Abstract

Within the past 18 months work has continued on the structure and mechanisms of enzymes involved in the diaminopimelic acid/lysine biosynthetic pathway. A novel structure has been determined for a PLP-independent epimerase, and structures with bound substrates have been solved for two other enzymes. Additionally, new studies have appeared describing the chemical mechanisms of three enzymes in the pathway.
