Disease relevance of acpT

  • We report genetic and biochemical evidence that AcpT modifies two carrier proteins encoded in O-island 138, a cluster of fatty acid biosynthesis-like genes located adjacent to acpT in the genome of the pathogenic E. coli strain O157:H7 (E. coli K-12 and several other sequenced E. coli and Shigella strains lack O-island 138) [1].

High impact information on acpT

  • We demonstrate that AcpT cannot functionally replace AcpS in E. coli K-12 either in its native chromosomal location or upon insertion of acpT into the acpS chromosomal location [1].
  • Three PPTases have been previously been identified in Escherichia coli K-12 and other E. coli strains by homology searches and are encoded by the genes acpS, entD and acpT [1].
