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)
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)
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)
