Pentalenolactone-insensitive glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase fromStreptomyces arenae is closely related to GAPDH from thermostable eubacteria and plant chloroplasts


Streptomyces arenae produces the antibiotic pentalenolactone, a highly specific inhibitor of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH). During the phase of pentalenolactone production,S. arenae expresses a pentalenolactone-insensitive GAPDH isoform; otherwise, a pentalenolactone-sensitive form is expressed. The gene of the pentalenolactone… (More)
