  • Several growth characteristics of Escherichia coli K-12 suggest that growth on l-fucose results in the synthesis of all the enzymes necessary for growth on d-arabinose. Conversely, when a mutant of E. coli is grown on d-arabinose, all of the enzymes necessary for immediate growth on l-fucose are present. Three enzymes of the l-fucose pathway in E. coli, l-fucose isomerase, l-fuculokinase, and l-fuculose-l-phospháte aldolase possess activity on d-arabinose, d-ribulose, and d-ribulose-l-phosphate… CONTINUE READING
