In Pathway: uracil degradation III
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
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: 3-hydroxypropionate dehydrogenase (NADP+)
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: 3-hydroxypropanoate dehydrogenase (NADP+), 3-hydroxypropionate:NADP+ oxidoreductase
Enzyme Commission Summary:
Catalyses the reduction of malonate semialdehyde to 3-hydroxypropionate, a key step in the 3-hydroxypropionate and the 3-hydroxypropionate/4-hydroxybutyrate cycles, autotrophic CO2 fixation pathways found in some green non-sulfur phototrophic bacteria and archaea, respectively [Strauss93, Berg07]. The enzyme from Chloroflexus aurantiacus is bifunctional, and also catalyses the upstream reaction in the pathway, EC 220.127.116.11 [Hugler02]. Different from EC 18.104.22.168 [3-hydroxypropionate dehydrogenase (NAD+)] by cofactor preference.
