Comments "Experimentally observed serine uptake from the medium significantly contributed to the production of pyruvate in the intracellular metabolism. The uptake rate of serine during the exponential growth phase was 3.35 mmol/gDCW/h. The excess serine consumption was primarily converted into pyruvate through the action of enzyme serine deaminase."
