Descriptions

Description
tryptophan synthase beta type 2
Curated Summary
TSBtype2 encodes a type 2 tryptophan synthase beta subunit that catalyzes a condensation reaction between serine and indole to generate tryptophan.It appears to form a homodimer. Its biological role has not yet been determined, but it has a very high affinity for indole which may be involved in allowing TSBtype2 to carefully limit free indole build-up. But, to date no overall change in plant morphology or seedling root growth have been observed in tsbtype2 mutants, indicating that this gene is not essential under optimum conditions. n most organs, TSBtype2 is transcripts are expressed at a lower level than TSB1 but in dry seeds they are expressed at comparable levels.
