Certain amino acids are substrates for two decarboxylase enzymes in Escherichia coli, one inducible by anaerobic growth at low pH and the other constitutive. In the case of lysine, an inducible decarboxylase (CadA) has been extensively characterized, but evidence for the existence of a second lysine decarboxylase is fragmentary and uncertain. This paper confirms that a second lysine decarboxylase is encoded by a locus (ldc) previously suggested to be a lysine decarboxylase gene on the basis of… CONTINUE READING
