Protein

Adenosylmethionine-8-amino-7-oxononanoate aminotransferase

Gene

bioA

Organism
Escherichia coli (strain K12)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 5 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Catalyzes the transfer of the alpha-amino group from S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM) to 7-keto-8-aminopelargonic acid (KAPA) to form 7,8-diaminopelargonic acid (DAPA). It is the only animotransferase known to utilize SAM as an amino donor.1 Publication

Catalytic activityi

S-adenosyl-L-methionine + 8-amino-7-oxononanoate = S-adenosyl-4-methylthio-2-oxobutanoate + 7,8-diaminononanoate.

Cofactori

pyridoxal 5'-phosphate1 Publication

Enzyme regulationi

Inhibited by amiclenomycin. S-adenosyl-L-(2-hydroxy-4-methylthio)butyric acid and adenosine are competitive inhibitors with SAM and uncompetitive inhibitors with KAPA as substrates. S-adenosyl-L-ethionine, adenine and 8-keto-7-aminopelargonic acid are non-competitive inhibitors with both substrates.3 Publications

Pathwayi: biotin biosynthesis

This protein is involved in step 1 of the subpathway that synthesizes 7,8-diaminononanoate from 8-amino-7-oxononanoate (SAM route).
Proteins known to be involved in this subpathway in this organism are:
  1. Adenosylmethionine-8-amino-7-oxononanoate aminotransferase (bioA)
This subpathway is part of the pathway biotin biosynthesis, which is itself part of Cofactor biosynthesis.
View all proteins of this organism that are known to be involved in the subpathway that synthesizes 7,8-diaminononanoate from 8-amino-7-oxononanoate (SAM route), the pathway biotin biosynthesis and in Cofactor biosynthesis.

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
