Native Escherichia coli Chloramphenicol Acetyltransferase

Cat No.
NATE-0107
Description
Chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (or CAT) is a bacterial enzyme (EC 2.3.1.28) that detoxifies the antibiotic chloramphenicol and is responsible for chloramphenicol resistance in bacteria. This enzyme covalently attaches an acetyl group from acetyl-CoA to chloramphenicol, which prevents chloramphenicol from binding to ribosomes. A histidine residue, located in the C-terminal section of the enzyme, plays a central role in its catalytic mechanism.
Abbr
CAT, Native (E. coli)
Alias
CAT; CAT I; CAT II; CAT III
Source
Escherichia coli
Applications
Chloramphenicol acetyltransferase from Escherichia coli has been used in a study to assess the construction of a novel expression system in Klebsiella pneumoniae and its application for 1,3-propanediol production. Chloramphenicol acetyltransferase from Escherichia coli has also been used in a study to investigate site-directed mutagenesis and promoter functional analysis of the RM07 DNA fragment from Halobacterium halobium. The enzyme has been used in chloramphenicol acetyltransferase assay to optimize the transfection of plasmid DNA into primary cultures of adult mouse keratinocytes. It has also been used to assess the acetyl-CoA carboxylase-carboxyltransferase (ACC-CT) domain activity. This has been done using a coupled-two phase system measuring the selective partition of [14C]acetylchloramphenicol into an organic layer.
