  • Homoserine Transacetylase
  • Published 2002


Homoserine transacetylase (EC, the first enzyme of methionine biosynthesis, has been purified to near homogeneity from extracts of a methionine auxotroph of Bacillus polymyxa. The enzyme is subject to rapid irreversible inactivation. Its half-life at 0” is 15 min and much less at higher temperatures, but ethylene glycol affords some protection. In… (More)
