4.2.1.108
evolution
ectoine biosynthetic genes (ectABC) are widely distributed in bacteria, ectoine synthase is a member of the cupin superfamily
Sphingopyxis alaskensis
4.2.1.108
physiological function
microorganisms that carry the ectoine biosynthetic genes (ectABC) make copious amounts of ectoine as a cell protectant in response to high-osmolarity challenges. Ectoine synthase (EctC) is the key enzyme for the production of this compatible solute and mediates the last step of ectoine biosynthesis. It catalyzes the ring closure of the cyclic ectoine molecule
