Metabolomics analysis is extremely essential to explore the metabolism characteristics of Saccharopolyspora erythraea. The lack of suitable methods for the determination of intracellular metabolites, however, hinders the application of metabolomics analysis for S. erythraea. Acyl-CoAs are important precursors of erythromycin; phosphorylated sugars are intermediate metabolites in EMP pathway or PPP pathway; organic acids are intermediate metabolites in TCA cycle. Reliable determination methods for intracellular acyl-CoAs, phosphorylated sugars, and organic acids of S. erythraea were designed and validated in this study. Using the optimized determination methods, the pool sizes of intracellular metabolites during an erythromycin fermentation process were precisely quantified by isotope dilution mass spectroscopy method. The quantification results showed that the specific erythromycin production rate was positively correlated with the pool sizes of propionyl-CoA as well as many other intracellular metabolites. The experiment under the condition without propanol, which is a precursor of propionyl-CoA and an important substrate in industrial erythromycin production process, also corroborated the correlation between specific erythromycin production rate and intracellular propionyl-CoA pool size. As far as we know, this is the first paper to conduct the metabolomics analysis of S. erythraea, which makes the metabolomics analysis of S. erythraea in the industrial erythromycin production process possible.
