Title Identification of a Direct Biosynthetic Pathway for UDP-N-Acetylgalactosamine from Glucosamine-6-Phosphate in Thermophilic Crenarchaeon Sulfolobus tokodaii.
Journal J. Bacteriol.
Abstract species lacking all three pathways were found, predicting the presence of one more unknown pathway. Identification of these novel proteins and pathways provides important insights into the evolution of nucleotide sugar biosynthesis, as well as being potentially important industrially.
