Abstract

The structural gene () for succinyl-AMP (S-AMP) lyase and three additional ORFs are on the same DNA strand of the chromosome of Cassette mutagenesis and primer extension mapping demonstrated that is co-transcribed with an upstream gene (ORF23, or ) encoding a 22·9 kDa membrane-associated protein of non-essential, but unknown, function unrelated to purine biosynthesis. The operon lies between and an ORF expressing an essential function which may correspond to ). S-AMP lyase was purified to near homogeneity. The purified enzyme is a homotetramer of 50 kDa subunits, has a for S-AMP of 3·7 M and a pH optimum of 7·4–7·6.
