AccessionGenProp1070
Namebeta-glutamate biosynthesis
TypePATHWAY
DescriptionBeta-glutamate is an osmolyte produced in one step from glutamate by the action of glutamate 2,3-aminomutase. The eam gene, encoding glutamate 2,3-aminomutase, is often preceded by a ydaO (yuaA) family riboswitch, which appears to bind a metabolite that indicates cellular stress.
