Abstract
The industrial production of lactic acid (LA) is mainly based on bacterial fermentation. This process can result in enantiopure or racemic mixture according to the producing organism. Between the enantiomers, L-lactic acid shows superior market value. Recently, we reported a novel anaplerotic pathway called capnophilic lactic fermentation (CLF) that produces a high concentration of LA by fermentation of sugar in the anaerobic thermophilic bacterium <i>Thermotoga neapolitana</i>. The aim of this work was the identification of the enantiomeric characterization of the LA produced by <i>T. neapolitana</i> and identification of the lactate dehydrogenase in <i>T. neap...
