Enzymatic reaction of: galactarate dehydratase
Synonyms: galactarate dehydrase, D-galactarate hydro-lyase, GalcD
EC Number: 188.8.131.52
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction of enzyme catalysis.
The reaction is physiologically favored in the direction shown.
Galactarate dehydratase is catalytically inactive in the absence of Fe2+, Mn2+ and β-mercaptoethanol; however, under certain conditios, the enzyme is inhibited by Mn2+ [Hubbard98].
The enzyme was originally isolated from E. coli strain CR63MA, but is present in other strains including K-12 [Blumenthal64].
Inhibitors (Unknown Mechanism): cacodylate [Blumenthal66] , phosphate [Blumenthal66] , citrate [Blumenthal66] , potassium cyanide [Blumenthal66, Blumenthal64] , diphosphate [Blumenthal66, Blumenthal64]
pH(opt): 7.5 [Hubbard98]
