Disease relevance of ADP1

  • Acinetobacter calcoaceticus ADP1 accumulates wax esters and TAGs as intracellular storage lipids [1].
  • Heterologous expression of WS/DGAT from A. calcoaceticus ADP1 in S. cerevisiae H1246 restored TAG but not steryl ester biosynthesis, although high levels of ASAT activity could be demonstrated for WS/DGAT expressed in Escherichia coli XL1-Blue in radiometric in vitro assays with cholesterol and ergosterol as substrates [2].

High impact information on ADP1

  • ABCP, white, and ADP1 all have a single ATP-binding domain at the NH2 terminus and a single COOH-terminal set of transmembrane segments [3].
  • The bifunctional wax ester synthase/acyl-coenzyme A:diacylglycerol acyltransferase (WS/DGAT) is the key enzyme in storage lipid accumulation in the gram-negative bacterium Acinetobacter calcoaceticus ADP1, mediating wax ester, and to a lesser extent, triacylglycerol (TAG) biosynthesis [2].
  • YCR105 is immediately centromere proximal to the PGK gene (opposite strand) on the right arm of chromosome III about 20 kb from the centromere [4].
  • The product of the YCR105 gene located on the chromosome III from Saccharomyces cerevisiae presents homologies to ATP-dependent permeases [4].
