Regulatory control of 3-deoxy-D-arabino-heptulosonic acid 7-phosphate synthetase in Streptomyces antibioticus.

Streptomyces antibioticus possesses a tryptophan-inhibitable 3-deoxy-D-arabino-heptulosonic acid 7-phosphate (DAHP) synthetase whose synthesis is also repressed by L-tryptophan. Studies of the DAHP synthetase obtained by ammonium sulfate fractionation of a crude extract derived from S. Antibioticus revealed that the enzymic activity was only partially inhibited by tryptophan. Inhibition of the DAHP synthetase activity was strongly pH dependent at values below 7. 0. A number of tryptophan analogues was noted to inhibit the enzyme; by contrast, other aromatic amino acid end products failed to affect DAHP synthetase activity. Chorismic acid, a key intermediate in aromatic amino acid biosynthesis, was ineffective as an inhibitor when used alone; however, if supplied with L-tryptophan, a further reduction of DAHP synthetase activity (15--25%) was routinely observed.[1]
