Prediction of the structure and function of AstA and AstB, the first two enzymes of the arginine succinyltransferase pathway of arginine catabolism.

Abstract

Arginine succinyltransferase and succinylarginine dihydrolase catalyze the first two steps of arginine catabolism by the arginine succinyltransferase pathway. This route is the only major arginine catabolic pathway in Escherichia coli including its pathogenic strains O157 and CFT073. We have used fold recognition tools and identified novel homologies… (More)
