Identification of Mycoplasma pirum genes involved in the salvage pathways for nucleosides.


PMID 8349569

Abstract

Genes encoding enzymes involved in the salvage pathway for nucleosides have been cloned and sequenced from the mollicute Mycoplasma pirum. One of them, encoding deoxyriboaldolase, was functionally identified by complementation of an Escherichia coli mutant. These genes are clustered, suggesting an operon organization, and they are immediately followed by the putative gene for the triose phosphate isomerase, an enzyme used during glycolysis.
