Evolutionary implications of different types of microbial enzymology for L-tyrosine biosynthesis

Abstract

Several patterns of enzymology for L-tyrosine biosynthesis exist in modern microorganisms, each differing in the apparent degree of regulatory efficiency. The extent of pathway evolution in a particular organism may reflect the relative selective pressure for regulation encountered in different ecological niches.
