Lactococcus lactis is part of the lactic acid bacteria. It is used a lot as an industrial bacterium for the production of milk and cheese. During the production process L. lactis slowly runs out of a carbohydrate source to use as energy, has to switch glycolysis pathways and then choose another different pathway when complete carbohydrate starvation has been achieved. This thesis briefly looks at the processes the L. lactis cell goes through during carbohydrate starvation, how it tries to combat the increasingly harsh living circumstances and if its stress response is comparable to the stringent response of Escherichia coli.
