When Lactococcus lactis was grown in various complex or synthetic media, the fermentation of glucose remained homolactic whatever the medium used, with a global carbon balance of about 87%. Moreover, the nitrogen balance was not equilibrated, indicating that some amino acids led to the production of unknown nitrogen-containing carbon compounds while part of the glucose might contribute to anabolic pathways. In minimal medium containing six amino acids, a high concentration of serine was… CONTINUE READING
