Cover for Lysine biosynthesis in microorganisms.

Lysine is an essential amino acid that is synthesized in plants and microorganisms via two metabolic routes which evolved independently. Fungi and some archaeal species employ the intermediate α-aminoadipate to anabolize lysine. Bacteria and photosynthetic cohorts, in contrast, employ the...

Cover for Hydroxyproline metabolism in microorganisms.

L-Hydroxyproline (L-Hyp) has been detected in certain proteins, particularly collagen, as well as in some peptide antibiotics. In mammalian systems, the L-proline residue in procollagen is post-translationally hydroxylated to trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline (T4LHyp) or trans-3-hydroxyl-proline (T3 LHyp). ...

Cover for Flavour formation from leucine by lactic acid bacteria (LAB).

Leucine belongs to the branched-chain amino acids, which in lactic acid bacteria (LAB) can be intracellularly converted into different aromatic compounds through various enzymes and metabolic routes. The aldehyde 3-methylbutanal, the alcohol 3-methylbutanol and the carboxylic acid 3-methylbutyric...

Cover for The biosynthesis of tryptophan.

In microorganisms and plants, L-tryptophan is biosynthesized from chorismate by a series of seven enzyme-catalysed reactions. The enzymes pathway has attracted attention both as a source of therapeutic targets and because of its evolutionary details. This chapter describes the enzymatic steps...

Cover for The kynurenine pathway of tryptophan metabolism in microorganisms.

In this chapter, the kynurenine pathway in bacteria, archaea, unicellular fungi and protists is reviewed. The kynurenine pathway is the major catabolic pathway for L-tryptophan metabolism in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. There are two different kynurenine pathways, sometimes called 'inducible' and...

Cover for Microbial degradation of amino acids in anoxic environments.

In the absence of terminal electron-acceptors such as sulfate, nitrate or molecular oxygen, only a few fermenting bacteria (Firmicutes) can catabolize amino acids. For every one of the 20 proteinogenic amino acids, at least one degradation pathway is known. Many pathways involve radical...
