The metabolic production of L-ornithine by an arg mutant of Acinetobacter Iwoffi using n-hexadecane as sole carbon source was studied. Time course experiments under optimised conditions showed that L-ornithine production was growth related, with maximum concentrations (10.5gl-1) accumulating in the late exponential phase of growth.
