2,4-Dienoyl-CoA reductase functions in the reductive removal of double bonds extending from even-numbered carbon atoms in unsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids.
The product of the reaction catalyzed by E. coli FadH is 2-trans-enoyl-CoA, in contrast with the bovine enzyme, which produces 3-trans-enoyl-CoA. FadH is able to catalyze the reduction of 2-trans,4-cis and 2-trans,4-trans isomers with almost equal efficiency [Dommes84]. This is not due to a cis-trans isomerase activity of the enzyme [Liang00]. Kinetic data first suggested that the reaction proceeds via a ping-pong mechanism [He97]. A crystal structure of the enzyme has been solved at 2.2 Å resolution. A possible electron transfer pathway from the electron source, NADPH, via FAD, the 4Fe-4S cluster, and FMN was proposed, and the authors conclude that a ping-pong kinetic mechanism is unlikely [Hubbard03]. Site-directed mutagenesis was used to identify residues involved in catalysis and to support the proposed reaction mechanism [Tu08].
Expression is induced by growth on oleate and is subject to catabolite repression [Dommes84, You89]. Regulation of fadH expression was later shown to be complex and involves three independent regulators, FadR, ArcA, and cAMP-CRP [Feng10, Feng12a] as well as HipB [Lin13a].
