Corynebacterium Glutamicum is a gram-positive soil bacterium that is widely used for the production of a variety of amino acids. The ability of C. glutamicum strains to produce certain amino acids results from several improvements made through repeated random mutations and selection. L-ornithine is an important constituent of the urea cycle and the precursor of other amino acids such as citrulline, glutamic acid, and proline. It plays key function to discharge amino nitrogen and solve ammonia toxicity. Recently, Lornithine is widely applied in the fields of the function beverage, diet, health care, liver-protecting, anticancer, and in the food and medicine industry.
