Summary: The gene of has been cloned and sequenced and its expression in and analysed. The same genomic organization to that in () has been found in The and genes cannot be transcribed from their own promoters in In addition to the well-known homology at the protein level between AlaS proteins from various organisms, a strong homology was found between all the known genes from bacteria, archaea and eucarya. Two regions, one of which corresponds to the catalytic core, are particularly well-conserved at the nucleotide sequence level, a possible indication of strong constraints during evolution on these parts of the genes.
