The relationship between genes and enzymes in the methionine biosynthetic pathway has been studied in Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The first step is catalysed by an O-succinylhomoserine synthase, the product of the metA gene mapped at 20 min on the chromosome. The second step is achieved by direct sulfhydrylation, involving the enzyme encoded by a metZ gene that we have identified and sequenced, located at 40 min. Thus Pseudomonas appears to be the only organism so far described that uses O… CONTINUE READING
