Gensor Unit       
Name: IlvY
Description: IlvY positively regulates the expression of genes involved in reactions that are part of the L-isoleucine, L-valine, and phosphopantothenate biosynthesis pathways in the presence or absence of (S)-2-acetolactate. The reactions entail transformation of 2-dehydropantoate to (R)pantoate, of (S)-2-acetolactate to (R)-2,3-dihydroxy-isovalerate, and of (S)-2-aceto-2-hydroxybutanoate to (R)-2,3-dihydroxy-3-methylvalerate; these intermediates correspond to the phosphopantothenate, L-valine, and L-isoleucine biosynthetic pathways, respectively.
