Determining the structure of an essential enzyme for amino acids synthesis


​​
​In collaboration with the Synchrotron Group of the Institute of Structural Biology, researchers of the Plant Cell Physiology Laboratory ​in our institute have determined the three-dimensional structure of aspartate kinase in a model plant, Arabidopsis. This discovery is an important step in the study of a biosynthetic pathway with broad food applications.
