dc.description.abstract Corynebacterium glutamicum is a Gram-positive facultative aerobe particularly known for its industrial application in the synthesis of amino acids, such as L-glutamate and Llysine. The central metabolic pathways of this organism has been an area of much research by many groups. Linked to glycolysis is the synthesis of glycogen, previously considered a storage molecule of excess glucose. No information concerning the role of glycogen or its metabolism in C. glutamicum was known, and the aim of this work was to elucidate glycogen metabolism in this industrially important organism. en_ZA
