Aminodeoxychorismate (ADC) synthase in plants is a bifunctional enzyme containing glutamine amidotransferase (GAT) and ADC synthase (ADCS) domains. The GAT domain releases NH(3) from glutamine and the ADCS domain uses NH(3) to aminate chorismate. This enzyme is involved in folate (vitamin B9) biosynthesis. We produced a stable recombinant GAT-ADCS from(More)
Glutamine amidotransferase/aminodeoxychorismate synthase (GAT-ADCS) is a bifunctional enzyme involved in the synthesis of p-aminobenzoate, a central component part of folate cofactors. GAT-ADCS is found in eukaryotic organisms autonomous for folate biosynthesis, such as plants or parasites of the phylum Apicomplexa. Based on an automated screening to search(More)
The use of plants in traditional medicine become very common nowadays throughout the world and in developing countries in particular. The current study was carried out aiming to evaluate the cytotoxicity of Mallotus oppositifolius (Geisel.) Müll.-Arg (Euphorbiaceae) and Enantia polycarpa (DC) Engl. and Diels (Annonaceae) two medicinal plants mostly used for(More)
