Description
Biotin-protein ligase (EC 6.3.4.15) activates biotin to form biotinyl 5' adenylate and transfers the biotin to biotin-accepting proteins. It also functions as a biotin operon repressor. The protein is encoded by the birA gene. Other names for this enzyme include: biotin ligase; biotin operon repressor protein; birA; biotin holoenzyme synthetase; biotin-(acetyl-CoA carboxylase) synthetase.

Applications

  • Western blot
  • Functional Studies of enzyme kinetics
  • Screening inhibitors and selectivity profiling
