Adaptable exploitation of the catalytic potential of membrane-bound d-sorbitol dehydrogenase (mSLDH) from Gluconobacter oxydans is desperately needed in the industrial-scale production of miglitol. In the present study, a carbonyl group-dependent colorimetric quantification method was developed for the assay of miglitol key intermediate 6-(N-hydroxyethyl)-amino-6-deoxy-α-l-sorbofuranose (6NSL), and a high-throughput screening process of positive mutants was processed. Combined with several rounds of ultraviolet irradiation mutagenesis and screening procedure, a positive mutant strain G. oxydans ZJB16009 was obtained with significant increase in mSLDH catalytic activity by 1.5-fold, which exhibited an extremely accelerated uptake rate of d-sorbitol, and the fermentation time was significantly shortened from 22 to 11 h. In a 5-L biotransformation system, 60 g/L substrate N-2-hydroxyethyl glucamine (NHEG) was catalyzed by the resting cells of the mutant strain within 36 h and accumulated 53.6 g/L 6NSL, showing a 33.6% increase in the product yield. Therefore, it was indicated that the established high-throughput screening method could provide a highly efficient platform for the breading of G. oxydans strain for the industrial biosynthesis of miglitol intermediate 6NSL.
