What are the major differences? Are the sequences a similar length? If not why are they different? Differences in the amino acid sequences must account for resistance to glyphosate. You will find several differences, but we know that the key changes are around amino acid 100. Look at this region to see what differences in amino acids are there. How may these account for the bacterial enzyme being resistant to glyphosate inhibition? [See Schonbrumm et al., (2006) Proc Natl Acad Sci 103:13010-13015, full text available on line].
This question belongs to biology and discusses about major differences in amino acids and amino acid sequences must account for resistance to glyphosate.
