The extremely thermophilic bacterium Thermus thermophilus HB27 synthesizes lysine through alpha-aminoadipate (AAA). In this study, a T. thermophilus gene encoding the enzyme that catalyses transamination of AAA was cloned as a mammalian kynurenine/AAA aminotransferase (Kat2) gene homologue. A T. thermophilus mutant with disruption of the Kat2 homologue required a longer lag phase for growth and showed slower growth in minimal medium. Furthermore, addition of AAA or lysine shortened the lag… Expand
Purification of three aminotransferases from Hydrogenobacter thermophilus TK‐6 – novel types of alanine or glycine aminotransferase
TLDR
This study demonstrates the presence of novel types of aminotransferase phylogenetically distinct from known eukaryotic and archaeal isozymes, and is the first report of the primary structure of bacterial glutamate:glyoxylate aminotsferase and alanine:glyxylate isinotranferase. Expand
Mechanism for multiple‐substrates recognition of α‐aminoadipate aminotransferase from Thermus thermophilus
TLDR
The results indicate that AAA‐AT can recognize various kinds of substrates using the mobile α2 helix and that intersubunit‐electrostatic interactions contribute to the elevated thermostability of this enzyme. Expand
Discovery of proteinaceous N-modification in lysine biosynthesis of Thermus thermophilus.
TLDR
The reconstituted conversion of AAA to lysine was found and it was found that the amino group of AAA is modified by attachment to the gamma-carboxyl group of the C-terminal Glu54 of a small protein, LysW, indicating that LysW acts as a carrier protein or protein scaffold for the biosynthetic enzymes.

Experimental and bioinformatic analyses of amino acid metabolism in the hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrococcus furiosus
Pyrococcus furiosus is a hyperthermophilic archaeon that grows well on complex media containing peptides and various carbohydrates. Its growth on defined media is less well characterized. In thisExpand
Mechanism of Substrate Recognition and Insight into Feedback Inhibition of Homocitrate Synthase from Thermus thermophilus*
TLDR
The crystal structure of HCS complexed with lysine showed that Lysine is bound to the active site with rearrangement of amino acid residues in the substrate-binding site, which accounts for the competitive inhibition by lysines with α-KG. Expand
Involvement of the arginine repressor in lysine biosynthesis of Thermus thermophilus.
TLDR
Results indicate that lysine biosynthesis is regulated by arginine in T. thermophilus, suggesting the involvement of argR in regulation of lysin biosynthesis. Expand

TLDR
Gel-filtration chromatography showed that Ph-KAT II exists as a homodimer and exhibited enzymatic activity that catalyzes the transamination of L-kynurenine to produce kynurenic acid. Expand
Characterization of two aminotransferases from Candida albicans.
TLDR
Results indicate that CaYer152Cp has a possible role only in aromatic amino acids degradation, in contrast to CaAro8CHp, and demonstrated that this enzyme may use 2-oxoadipate and2-oxoglutarate (2-OG) as amino acceptors. Expand
Crystal Structure of Tetrameric Homoisocitrate Dehydrogenase from an Extreme Thermophile, Thermus thermophilus: Involvement of Hydrophobic Dimer-Dimer Interaction in Extremely High Thermotolerance
TLDR
The crystal structure and mutation analysis indicate that tetramer formation is involved in the extremely high thermotolerance of TtHICDH. Expand
Crystal Structure of the LysY·LysW Complex from Thermus thermophilus*
TLDR
Structural insights suggest the formation of a TtLysWZY ternary complex, in which the flexible C-terminal extension of Tt LysW promotes the efficient transfer of the labile intermediate from the active site of TTLysZ to that of T tLysY during the sequential reactions catalyzed by Tt lysZY. Expand

Aspartate Kinase-Independent Lysine Synthesis in an Extremely Thermophilic Bacterium, Thermus thermophilus: Lysine Is Synthesized via α-Aminoadipic Acid Not via Diaminopimelic Acid
TLDR
Results indicated that in T. thermophilus, lysine was not synthesized via the diaminopimelic acid pathway, believed to be common to all bacteria, but via a pathway using alpha-aminoadipic acid as a biosynthetic intermediate. Expand
Functional and Evolutionary Relationship between Arginine Biosynthesis and Prokaryotic Lysine Biosynthesis through α-Aminoadipate
TLDR
A knockout of the argD-like gene, now termed lysJ, in T. thermophilus HB27 showed that this gene is essential for lysine biosynthesis in this bacterium and cloned an argD homolog which was not included in the previously cloned lysin biosynthetic gene cluster and determined the nucleotide sequence.

An extremely thermostable aromatic aminotransferase from the hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrococcus furiosus.
TLDR
The purified P. furiosus enzyme is by far the most thermostable aminotransferase of any type to be purified so far, indicating that both PMP and 2-ketoglutarate stabilize the enzyme at extreme temperatures. Expand

TLDR
This gene cluster was analogous in part to the present leucine and arginine biosyntheses pathways and is assumed to be one of the origins of lysine biosynthesis and could therefore become a key to the evolution of amino acid biosynthesis. Expand
