Identification of Active Site Residues of the Siderophore Synthesis Enzyme PvdF and Evidence for Interaction of PvdF with a Substrate-Providing Enzyme
TLDR
A co-purification assay showed that PvdF binds to an enzyme PvdA that catalyses synthesis of hydroxyornithine, with this interaction likely to increase the efficiency of fOHOrn synthesis, advance understanding of how P. aeruginosa synthesises pyoverdine, a key factor in host–pathogen interactions.
Nonribosomal Peptide Synthesis Definitely Working Out of the Rules
TLDR
A constantly expanding literature unravels new examples of nonribosomal synthetases exhibiting very rare domains and noncanonical organizations of domains and modules, leading to several amazing strategies developed by microorganisms to synthesize nonribsomal peptides.
Biosynthetic Pathways to Nonproteinogenic α-Amino Acids.
TLDR
Recently discovered biosynthetic routes to freestanding nonproteinogenic α-amino acids are reviewed, with an emphasis on work reported between 2013 and mid-2019.

New role for the ankyrin repeat revealed by a study of the N-formyltransferase from Providencia alcalifaciens.
TLDR
Results provide the first example of an ankyrin repeat functioning in small molecule binding in prokaryotic enzymes, and the identity of the ligand that regulates QdtF activity in vivo is at present unknown.
An enzymatic pathway for the biosynthesis of the formylhydroxyornithine required for rhodochelin iron coordination.
TLDR
A major improvement to this study has been reached with the use of an alternative approach to the chemoenzymatic FolD-dependent N(10)-fH(4)F conversion, also rescuing the previously inactive CchA, the Rft-homologue in coelichelin assembly line.
Two Structures of an N-Hydroxylating Flavoprotein Monooxygenase
TLDR
Structural and biochemical evidence indicates that NADP+ remains bound throughout the oxidative half-reaction, which is proposed to shelter the flavin intermediates from solvent and thereby prevent uncoupling of NADPH oxidation from hydroxylated product formation.
Structure of a sugar N-formyltransferase from Campylobacter jejuni.
TLDR
A structural and functional investigation of the protein C8J_1081 from Campylobacter jejuni 81116 is described, which is involved in the biosynthesis of Qui3NFo, and it is demonstrated that WlaRD is also capable of utilizing dTDP-3,6-dideoxy-3-amino-d-galactose as a substrate, albeit at a much reduced catalytic efficiency.
Involvement of a transformylase enzyme in siderophore synthesis in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
TLDR
The characterization of the pvdF gene, which is required for synthesis of the siderophore pyoverdine by Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain PAO1, is described, and the first example of involvement of a GART-type enzyme in synthesis of a secondary metabolite is provided.
Identification of new, conserved, non‐ribosomal peptide synthetases from fluorescent pseudomonads involved in the biosynthesis of the siderophore pyoverdine
TLDR
Computer modelling of the adenylation domains of PvsA, PvdL and their homologues, revealed that their N‐terminus starts with an acyl‐CoA ligase module, followed by three amino acid activation domains, which suggests that Pvs a in P. fluorescens and PvdL inP.
On the cofactor specificity of glycinamide ribonucleotide and 5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide ribonucleotide transformylase from chicken liver.
TLDR
This finding suggests that the trifunctional protein modulates GAR transformylase cofactor specificity by supplying the active cofactor as the N10-formyl species, possibly through a transport process that avoids its dissociation into solution.
Molecular structure of an N‐formyltransferase from Providencia alcalifaciens O30
TLDR
Comparison of the VioF model to that of a previously determined N‐formyltransferase suggests that substrate specificity is determined by interactions between the protein and the pyrophosphoryl group of the dTDP‐sugar substrate.
Structure of crystalline Escherichia coli methionyl‐tRNA(f)Met formyltransferase: comparison with glycinamide ribonucleotide formyltransferase.
TLDR
The present work describes the structure of crystalline E.coli FMT and biochemical evidence is presented for the involvement of these two idiosyncratic regions (the flexible loop in the N‐terminal domain, and the C‐ terminal domain) in the binding of the tRNA substrate.
