  • bacillithiol anabolism
  • bacillithiol biosynthesis
  • bacillithiol formation
  • bacillithiol synthesis
Definition: The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of bacillithiol, the alpha-anomeric glycoside of L-cysteinyl-D-glucosamine with L-malic acid. Bacillithiol, produced widely in the Firmicutes and sporadically in other bacterial lineages, is a low-molecular-weight thiol analogous to mycothiol in the Actinomycetes and glutathione in many species. 20308541
