Zhu, X. and Galili, G. (2003) Increased lysine synthesis coupled with a knockout of its catabolism synergistically boosts lysine content and also transregulates the metabolism of other amino acids in Arabidopsis seeds. Plant Cell, 15,
La combinazione ha un effetto deleterio (poor germination). Association between average free Lys content and rate of seed germination …our results imply that the expression of a feedback-insensitive DHPS coupled with a reduction in Lys catabolism may be the preferred choice for increasing Lys accumulation in seeds of crop plants to remarkably high levels.
An attempt to translate the research discussed above into commercial application has been recently reported by the Monsanto/Renessen companies who generated a high-Lys maize genotype (LY038) expressing a bacterial feedback-insensitive DHDPS in an embryo-specific manner (Dizigan et al., 2007). This genotype was further used to produce a maize LY038 9 MON 810 hybrid, which also proved to be superior in broiler chicken performance, compared to the same lines that lacked the LY038 trait (Lucas et al., 2007). The LY038 maize has also been approved for commercial use in the livestock feeding industry in a number of countries. However, as indicated on the GMO Compass Internet website, the LY038 maize was subsequently withdrawn. Based on the information existing on the internet site withdrawal was apparently due to concerns made by the EU regulators on the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) GMO panel about the safety of LY038 maize for human consumption, even though LY038 maize was targeted to the feeding industry.

Increasing demand (5) P C A B S P ATP * Corynebacterium glutamicum A lysine–inducible, energy–dependent lysine exporter (lysE) has been isolated. Espressione di pompe ATP-dipedenti che sottraggono il prodotto della via metabolica. In presenza di inibizioni a feedback leffetto di stimolazione sarà ovviamente anche in altri punti lungo la via metabolica. La sottrazione del prodotto si può ottenere non solo con pompe ATP-dipendenti ma anche con altri modi (quali?). Sahm et al, FEMS Micro. Rev. 16, 243–252, (1995) Kelle et al, Biotechnol.

Maize is particularly poor in Lys and Trp The maize mutant opaque-2 (o2) shows a significant increase in Lys (+70%) & Trp. Mertz (1964) Science 145:
The mutation mainly affects the synthesis of the 22-kDa a-zein. The mutation simply increases demand: the reduction in the 22-kDa a-zein, devoid of Lys and poor in Trp is compensated by an increase in other storage proteins (albumins and globulins), leaving supply unchanged; Supply is not limiting. Essentially the same result, a large increase in Lys, is obtained by transgenesis through selective inhibition of zein isoform synthesis (Huang et al., 2004, 2005, 2006). Lys translocated to developing seeds is in excess and a substantial fraction undergoes degradation in the endosperm (Silva and Arruda, 1979).

Expression of a potato pollen-specific sb401 protein (containing 16.7% Lys) in maize grains increased both grain protein content by up to 39% as well as grain Lys content by up to 54.8% in the different transgenic lines, compared to the control maize (Onouchi et al., 2005; Yu et al., 2005) Galili and Amir (2013)
J. Lai and J. Messing (2002) Increasing maize seed methionine by mRNA stability. Plant J 30: Maize seeds … have variable levels of protein-bound met. This variability is a result of post-transcriptional regulation of the Dzs10 gene, which encodes a seed-specific high met storage protein. -Sales of synthetic methionine to animal producers exceed one billion dollars annually. - it is likely that the methionine level of the human cereal-legume diet is inadequate in many developing countries. Non-transformed hybrid (4) was compared to three different inbred lines: BSSS53 (3), which has high Dzs10 levels, Mo17 (2) with low levels, and A654 (1) with no detected Dzs10. Metionina

The level of Met increased up to 62% in transgenic rice plants expressing the sesame 2S albumin (Lee et al., 2003) and in lupin plants expressing a sunflower 2S albumin (up to 97%) (Molvig et al., 1997). Nevertheless, the Brazil nut protein and, to a lower extent, also the sunflower 2S albumin were subsequently found to be allergenic in some people, questioning their potential biotechnological use (Bartolome et al., 1997; Kelly and Hefle, 2000).
