Abstract

Summary: The expression of genes complementing arginine auxotrophs of was studied. The activity responsible for the formation of ornithine in was identified as a repressible ornithine acetyltransferase (genetic symbol ) encoded by the same DNA fragment as the and genes. and displayed the same pattern of enzyme activities as . In contrast to previous reports, these organisms consequently use the cyclic pathway of ornithine biosynthesis. also possesses a broad specificity aminoacylase which exhibits low affinity towards -acetyl--ornithine.
