Have reported that the L-lysine molecule is directly utilized in e-PL biosynthesis (Shima et al. 1983). In most bacteria, L-lysine is biosynthesized by the amino-acid biosynthetic pathway from L-aspartic acid (aspartate pathway, Fig. 4). , L-methionine, L-isoleucine, and L-threonine). 11), which reduces L-4-phospho aspartic acid into L-aspartate 4-semialdehyde. These two key enzymes are subject to complex regulation by the end-product amino acids. Because of the complexity of this pathway, different bacterial species have evolved diverse patterns of Ask regulation.
