Link between primary and secondary metabolism in the biotransformation of trimethylammonium compounds by escherichia coli.

Abstract

The aim of this work was to understand the steps controlling the process of biotransformation of trimethylamonium compounds into L(-)-carnitine by Escherichia coli and the link between the central carbon or primary and the secondary metabolism expressed. Thus, the enzyme activities involved in the biotransformation process of crotonobetaine into L… (More)
