    ..It was not detectable immunologically in intact cells but was produced abundantly in spheroplasts. It could be a stress protein specific for spheroplasting. ..

    ..We conclude that the AST pathway is necessary for aerobic arginine catabolism in E. coli and that at least one enzyme of this pathway contributes to ornithine catabolism. ..

    ..The transcriptional regulation of the ast operon in E. coli differs from that in Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium, in which ArgR is required for ast operon expression. ..
