A gene homologous to D-ribose-5-phosphate isomerase (EC 5.3.1.6) was found in the genome of Pyrococcus horikoshii. D-ribose-5-phosphate isomerase (PRI) is of particular metabolic importance since it catalyzes the interconversion between the ribose and ribulose forms involved in the pentose phosphate cycle and in the process of photosynthesis. The gene consisting of 687 bp was overexpressed in Escherichia coli, and the resulting enzyme showed activity at high temperatures with an optimum over 90… CONTINUE READING
