MetaCyc Enzyme: type III polyketide synthase

Gene: PKS4 Accession Number: G-11462 (MetaCyc)

Species: Aloe arborescens

Summary:
A cDNA clone was isolated from aloe plants by cDNA library screening. The cDNA was recombinantly expressed in E.coli and functionally characterized, the cDNA encodes a sequence, PKS4, that shares 85-96% identity with the previously reported octaketide synthase. This enzymes produces the shunts SEK4 and SEK4b octoketides. The enzyme catalyzes the sequential condensations of eight molecules of malonyl-CoA to produce octaketides [Mizuuchi09].

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 44.3 kD (from nucleotide sequence), 44.0 kD (experimental) [Mizuuchi09 ]

Enzymatic reaction of: octoketide 4b synthase (type III polyketide synthase)

8 malonyl-CoA + 7 H+ <=> octoketide 4b + 8 CO2 + 8 coenzyme A + H2O

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.

The reaction is favored in the direction shown.

In Pathways: barbaloin biosynthesis
