Cover for Inter-organ fluxes of amino acids.

Plasma amino acid pools are regulated by production and disposal. Whereas essential amino acids are dependent on protein breakdown for their plasma flux, non-essential amino acids are produced de novo within the body. In many instances these production processes are encased in metabolic cycles,...

Cover for Pathways of utilization of D-amino acids in higher organisms.

Although an integral part of the peptidoglycan structure of bacteria, D-amino acids are ubiquitous in higher organisms by virtue of endogenous synthesis and symbiotic microbial activity. The occurrence of D-alanine, D-aspartate and D-glutamate in higher organisms is now well documented. Distinct...

Cover for Cellular responses to serine in yeast.

The serine-glycine interconversion has been the subject of considerable research over several decades and it involves series of reactions of relevance to bacteria and fungi as well as higher organisms. Much has been published on the role of cofactors and one-carbon units in this reversible...

Cover for Regulation of sulfur amino acid metabolism in fungi.

The fungal biosynthesis of cysteine and methionine requires the ability to accumulate sulfur atoms from the environment and to convert the sulfur into a usable form (e.g. sulfide). In particular, the processes involved in sulfur amino acid biosynthesis, including sulfur acquisition, the generation...

Cover for Metabolic engineering of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Corynebacterium glutamicum</i> for L-valine production.

L-Valine is one of the three branched-chain amino acids that is essential for animal health and important in metabolism, so it is widely added to food, medicine and feed products. It is predominantly produced through microbial fermentation, and the production efficiency largely depends on the...

Cover for The kynurenine pathway of tryptophan metabolism in microorganisms.

In this chapter, the kynurenine pathway in bacteria, archaea, unicellular fungi and protists is reviewed. The kynurenine pathway is the major catabolic pathway for L-tryptophan metabolism in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. There are two different kynurenine pathways, sometimes called 'inducible' and...

Cover for Functions and metabolism of D-amino acids in microorganisms.

All naturally occurring amino acids, except glycine, have two chiral forms, L (laevorotatory) and D (dextrorotatory). L-Amino acids occur predominantly in nature, but certain D-amino acids have also been found in various organisms. Microorganisms are a major source of D-amino acids in nature, and...
