Abstract


We have determined the nucleotide sequences of two structural genes of the Escherichia coli gab cluster, which encodes the enzymes of the 4-aminobutyrate degradation pathway: gabD, coding for succinic semialdehyde dehydrogenase (SSDH, EC 1.2.1.16) and gabP, coding for the 4-aminobutyrate (GABA) transport carrier (GABA permease). We have previously reported the nucleotide sequence of the third structural gene of the cluster, gabT, coding for glutamate: succinic semialdehyde transaminase (EC 2.6.1.19). All three gab genes are transcribed unidirectionally and their orientation within the cluster is 5'-gabD-gabT-gabP-3'. gabT and gabP are separated by an intergenic region of 234-bp, which contains three repetitive extragenic palindromic (REP) sequences. The gabD gene consists of 1,449 nucleotides specifying a protein of 482 amino acids with a molecular mass of 51.7 kDa. The protein shows significant homologies to the NAD(+)-dependent aldehyde dehydrogenase (EC 1.2.1.3) from Aspergillus nidulans and several mammals, and to the tumor associated NADP(+)-dependent aldehyde dehydrogenase (EC 1.2.1.4) from rat. The permease gene gabP comprises 1,401 nucleotides coding a highly hydrophobic protein of 466 amino acids with a molecular mass of 51.1 kDa. The GABA permease shows features typical for an integral membrane protein and is highly homologous to the aromatic acid carrier from E. coli, the proline, arginine and histidine permeases from Saccharomyces cerevisiae and the proline transport protein from A. nidulans. Uptake of GABA was increased ca. 5-fold in transformants of E. coli containing gabP plasmids.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
