Alternative forms of holo-EntB dimer: 2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl-EntB
The EntB protein is bifunctional, the N-terminal domain contains the isochorismate lyase (isochorismatase) activity and the C-terminus contains the aryl carrier protein (ArCP) domain. The isochorismatase activity of the entB gene product catalyzes the second step in both the overall enterobactin biosynthetic pathway (see pathway enterobactin biosynthesis) and in the first part of the pathway, the conversion of chorismate to 2,3-dihydroxybenzoate (see pathway 2,3-dihydroxybenzoate biosynthesis) [Rusnak90, Staab90].
The ArCP domain of apo-EntB becomes phosphopantetheinylated in a reaction catalyzed by the entD gene product, phosphopantetheinyl transferase. The holo-EntB dimer (holo-EntB) formed can now serve as a substrate for the entE product, a 2,3-dihydroxybenzoate-AMP ligase that activates 2,3-dihydroxybenzoate as the acyl-AMP derivative and transfers the acyl moiety onto holo-EntB. The arylated holo-EntB product (2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl-EntB) then serves as the aryl donor for the amide bond formation in enterobactin assembly [Gehring97, Gehring98].
The crystal structure of this two domain protein has been determined at 2.3 Å resolution. Its two functionally independent domains are joined by a proline-rich linker. Functional analysis of EntB and EntE mutants probed the interaction between these two proteins [Drake06].
Based on gel filtration data, EntB was originally suggested to be a pentamer [Rusnak90] and later suggested to be a trimer [Gehring98]. However subsequent gel filtration and crystallographic data showed it to be a dimer [Drake06]. Cell lysis and fractionation studies have led to the proposal that a large fraction of the Ent synthase proteins EntB, EntE and EntF is in contact with membranes, or in close proximity to membranes [Hantash00].
A biophysical study of EntE substrate binding and the interaction between EntE and EntB showed that complex formation is most efficient in the presence of 2,3-dihydroxybenzoate [Khalil09]. The thioesterase EntH has been proposed to potentially function in the prevention or reversal of EntB misacylation events [Chen09, Guo09a]. Using combinatorial mutagenesis and selection, the interaction surface between the ArCP domain of holo-EntB and holo-EntF was mapped [Lai06, Lai06a].
Studies of a reduced-genome E. coli suggested that genes entB, marR, dosC, mcbR and yahK were involved in biofilm formation. Overproduction of entB and yahK promoted biofilm development and maturation [May11].

Enterobactin contains three units of 2,3-dihydroxybenzoylserine joined in a cyclic structure by lactone linkages. Studies have suggested that the later steps of enterobactin synthesis are carried out by a multienzyme complex consisting of the entD, entE, entF and entB gene products [Hantash97].
Proteins EntB, EntD, EntE and EntF of the enterobactin synthase multienzyme complex have been purified and characterized, but no evidence has been obtained for the existence of a stable multienzyme complex. These proteins are required for the ATP-dependent conversion of three molecules each of 2,3-dihydroxybenzoate and L-serine to enterobactin [Gehring97, Gehring98, Drake06].
Proteins EntB, EntE and EntF together contain domains that comprise a nonribosomal peptide synthase (NRPS). EntE provides an adenylation domain, EntB provides an aryl carrier protein domain (located at its C-terminus), and EntF provides condensation, adenylation, peptidyl carrier protein, and chain-releasing thioesterase domains. Thus, six domains of three proteins comprise a two-module NRPS [Ehmann00]. EntD is a phosphopantetheinyl transferase that adds this cofactor to the peptidyl carrier protein domains of EntB and EntF [Gehring97]. The activities of EntE, the EntB C-terminal domain, and EntF assemble enterobactin in an iterative manner [Drake06, Ehmann00].
