Decarboxylation is the process in which bacteria that possess specific decarboxylase enzyme attack amino acids at their carboxyl end (-COOH) to yield an amine or a diamine and carbon dioxide. The amino acid L-ornithine is decarboxylate by the enzyme ornithine decarboxylase to yield the diamine putrescine and carbon dioxide. Ornithine Decarboxylase Broth is based on the Taylors modification. It is recommended by the ISO Committee for the detection of ornithine decarboxylation by Cronobacter sakazakii.
for detection of the ability of microorganisms to decarboxylate ornithine
