This study describes the molecular and biochemical characterization of kynurenine aminotransferase (KAT) from Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. Through screening an A. aegypti larval cDNA library, a 1695-bp full-length cDNA clone with a 1434-bp open reading frame (ORF) was isolated. Its deduced amino acid sequence consists of 477 amino acid residues with a predicted molecular mass of 53,490 and the amino acid sequence shares 47 and 42% identity with KATs from Homo sapiens and Rattus norvegicus… CONTINUE READING
