Disease relevance of SCO6271

  • A derivative of BAP1 was engineered that harbors the AHBA biosynthetic operon, the bicistronic RifA construct and the pccB and accA1 genes from Streptomyces coelicolor, which enable methylmalonyl-CoA biosynthesis [1].

High impact information on SCO6271

  • Strains disrupted in accA1 did not show any change in acetyl- or propionyl-CoA carboxylase activity, whilst cell-free extracts of a pccB mutant strain contained a reduced level of propionyl-CoA carboxylase [2].
  • Heterologous expression of accA1, accA2 and pccB in Escherichia col and in vitro reconstitution of enzyme activity confirmed that PccB is the beta subunit of a propionyl-CoA carboxylase and that either AccA1 or AccA2 could act as the alpha component of this enzyme complex [2].
