Chapter
Part of the Advances in Biochemical Engineering/Biotechnology book series (ABE, volume 69)

Abstract

The microbial biotechnology of amino acids production which was developed and industrialized in Japan have been summarized. The amino acids include l-glutamic acid, l-lysine, l-threonine, l-aspartic acid, l-alanine, l-cysteine, l-dihydroxyphenylalanine, d-p-hydroxyphenyl-glycine, and hydroxy-l-proline.
