Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Enzyme: Autoinducer 2-degrading protein

Gene: lsrG Accession Numbers: G6805 (EcoCyc), b1518, ECK1511

Synonyms: yneC

Regulation Summary Diagram: ?

LsrG is an enzyme involved in the degradation of the quorum-sensing regulator Autoinducer 2 (AI-2). Purified LsrG degrades P-DPD (4-hydroxy-2,3-pentanedione-5-phosphate) [Xavier07]; it was later shown to isomerize and reduce P-DPD to P-TPO (3,4,4-trihydroxy-2-pentanone-5-phosphate) [Marques11]. 3,4-dihydroxypent-3-en-2-one 5-phosphate and 3-hydroxy-2,4-pentadione 5-phosphate are proposed to be intermediates of this reaction.

A crystal structure of the enzyme has been solved at 1.8 Å resolution. Mutants in predicted active site residues N25, E54, H65, H70 have reduced or no catalytic activity in vitro [Marques11].
