Abstract :

Objective The objective of this study was to investigate the variation of NAD and CoA metabolite pools in Saccharomyces cerevisiae cultivated under various cultivation conditions. This study complements a previous report on glycolytic, pentose phosphate pathway, tricarboxylic acid cycle, amino acids, and deoxy-/nucleoside phosphate pools determined under the same cultivation conditions. Results S. cerevisiae pellets from batch (four carbohydrate sources) and chemostat (carbon-, nitrogen-, phosphate--limited and a range of dilution rates) bioreactor cultivations were extracted and analyzed with two recently established absolute quantitative liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) methods for NAD and CoA metabolites. Both methods apply .sup.13C internal standard dilution strategy for the enhanced analytical accuracy and precision. Individual metabolite pools were relatively constant for the different growth rates within the same mode of cultivation, but large differences were observed among some of the modes, i.e. NAD metabolites were 10 to 100-fold lower in nitrogen limited chemostats compared to the other modes, and phosphate limited chemostats were characterized with much lower CoA metabolite pools. The results complement the previous results and together provide a comprehensive insight into primary metabolite pools variations at a large range in growth and carbon source consumption rates.
