l-Arginine is produced by bacterial fermentation and is consumed in food flavoring and pharmaceutical industries. A better understanding of arginine metabolism in bacteria could be beneficial for a rational design of recombinant l-arginine producers by genetic engineering. This mini-review illustrated the current status of genes and enzymes for arginine metabolism, including biosynthetic pathways, catabolic pathways, uptake and excretion systems, and regulation. The linkage of polyamine and… CONTINUE READING
