|About Lysine -
Lysine (abbreviated as Lys or K) is an α-amino acid with the chemical formula HO2CCH(NH2)(CH2)4NH2.
Lysine is an amino acid not produced by the body, but essential to the growth of protein
The major producers of amino acids are based in Japan, the US, South Korea, China and Europe.
Process for Lysine: Fermentation from cane molasses, Enzymatic conversion , Isolation from Natural Sources, Chemical synthesis, enzymatic recemization
There seem to be no production of L-Lysine in India at present. Lysine Monohydrochloride is produced in India by a few organizations, who import L-Lysine and chlorinate the product
Three methods are used for making amino acids: direct chemical synthesis, fermentation and bioconversion using enzymes
Choosing between processes depends on available technology, costs of raw material, market prices and sizes, cost of running fermentation
versus synthesis reactions, and the environmental impact of the process
The largest by volume of usage is the food flavoring industry.
The second largest consumer of amino acids is the animal feed industry
The pharmaceutical industry uses a variety of amino acids for making intravenous nutrient solutions for pre- and post-operative care.The Indian demand for L-Lysine is estimated to be around 1000 tonnes per annum
