A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

In bacteria, the first reaction of the tryptophan biosynthetic pathway involves the conversion of chorismate and glutamine to anthranilate by the action of anthranilate synthase, which is composed of the alpha (trpE gene product) and beta (trpG gene product) subunits. In this study, the tryptophan biosynthetic gene trpE of the spirochaete Leptospira meyeri was interrupted by a kanamycin-resistance cassette by homologous recombination. The trpE double cross-over mutant was not able to grow on solid or in liquid EMJH medium. In contrast, the trpE mutant showed a wild-type phenotype when tryptophan or anthranilate was added to the media, therefore showing that disruption of the L. meyeri trpE gene resulted in tryptophan auxotrophy. The authors have also characterized a second selectable marker that allows the construction of a spectinomycin-resistant L. meyeri-E. coli shuttle vector and the functional complementation of the L. meyeri trpE mutant.
