Lysine is an essential amino acid required for the synthesis of proteins. Lysine deficiency leads to numerous irreversible damages to the brain and other body organs. It plays a vital role in the treatment of osteoporosis and Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV). Lysine is commonly produced through fermentation. However, its efficient production is still a bottle neck. The wild strains of microorganisms are unable to produce sufficient amino acid. The current study was designed to enhance the lysine production through feedback inhibition resistant strains. N-methyl-N-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine (NTG) was utilized to mutate the Corynebacterium glutamicum strain B391 to increase the production of Lysine. C. glutamicum was used as fermenting agent and cultivated in molasses-based media. S-β-aminoethyl-L-cysteine (AEC) lysine analogue resistant mutants were selected. It was observed that 30 g/L and 55 g/L of lysine were produced by the parent and mutant strains, respectively. The increase in lysine production was observed with 10% of sugar concentration in 100 mL of molasses media (6.5 pH, and temperature 30°C) with inoculum size of 8%. Furthermore, two different molasses media with different ingredients (termed M1 and M2) were used for the lysine production. The lysine production M-2 was observed more prominent.
