Biosynthesis of Arginine in Bacteria


In bacteria, biosynthesis of arginine proceeds from glutamate in eight enzymatic steps initiated by the acetylation of glutamate by N-Acetyl Glutamate Synthetase. The N-Acetylated intermediates lead to ornithine. The synthesis of ornithine, like that of proline, involves the activation and reduction of the 5-carboxyl group of glutamate. In prokaryotes the pathway of arginine biosynthesis follows two alternative patterns which differ by the strategies used for the removal of the acetyl group and for the control of the metaboli...
