Proline biosynthesis in Corynebacterium glutamicum . Reactions and enzymes of the proline and ornithine biosynthetic pathways of Corynebacterium glutamicum are depicted together with the reaction catalysed by ornithine cyclodeaminase (OCD): glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) encoded by gdh, γ-glutamyl kinase (GK) encoded by proB, γ-glutamyl phosphate reductase (GP) encoded by proA, pyrroline-5-carboxylate reductase (P5C) encoded by proC, N‒acetylglutamate synthase (NAGS) activity, N‒acetylglutamate kinase (NAGK) encoded by argB, N‒acetyl‒γ‒glutamyl‒phosphate reductase (ArgC) encoded by argC, acetylornithine aminotransferase (ArgD) encoded by argD, ornithine acetyltransferase (OAT) encoded by argJ, and OCD encoded by ocd.
