Development of efficient enzymatic production of theanine by γ-glutamyltranspeptidase from a newly isolated strain of Bacillus subtilis, SK11.004.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Theanine, a unique amino acid found almost exclusively in tea plants, has various favourable physiological and pharmacological functions in humans. Gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase (GGT, EC 2.3.2.2) is considered to be the most effective enzyme for the production of theanine. In fact, GGT can catalyse the transfer of γ-glutamyl moieties from… (More)
