Abstract Polyketides from (hydroxy)benzoates are an interesting group of plant polyphenolic compounds, whose biotechnological production is so far underrepresented due to their challenging heterologous biosynthesis. Efficient heterologous production of 2,4,6-tri- and 2,3′,4,6-tetrahydroxybenzophenone, 3,5-dihydroxybiphenyl, and 4-hydroxycoumarin by whole-cell biocatalysis in combination with in situ product extraction with an organic solvent was demonstrated. Production was highly dependent on the used CoA ligase and polyketide synthase type III. Therefore, different combinations of polyketide synthases and benzoate-CoA ligases were evaluated for their biosynthesis performance in the solvent-tolerant Pseudomonas taiwanensis VLB120. A solvent screening yielded 2-undecanone as biocompatible, extraction-efficient solvent with good phase separation. In aqueous-organic two-phase cultivations, this solvent extraction circumvents product instability in the aqueous cultivation medium, and it increases yields by reducing inhibitory effects. Complete de novo synthesis from glucose of all (hydroxy)benzoate-derived polyketides was achieved in two-phase cultivations with metabolically engineered strains. Additionally, mutasynthesis was applied to obtain fluorinated benzophenone derivatives.
