We explored simple and cost effective method to obtain recombinant PAL of Rhodosporidium toruloides using E. coli expression system. E. coli strain BL21 (DE3) was transformed by pET28 plasmid containing L-phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL) gene from Rhodosporidium toruloides and cultured in different conditions. To assess the physiological activity of microbial cells, we studied the growth kinetics in a series of batch fermentation and changes in its activity after the induction. The kinetics of the process of cultivation of recombinant E. coli strain was studied by the Ludeking-Paire model. A growth and induction regimen was established for use in bioreactor which results in the accumulation of 1,9 g l-1 of recombinant PAL. The point of maximum activity of the PAL produced was determined at 38.0-38.5 h after induction. The optimum concentration of inducer (IPTG) was 2 mM, we recommend to add the inducer at OD540=1.3. This simple and cost effective production process could be recruited for large scale production of PAL.
