A cluster of genes encoding the E1 alpha, E1 beta, and E2 subunits of branched-chain alpha-keto acid dehydrogenase (BCDH) of Streptomyces avermitilis has been cloned and sequenced. Open reading frame 1 (ORF1) (E1 alpha), 1,146 nucleotides long, would encode a polypeptide of 40,969 Da (381 amino acids). ORF2 (E1 beta), 1,005 nucleotides long, would encode a polypeptide of 35,577 Da (334 amino acids). The intergenic distance between ORF1 and ORF2 is 73 bp. The putative ATG start codon of the… CONTINUE READING
