Corynebacterium Glutamicum

Corynebacterium glutamicum is an industrial microbe traditionally used for the production of amino acids. It proved its potential, however, for the fermentative production of diverse products through genetic–metabolic engineering. It was first discovered as a producer of glutamate. Now it is used to make amino acids, such as lysine, threonine, and isoleucine, as well as vitamins like pantothenate. Through genetic alterations, this microbe showed its efficacy for the simultaneous utilization of hexose and pentose sugars of biomass hydrolysate for making value-added products, such as amino acids and polyamines, and thus making it a strain of choice to work in a biorefinery concept.
