The Gram-positive Corynebacterium glutamicum is widely used for fermentative production of amino acids. The world production of l-lysine has surpassed 2 million tons per year. Glucose uptake and phosphorylation by C. glutamicum mainly occur by the phosphotransferase system (PTS) and to lesser extent by inositol permeases and glucokinases. Heterologous(More)
l-arginine is a semi-essential amino acid with application in cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and food industries. Metabolic engineering strategies have been applied for overproduction of l-arginine by Corynebacterium glutamicum. LysE was the only known l-arginine exporter of this bacterium. However, an l-arginine-producing strain carrying a deletion of lysE(More)
Influenza virus infection remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality during winter seasons. Bacterial and virus co-infection is a commonly described situation in these patients. However, data on co-infection by influenza A and B viruses are lacking. In this study, we present the cases of co-infection by influenza A and B viruses during the winter(More)
