strain Escherichia coli DALA in batch fermentation. Meanwhile, we found that addition of iron in the medium increased heme formation and reduced 5-aminolevulinic acid yield, whereas the presence of iron chelator in the medium decreased heme concentration and increased the 5-aminolevulinic acid production efficiency (5-aminolevulinic acid yield /OD600 ). The qRT-PCR analysis showed that the mRNA levels of hemB and hemH were also decreased besides the known RyhB target genes of acnAB, sdhAB, fumA, and cydAB in Escherichia coli DALRA. These results indicated that small RNA can be used as a tool for regulating 5-aminolevulinic acid accumulation in Escherichia coli. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
