The enzyme from Escherichia coli is a multifunctional protein, which also catalyses the reaction of EC 22.214.171.124 homoserine dehydrogenase. This is also the case for two of the four isoenzymes in Arabidopsis thaliana. The equilibrium constant strongly favours the reaction from right to left, i.e. the non-physiological direction of reaction.
