For development of theanine production from glutamic acid and ethylamine by coupling yeast sugar fermentation as an ATP-regenerating system, several strains were selected from among about 200 methylamine- and/or methanol-assimilating bacteria depending on the theanine-forming activity of their permeated cells. The amount of theanine formed by the cells of the selected strains was much larger than that by the cells of Escherichia coli AD494 (DE3) expressing Pseudomonas taetrolens Y-30 glutamine… CONTINUE READING
