In Pathway: NAD biosynthesis I (from aspartate)
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.
Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.
Mass balance status: Balanced.
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: L-aspartate oxidase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: NadB, Laspo, AO
First reaction in quinolinate biosynthesis, required for the de novo biosynthesis of NAD.
Enzyme Commission Summary:
A flavoprotein (FAD). L-Aspartate oxidase catalyses the first step in the de novo biosynthesis of NAD+ in some bacteria. oxygen can be replaced by fumarate as electron acceptor, yielding succinate [Bossi02]. The ability of the enzyme to use both O2 and fumarate in cofactor reoxidation enables it to function under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions [Bossi02]. 2-iminosuccinate can either be hydrolysed to form oxaloacetate and ammonia or can be used by EC 220.127.116.11, quinolinate synthase, in the production of quinolinate. The enzyme is a member of the succinate dehydrogenase/fumarate reductase family of enzymes [Bossi02].
