Glutamate availability in the argF-argR-proBDelta strain of Corynebacterium glutamicum was increased by addition of glutamate to the cell or inactivation of the phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase activity and simultaneous overexpression of the pyruvate carboxylase activity to assess its effect on Lornithine production. When glutamate was increased in an(More)
With the purpose of generating a microbial strain for l-ornithine production in Corynebacterium glutamicum, genes involved in the central carbon metabolism were inactivated so as to modulate the intracellular level of NADPH, and to evaluate their effects on l-ornithine production in C. glutamicum. Upon inactivation of the 6-phosphoglucoisomerase gene (pgi)(More)
Recently, Corynebacterium glutamicum has been shown to exhibit gluconate bypass activity, with two key enzymes, glucose dehydrogenase (GDH) and gluconate kinase, that provides an alternate route to 6-phosphogluconate formation. In this study, gene disruption analysis was used to examine possible metabolic functions of three proteins encoded by open reading(More)
We recently proposed a metabolic engineering strategy for l-ornithine production based on the hypothesis that an increased intracellular supply of N-acetylglutamate may further enhance l-ornithine production in a well-defined recombinant strain of Corynebacterium glutamicum. In this work, an argJ-deficient arginine auxotrophic mutant of C. glutamicum is(More)
Overexpression of the NCgl0462 open reading frame, encoding a class II aminotransferase, was studied in conjunction with other enzymes in L-ornithine biosynthesis in an L-ornithine-producing strain. Expression of the wild-type NCgl0462 open reading frame, which displayed aminotransferase activity, was amplified by placing it under the control of the(More)
