Phomopsis sp. XP-8 is an endophytic fungus that has the ability to produce pinoresinol diglucoside (PDG) in vitro and thus has potential application for the biosynthesis of PDG independent of plants. When cultivated in mung bean medium, PDG production was significantly improved and pinoresinol monoglucoside (PMG) and pinoresinol (Pin) were also found in the culture medium. In this experiment, starch, protein, and polysaccharides were isolated from mung beans and separately used as the sole substrate in order to explore the mechanism of fermentation and identify the major substrates that attributed to the biotransformation of PDG, PMG, and Pin. The production of PDG, PMG, and Pin was monitored using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and confirmed using HPLC-MS. Activities of related enzymes, including phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL), trans-cinnamate 4-hydroxylase (C4H), and 4-coumarate-CoA ligase (4CL) were analyzed and tracked during the cultivation. The reaction system contained the compounds isolated from mung bean in the designed amount. Accumulation of phenylalanine, cinnamic acid, p-coumaric acid, PDG, PMG, and Pin and the activities of PAL, C4H, and 4CL were measured during the bioconversion. PMG was found only when mung bean polysaccharide was analyzed, while production of PDG and Pin were found when both polysaccharide and starch were analyzed. After examining the monosaccharide composition of the mung bean polysaccharide and the effect of the different monosaccharides had on the production of PMG, PDG, and Pin, galactose in mung bean polysaccharide proved to be the major factor that stimulates the production of PMG.

Phomopsis sp. XP-8 (an endophytic fungus) was previously found to produce pinoresinol diglucoside (PDG), a major antihypertensive compound of Tu-Chung (the bark of Eucommia ulmoides Oliv.), which is widely used in Chinese traditional medicines. In the present study, two bioconversion systems were developed for the production of PDG in Tris-HCl buffer containing glucose and Phomopsis sp. XP-8 cells (both resting and freeze-dried). When other factors remained unchanged, the bioconversion time, glucose concentration, cell ages, cell dosage, pH, temperature, and stirring speed influenced PDG production in a similar and decreasing manner after an initial increase with increasing levels for each factor. Considering the simultaneous change of various factors, the optimal conditions for PDG production were established as 70 g/l cells (8-day-old), 14 g/l glucose, 28°C, pH 7.5, and 180 rpm for systems employing resting cells, and 3.87 g/l cells, 14.67 g/l glucose, 28°C, pH 7.5, and 180 rpm for systems employing freeze-dried cells. The systems employing freeze-dried cells showed lower peak PDG production (110.28 μg/l), but at a much shorter time (12.65 h) compared with resting cells (23.62 mg/l, 91.5 h). The specific PDG production levels were 1.92 and 24 μg per gram cells per gram glucose for freeze-dried cells and resting cells, respectively. Both systems indicated a new and potentially efficient way to produce PDG independent of microbial cell growth.

Phomopsis sp. XP-8 is an endophytic fungus with the ability to produce pinoresinol diglucoside (PDG) in vitro and thus has potential application in biosynthesis of PDG independent of plants. In order to enhance the production of PDG, 18 different natural materials were tested in solid-state cultivation of Phomopsis sp. XP-8.

Most of the tested natural materials promoted the production of PDG. A supplement derived from mung beans produced the highest PDG yield and better fungal growth than the other materials. Also, pinoresinol monoglucoside, pinoresinol and other substrates (phenylalanine, p-coumaric acid, cinnamic acid, caffeic acid, and ferulic acid) were obtained after fermentation on mung beans. Furthermore, PDG production was much higher when mung beans were incorporated into solid state agar versus a liquid medium. The highest pinoresinol diglucoside production (72.1 mg kg(-1) in fresh culture) was obtained in 9 days using a solid state culture of Phomopsis sp. XP-8 on a mung bean grain medium containing 100 g kg(-1) glucose. Mung bean water-soluble polysaccharide was identified as a major promoter of PDG production by Phomopsis sp. XP-8.

Mung bean, especially its water-soluble polysaccharide fraction, was an efficient natural material to promote PDG production by Phomopsis sp. XP-8. © 2015 Society of Chemical Industry.
