Disease relevance of ilvG


Psychiatry related information on ilvG


High impact information on ilvG

  • One orientation of Tn10 insertions in ilvG and ilvE permits low-level expression of the downstream ilvEDA and ilvDA genes, respectively [3].
  • They have acetolactate synthase activity that is insensitive to sulfometuron methyl because of mutations in or near ilvG, the structural gene for acetolactate synthase isozyme II [4].
  • As a result, cells were starved for valine, and both ilvB (encoding acetohydroxy acid synthase I) and ilvGEDA (ilvG encodes acetohydroxy acid synthase II) were derepressed [5].
  • Examination of ilv enzyme levels confirms that the direction of transcription of ilvGEDA is from ilvG to ilvA [2].
