Lactobacillus plantarum, commonly isolated from plant material, is widely used to produce various types of fermented foods. However, nutrient-limiting conditions are often encountered during industrial applications. The present study aimed to investigate the response of L. plantarum P-8 to glucose-limited conditions in a long-term experiment. Genotypic and proteomic changes in L. plantarum P-8 were monitored over 3 years in glucose-limited and glucose-normal media using whole-genome resequencing and tandem mass tag-based quantitative proteomic analysis. Results showed that L. plantarum employed numerous survival mechanisms, including alteration of the cell envelope, activation of the PTS system, accumulation and consumption of amino acids, increase in the metabolism of carbohydrates (via glycolysis, citric acid cycle, and pyruvate metabolism), and increase in the production of ATP in response to glucose starvation. This study demonstrates the feasibility of experimental evolution of L. plantarum P-8, while whole-genome resequencing of adapted isolates provided clues toward bacterial functions involved and a deeper mechanistic understanding of the adaptive response of L. plantarum to glucose-limited conditions.
