    Amino acid metabolism Amino acid metabolism Presentation Transcript

    • Amino Acid Metabolism: Nitrogen Assimilation and Amino Acid Biosynthesis
    • Nitrogen Cycle
    • Nitrogenase
    • Nitrate and Nitrite to Ammonia
    • Ammonia Assimilation
    • Glutamate Dehydrogenase
    • Glutamine Synthetase (GS)
    • Glutamine back to Glutamate
    • Allosteric Modulation of GS Acitivity in Bacteria
    • Regulation of Bacterial GS by Covalent Modification
    • Glutamate serves as primary N- donor for AA synthesis through transamination reactions
    • Transamination rxns involve Pyridoxolphosphate and formation of Schiff Base
    • Essential vs. Non-Essential AA’s
    • Amino Acid Biosynthesis is a Diverse Process
