Different biosynthetic pathways of the pyrimidine moiety of thiamin in prokaryotes and eukaryotes


Biochimica et Biophysica Acta 756(1): 41-48
Different biosynthetic pathways of the pyrimidine moiety of thiamin in prokaryotes and eukaryotes
[14C]Formate is incorporated into the C-2 of the pyrimidine moiety of thiamin by Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, it is incorporated into C-4. Radioactive carbons of [1-14C]glycine and [2-14C]glycine are incorporated by S. typhimurium into the C-4 and C-6 of the pyrimidine, respectively, but not by S. cerevisiae. Procaryotes and eucaryotes probably have different biosynthetic pathways for pyrimidine. The procaryotes tested incorporated [14C]formate into the C-2 and the eucaryotes incorporated it into the C-4 of the pyrimidine.
