EC Here, a recombinant yeast strain hyper-secreting IFTase from Arthrobacter aurescens was developed by employing the translational fusion partner technique, and the recombinant yeast produced 77.5 g (64.6% yield) of DFA III from 200 g of crude extract of Jerusalem artichoke tuber powder containing 120 g of inulin during direct fermentation. The sugar purity of DFA III was increased up to 95% by additional incubation with Kluyveromyces marxianus. This study is the first report of the secretory production of recombinant IFTase in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and the direct conversion of DFA III from crude extract of Jerusalem artichoke tuber powder by microbial fermentation.
