Enhancing industrial succinate production in Corynebacterium glutamicum

Project: Research

Description

This project originates from our recent discovery of a new class of succinate transporters in Escherichia coli. It aims to elucidate the roles of these transporters in Corynebacterium glutamicum physiology to enhance succinate metabolism and increase production of industrially-useful metabolites, such as the C1-4 dicarboxylic acids. The specific aims are:
- To use molecular genetic methods to produce the various C. glutamicum strains necessary for this study.
- To analyse the phenotypes of the strains by phenotypic microarrays.
