Saccharomyces cerevisiae is the dominant fermentative producer of ethanol in industry and a preferred host for production of other biofuels. That said, rewiring the metabolism of S. cerevisiae to produce other fermentation products, such as isobutanol, remains an academic challenge. Many studies report aerobic production of isobutanol, but ethanol remains a substantial by-product under these conditions due to the Crabtree effect. These studies indicate that the native isobutanol pathway is incapable of carrying sufficient flux to displace ethanol. In this report, we screened a combinatorial library of pathway enzymes to identify an isobutanol pathway cassette capable of supporting the growth of a non-ethanol producing S. cerevisiae. We began by identifying a diverse set of isobutanol pathway enzyme homologs and combined each open reading frame with varied-strength promoters in a combinatorial, pooled fashion. We applied a growth-coupled screen where a functional isobutanol pathway restored NAD+ regeneration during glucose catabolism that is otherwise repressed via the Crabtree effect. Using this screen, we isolated a cassette consisting of a mosaic of bacterial and cytosol-localized fungal enzymes that conferred under aerobic conditions the ability to produce 364 mg/L isobutanol (8.8% of the theoretical maximum yield). We next shifted the cofactor usage of the isolated ketol-acid reductoisomerase enzyme in the cassette from NADPH to NADH-preferring to improve redox balance. The approach used herein isolated isobutanol producing strains that approach the best in the literature without producing substantial ethanol titers. Still, the best isolated cassette was insufficient to support anaerobic growth in the absence of ethanol fermentation – indicating the presence of further fundamental gaps in our understanding of yeast fermentation.
