  • The maximum theanine production by Camellia sinensis cultured cells was achieved by culturing in the modified MS medium containing 2 mg/l indole-3-butyric acid, 0.1 mg/l kinetin, 0 mM NH4NO3 and 39.6 mM KNO3 with 40 mM ethylamine hydrochloride or 20 mM ethylamine hydrochloride and 10 mM L-glutamic acid. Other primary amines, such as methylamine, n-butylamine, 2-hydroxyethylamine, 2cyanoethylamine, aniline, benzylamine and phenylethylamine, were also biotransformed to N5-alkyl-L-glutamine… CONTINUE READING
