Carrier protein that bears the covalently bound substrates for arginine and lysine biosynthesis; bound L-glutamate is sequentially converted to L-ornithine, while bound alpha-aminoadipate (AAA) is sequentially converted to L-lysine.1 Publication

Miscellaneous

Binds zinc ions via its zinc finger domain, as shown by X-ray crystallography (PubMed:23434852). In contrast, the absorption spectrum of the ortholog from Thermophilus suggests that it may bind iron ions, possibly via the predicted zinc finger domain.1 Publication

Formation of an isopeptide bond between the gamma-carboxyl group of the C-terminal glutamate and the amino group of alpha-aminoadipate (AAA) is catalyzed by LysX. The bound AAA is then converted to L-lysine in a series of reactions catalyzed by LysZ, LysY and LysJ. Release of the product L-lysine is catalyzed by LysK. Formation of an isopeptide bond between the gamma-carboxyl group of the C-terminal glutamate and the amino group of L-glutamate is catalyzed by ArgX. The bound substrate is then sequentially converted to ornithine which is eventually converted to L-arginine (PubMed:23434852).1 Publication

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1. The algorithm is described in the ISO 3309 standard. </p> <p class="publication">Press W.H., Flannery B.P., Teukolsky S.A. and Vetterling W.T.<br /> <strong>Cyclic redundancy and other checksums</strong><br /> <a href="http://www.nrbook.com/b/bookcpdf.php">Numerical recipes in C 2nd ed., pp896-902, Cambridge University Press (1993)</a>)</p> Checksum:iC72792074AD8585A
