Summary of "Expanding lysine industry: industrial biomanufacturing of lysine and its derivatives."

L-Lysine is widely used as a nutrition supplement in feed, food, and beverage industries as well as a chemical intermediate. At present, great efforts are made to further decrease the cost of lysine to make it more competitive in the markets. Furthermore, lysine also shows potential as a feedstock to produce other high-value chemicals for active pharmaceutical ingredients, drugs, or materials. In this review, the current biomanufacturing of lysine is first presented. Second, the production of novel derivatives from lysine is discussed. Some chemicals like L-pipecolic acid, cadaverine, and 5-aminovalerate already have been obtained at a lab scale. Others like 6-aminocaproic acid, valerolactam, and caprolactam could be produced through a biological and chemical coupling pathway or be synthesized by a hypothetical pathway. This review demonstrates an active and expansive lysine industry, and these green biomanufacturing strategies could also be applied to enhance the competitiveness of other amino acid industry.

A preliminary study on l-lysine fermentation from lignocellulose feedstock and techno-economic evaluation.

l-Lysine is a commodity amino acid produced from starch feedstock. Various alternative feedstocks had been used for l-lysine production, but the yield was very low. This study took the first prelimina...

Small molecules as tools to study the chemical epigenetics of lysine acetylation.

Lysine acetylation has emerged as a key post-translational modification found at many sites throughout the cell. It plays an important role in epigenetic processes, and more generally in the regulatio...

Lysine Methylation: Implications in Neurodegenerative Disease.

Lysine methylation is well-documented and relatively well-understood with respect to histone modification and the epigenetic regulation of gene expression. Enzymes called lysine methyltransferases (KM...

Efficient mining of natural NADH-utilizing dehydrogenases enables systematic cofactor engineering of lysine synthesis pathway of Corynebacterium glutamicum.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An enzyme that activates lysine with its specific transfer RNA. EC

A PYRIDOXAL PHOSPHATE containing enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of amino group of L-LYSINE onto 2-oxoglutarate to generate 2-aminoadipate 6-semialdehyde and L-GLUTAMATE.

A metallocarboxypeptidase that removes C-terminal basic amino acid from peptides and proteins, with preference shown for lysine over arginine. It is a plasma zinc enzyme that inactivates bradykinin and anaphylatoxins.

An enzyme that catalyzes the methylation of the epsilon-amino group of lysine residues in proteins to yield epsilon mono-, di-, and trimethyllysine. EC

A histone-lysine N-methyltransferase and catalytic subunit of Polycomb Repressive Complex 2. It methylates LYSINE 9 (H3K9me) and LYSINE 27 (H3K27me) of HISTONE H3, leading to transcriptional repression of the affected target gene. EZH2 also methylates non-histone proteins such as GATA4 TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR and the nuclear receptor RORA. It regulates CIRCADIAN CLOCKS via histone methylation at the PROMOTER REGIONS of the circadian genes and its repressive activity is also important for the identity and differentiation of EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS.
