Oxalacetate is an essential carbon structure precursor for amino acids in the aspartate family and the metabolic scheme for this family is given in Figure 12.8. Asparagine is produced from aspartate by aspartate kinase which requires NH, and ATP. In Lactobacillus arabinosus and related bacteria, asparagine inhibits and represses synthesis of aspartate kinase. In E. coli. the formation of methionine, isoleucine, threonine, and ...
