- Agmatine deiminase pathway genes in Lactobacillus brevis are linked to the tyrosine decarboxylation operon in a putative acid resistance locusPatrick M Lucas
UMR 1219, Universite Bordeaux 2, INRA, ISVV, Talence, France
Microbiology 153:2221-30. 2007..These results support the hypothesis that the agmatine deiminase and tyrosine catabolic pathways belong to a genomic region that provides acid resistance and that is exchanged horizontally as a whole between LAB...

UMR 1219, INRA Université Victor Segalen Bordeaux 2, Talence, France
Appl Environ Microbiol 74:811-7. 2008..Strains of O. oeni producing histamine are frequent in wine during malolactic fermentation, but they may lose this capacity during subcultures in the laboratory...
