Yersiniabactin (Ybt) synthetase is a three-subunit, 17-domain [7 domains in high molecular weight protein (HMWP)2, 9 in HMWP1, and 1 in YbtE] enzyme producing the virulence-conferring siderophore yersiniabactin in Yersinia pestis. The 350-kDa HMWP1 subunit contains a polyketide synthase module (KS-AT-MT(2)-KR-ACP) and a nonribosomal peptide synthetase module (Cy(3)-MT(3)-PCP(3)-TE). The full-length HMWP1 was heterologously overexpressed in Escherichia coli and purified to near homogeneity. The… CONTINUE READING
