Genetic analysis of the histidine operon control region of Salmonella typhimurium.

Biochemical and regulatory properties of Escherichia coli K-12 hisT mutants

The hisT mutants studied have a reduced growth rate that appears to be linked to hisT, although it is not known whether it is due to the same mutation.

Histidine regulatory mutants in Salmonella typhimurium II. Histidine regulatory mutants having altered histidyl-tRNA synthetase.

Catalytic defects in mutants of class II histidyl-tRNA synthetase from Salmonella typhimurium previously linked to decreased control of histidine biosynthesis regulation.

The kinetic analysis of five S. typhimurium bradytrophic mutants establishes a direct link between critical interactions within the active site of HisRS and regulation of histidine biosynthesis, and provides further evidence for the importance of local conformational changes during the catalytic cycle.

Mutations in the spoT gene of Salmonella typhimurium: effects on his operon expression

roximately 40% of these mutants are temperature sensitive for growth on minimal medium, suggesting that the spoT function is essential or that excessive accumulation of ppGpp is lethal.

The genetic control of the enzymes of histidine biosynthesis in Salmonella typhimurium.

It has been found that the level of activity of the series of enzymes of Histidine biosynthesis can be raised about 15-fold over the wild-type level by growing a histidine-requiring mutant on formylhistidine as a source of histidine.

MUTANTS OF SALMONELLA TYPHIMURIUM RESISTANT TO FEEDBACK INHIBITION BY L-HISTIDINE.

Under appropriate conditions, it should be possible to obtain mutants capable of producing an enzyme which is resistant to feedback inhibition but enzymatically active, and the possibility that such proteins have two distinct sites, a feedback inhibition site and an active site is suggested.

Regulatory Mechanisms in the Biosynthesis of Isoleucine and Valine II. Identification of Two Operator Genes

Derepression of the condensing enzyme resulting from mutations in oprB confers resistance to low levels of valine, and to α-aminobutyric acid, and the significance of these findings with respect to the valine sensitivity of E. coli strain K-12 is discussed.
