Phosphoribosylpyrophosphate synthetase (PrsA) variants alter cellular pools of ribose 5-phosphate and influence thiamine synthesis in Salmonella enterica.


Phosphoribosylamine (PRA) is the first intermediate in the common purine/thiamine biosynthetic pathway and is primarily synthesized by the product of the purF gene, glutamine phosphoribosylpyrophosphate (PRPP) amidotransferase (E.C. Past genetic and biochemical studies have shown that multiple mechanisms for the synthesis of PRA independent of… (More)
