The present invention provides a genetically modified microbial cell for production of lysine, comprising a transgene encoding a polypeptide capable of exporting lysine from the cell. The genetically modified microbial cell for production of lysine may be further characterized by genetic modifications that confer reduced lysine metabolism and/or enhanced lysine synthesis as compared to the parent cell from which said genetically modified cell was derived. The invention further provides a method for producing lysine using the genetically modified microbial cell. The invention further provides a novel family of lysine transporter polypeptides; and the use of said polypeptide to enhance production of extracellular lysine in a microbial cell.
