Reconstitution and biochemical characterization of a new pyridoxal-5'-phosphate biosynthetic pathway. Academic Article uri icon


  • The substrates for Bacillus subtilis PLP synthase (YaaD and YaaE) are identified, and the first reconstitution of PLP biosynthesis using this pathway is described. Three partial reactions catalyzed by YaaD are also identified.
