A strategy for the introduction of ((1)H,(13)C-methyl)-alanine into perdeuterated proteins is described. Specific protonation of alanine methyl groups to a level of 95% can be achieved by overexpressing proteins in M9/D(2)O based bacterial growth medium supplemented with 800 mg/l of...

α-Isopropylmalate synthase (α-IPMS) catalyzes the metal-dependent aldol reaction between α-ketoisovalerate (α-KIV) and acetyl-coenzyme A (AcCoA) to give α-isopropylmalate (α-IPM). This reaction is the first committed step in the biosynthesis of leucine in bacteria. α-IPMS is homodimeric, with monomers consisting of...

Plants are capable to de novo synthesize the essential amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine. Studies in recent years, however, also revealed that plants have the potential to degrade leucine or may be all of the branched-chain amino acids. One...

Staphylococcus xylosus is an important starter culture in the production of flavours from the branched-chain amino acids leucine, valine and isoleucine in fermented meat products. The sensorially most important flavour compounds are the branched-chain aldehydes and acids derived from the...
