MetaCyc Enzyme: cinnamoyl-CoA lyase / cinnamoyl-CoA hydratase

Species: Hypericum androsaemum

Summary:
This enzyme activity could be detected in desalted cell free extracts in the absence of NAD+ and CoA. Although the identities of the final end products, acetyl-CoA and benzaldehyde were confirmed, the intermediate product, 3-hydroxy-3-phenylpropanoyl-CoA was never recovered leading the researchers to suggest that a single bi-functional enzyme catalyzes two sequential reactions [Abd02]. There is some precedent for the existence of a similar dual activity enzyme, feruloyl-CoA hydratase / lyase in Pseudomonas fluorescens [Gasson98, Narbad98].

Further ammonium sulfate fractionation led to an enrichment of the cinnamoyl-CoA hydratase/lyase activity in the 40-50% fraction [Abd02]. This partially purified enzyme had the highlest level of activity with cinnamoyl-CoA, minor activity (33%) with 3-coumaroyl-CoA, and no activity with 4-coumaryl-CoA or 2-coumaroyl-CoA in vitro [Abd02].

The activity of this enzyme in cell cultures appears to be up-regulated by methyl jasmonate. This plant signaling defense compound also stimulates the activity of several other enzymes in the benzoate biosynthesis III (CoA-dependent, non-β-oxidative) pathway, and precedes a rise in the production of xanthones, a class of secondary metabolites made in Hypericum androsaemum [Abd02].
