Further Notes
Publications have recently appeared on the metabolic engineering of glutamate in C. glutamicum20 and specifically for the genome sequence of a C. glutamicum mutant used in the commercial production of glutamic acid. Major producers of MSG are Ajinomoto, Fufeng, Vedan and CJ CheilJedang. In addition to MSG, L-lysine is an approved flavorant which is also manufactured using C. glutamicum strains. However, the main use is as an animal feed additive. Production of L-lysine in 2013 was estimated at 2.1 million metric tons.
