Expression in Lactococcus lactis of functional genes related to amino acid catabolism and cheese aroma formation is influenced by branched chain amino acids.


Formation of cheese aroma compounds by Lactococcus lactis from amino acid catabolism depends on a complex network of reactions, which involve enzymes such as aminotransferases, dehydrogenases, lyases, and decarboxylases, among others. Based on the ability of some L. lactis strains to grow with low requirements of amino acids, we have studied in L. lactis… (More)
