3-Hydroxypropionic acid (3-HP) is a commercially important platform chemical from which a panel of chemicals can be generated. Klebsiella pneumoniae has been regarded as a promising host strain in glycerol-based 3-HP production for its exceptional ability to metabolize glycerol. Since the glycerol dissimilation mechanism governs the carbon flux distribution from glycerol, inducible strong promoters were usually employed to enhance the glycerol consumption and 3-HP production. Here, we report an alternative strategy that the native promoter of dhaB gene was applied to enhance 3-HP production in K. pneumoniae. The key enzyme genes (ald4 and dhaB) for 3-HP biosynthesis were co-expressed under this promoter. Metabolic analysis revealed that the 3-HP formation was partially coupled with cell metabolism. To optimize the production of 3-HP, the effects of glucose as energy source assistant were investigated based on the analysis of fermentation process kinetics. The highest 3-HP yield (3.77 g/L in flask) was observed upon optimized conditions. Since there were no additional inducers needed, the strategy of employing native promoter seems more feasible to industrial application. More importantly, the employment of constitutive promoter demonstrated an effective approach for decoupling the natural correlation between respiratory metabolism and glycerol dissimilation in K. pneumoniae.
