Disease relevance of aroK


High impact information on aroK

  • Three of the suppressors carried Tn5 in the aroK or aroB gene, the first two cistrons in the dam operon [2].
  • The reason for this difference is interpreted in terms of starvation for aromatic amino acids under carbon-limitation which is relieved under phosphate-limitation due to an upregulation of aroK and aroA [3].
  • The translational start point of aroK is some 84 bp downstream of the site proposed earlier and the reading frame ends 169 bp beyond the stop site reported in the previous sequence [4].

Biological context of aroK


Associations of aroK with chemical compounds

  • We propose that urf1 encodes shikimate kinase I and that it be designated aroK [1].
