A number of d-amino acids occur in nature, and there is growing interest in their function and metabolism, as well as in their production and use. Here we use the well-established l-amino-acid-producing bacterium Corynebacterium glutamicum to study whether d-amino acid synthesis is possible and whether mechanisms for the export of these amino acids exist. In contrast to Escherichia coli, C. glutamicum tolerates d-amino acids added extracellularly. Expression of argR (encoding the broad… CONTINUE READING
