In plants, the rate-limiting step in the pathway for lysine synthesis is catalyzed by the enzyme dihydrodipicolinate synthase (DS), which is encoded by the DapA gene. We previously cloned the soybean (Glycine max cv. Century) DapA gene in Escherichia coli to express functional soybean DS protein. Like the wild-type soybean DS enzyme, the DS activity encoded by the cloned gene was extremely sensitive to feedback inhibition by micromolar concentrations of lysine. Three mutants of the soybean DapA gene were constructed using PCR: one with a single amino acid substitution at codon 104, another with a single amino acid substitution at codon 112, and a mutant containing both modifications. When expressed in E. coli, the mutant DS activities were insensitive to lysine at concentrations up to 1 mM.
