Abstract


Chorismate mutase (EC 5.4.99.5) catalyzes the first step in the branch of the shikimate pathway which leads to the aromatic amino acids, phenylalanine and tyrosine. We have isolated a cDNA for this enzyme from the higher plant, Arabidopsis thaliana, by complementing a yeast strain (aro7) with a cDNA library from A. thaliana. This is the first chorismate mutase cDNA isolated from a plant. It encodes a protein of 334 amino acids. The identity of the deduced amino acid sequence is 41% to the chorismate mutase sequence from Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The N-terminal portion of the deduced amino acid sequence has no homology to the S. cerevisiae sequence but resembles known plastid-specific transit peptides. The A. thaliana chorismate mutase expressed in yeast revealed allosteric control by the three aromatic amino acids, as previously described for plastidic chorismate mutase isozymes.
