Karthikeyan KS, et al. (2008) Metabolism of lysine-chromium complex in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Indian J Microbiol 48(3):397-400
Abstract: Saccharomyces cerevisiae which cannot utilize lysine as a sole nitrogen source is shown to metabolize a Lysine 3 Cr(3+) (1:1) complex synthesized, as a combined nitrogen and carbon source. It induces rapid uptake of lysine and prevents loss of viability, in contrast with free lysine. That complexation with trivalent chromium has the effect of profoundly influencing intracellular distribution and metabolism of the liganded amino acid is demonstrated.
