Corynebacterium glutamicum was chanced on in Japan in 1956 as a ordinary glutamate manufacturer. Its “microbial manufacturing unit” characteristics, akin to its physiological plasticity and strong catalytic functionalities, have for the reason that facilitated the advance of effective creation techniques for amino acids, nucleotides and supplementations.

This monograph illustrates how the data gleaned from entire genome sequencing permits the rational engineering of the whole mobile metabolism and the way platforms biology allows the additional optimization of C. glutamicum as a biocatalyst. facets of gene legislation, metabolic pathways, sugar uptake, protein secretion, phone department and biorefinery purposes spotlight the large biotechnological and biorefinery power.

Glutamicum at productivities that are sufficiently high to enable the deployment of these bioconversions at the industrial scale. This is an important step forward as it paves the way to the development of a The Biotechnological Potential of Corynebacterium glutamicum 23 corynebacterial biorefinery to produce a range of industrial chemicals, in addition to amino acids. What is more, trends of increasing pricing have been observed for several polymers including PET, polypropylene, and polystyrene (Bohlmann 2007).
