Arginine catabolism in wine lactic acid bacteria: is it via the arginine deiminase pathway or the arginase-urease pathway?
The wine lactic acid bacteria Leuconostoc oenos OENO and Lactobacillus buchneri CUC-3 catabolize L-arginine to ornithine and ammonia as major end-products, with 1 mole of arginine converted into 2Expand
