General information
Name of the gene or DNA sequence
5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase
Abbreviation
CS-EPSPS
Category of DNA sequence
  • Protein coding sequence
Is the gene / DNA sequence is a synthetic molecule?
No
Donor organism
Donor organism
Arthrobacter globiformis - Arthrobacter
Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate-synthase
Biological function
The enzyme participates in biosynthesis of the aromatic amino acids phenylalanine, tyrosine and tryptophan. The enzyme is a target for herbicides as these amino acids are only synthesized in plants and microorganisms. Glyphosate acts as a competitive inhibitor for phosphoenolpyruvate, as substrate of EPSPS, and is used as a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide.
