During the enzymatic production of L-phenylalanine exploiting L-phenylalanine ammonia lyase(E.C and trans-cinnamic acid, the conversion yield of L-phenylalanine and the stability of L-phenylalanine ammonia-lyase per so or induced Rhodotorula glutinis IFO 0559 were investigated. And the glycerol added to the conversion reaction as stabilizer had effect only on L-phenylalanine and made it possible to obtain the 80% conversion yield from trans-cinnamic acid. In addition, the more rapid and reliable method than the thin layer chromatography for determining the conversion yield will be disscused.
