Homoserine kinase (HSK) is an enzyme that catalyzes the common pathway in threonine and methionine biosynthesis in plants. The genes encoding HSK have been reported in many bacteria and some plants including Arabidopsis. Our group recently reported a gene for threonine synthase (TS) from rice. In this study, we functionally characterized a gene encoding HSK from rice ( OsHSK). Analysis of a cDNA sequence and genome of rice revealed that a full-length open leading frame of OsHSK consisted of 378… CONTINUE READING
