Tuberculostearic acid (l0-methylstearic acid, TSA) is a major constituent of mycobacterial membrane phospholipids, and its biosynthesis involves the direct methylation of oleic acid esterified as a component of phospholipids. The methyltransferases of mycobacteria were long proposed to be involved in the synthesis of methyl-branched short-chain fatty acids, but direct experimental evidence is still lacking. In this study, we identified the methyltransferase encoded by umaA in Mycobacterium… CONTINUE READING
