|Gene:||ykuQ||Accession Number: G-5082 (MetaCyc)|
Species: Bacillus subtilis
Even though the enzymatic activity of tetrahydrodipicolinate acetyltransferase has been shown experimentally in some Gram-positive bacilli [Sundharadas67], the enzyme has not been purifed. The gene encoding it has been located in the B. subtilis genome by sequence similarity, and by its inclusion in a long LYS-element-regulated lysine biosynthesis operon [Rodionov03].
