Genetic manipulations including chromosome engineering are essential techniques used to restructure cell metabolism. Lambda/Red (λ/Red)-mediated recombination is the most commonly applied approach for chromosomal modulation in Escherichia coli. However, the efficiency of this method is significantly hampered by the laborious removal of the selectable markers. To overcome the problem, the integration helper plasmid was constructed, pSBC1a-CtR, which contains Red recombinase, Cre recombinase, and exogenous orthogonal aminoacyl-transfer RNA (tRNA) synthetase/tRNA pairs, allows an unnatural amino acid (UAA) to be genetically encoded at the defined site of the antibiotic resistance gene-encoded protein. When UAAs are not in the culture medium, there was no expression in the antibiotic resistance gene-encoded protein. Accordingly, the next procedure of antibiotic gene excising is not needed. To verify this method, poxB gene was knocked out successfully. Furthermore, sequential deletion of three target genes (galR, ptsG, and pgi) was able to generate neurosporene-producing strain marked by high growth rate. Thus, the site-specific incorporation UAA mutagenesis system were used to control and expand the use of conditional selectable marker, and the technique is used to facilitate a rapid continuous genome editing in Escherichia coli.
