Serine biosynthesis is a major metabolic pathway in E. coli. Its end product, serine, is not only used in protein synthesis, but also as a precursor for the biosynthesis of glycine, cysteine, tryptophan, and phospholipids. In addition, it directly or indirectly serves as a source of one-carbon units for the biosynthesis of various compounds.
Regulation of the pathway is mainly accomplished by feedback inhibition of the enzyme that catalyzes the first committed step, D-3-phosphoglycerate dehydrogenase / α-ketoglutarate reductase. The second enzyme in the pathway, 3-phosphoserine aminotransferase, requires pyridoxal 5'-phosphate as a cofactor and is also required for the biosynthesis of pyridoxal 5'-phosphate itself. Thus the cell must ensure that the supply of pyridoxal 5'-phosphate is adequate. Little biochemical work has been done on the final enzyme of the pathway, phosphoserine phosphatase.
