Species: Pseudomonas putida
Subunit composition of tartrate dehydrogenase = [tartrate dehydrogenase subunit]4
tartrate dehydrogenase has been purified and crystallized from Pseudomonas putida. The enzyme catalyzes the reversible, NAD-linked oxidation of meso-tartrate and of L-tartrate to 2-hydroxy-3-oxosuccinate. D-tartrate was not a substrate. (S)-malate and (R)-malate were inactive as either substrates or inhibitors, suggesting this enzyme os different from another Pseudomonas putida enzyme that is able to catalyze this reaction (see tartrate dehydrogenase/decarboxylase).
The enzyme requires Mn2+ ions and one of several monovalent cations for activity. Both qualitative and quantitative differences were found in the requirement for monovalent cation, depending on the nature of the substrate [Kohn68].
