MetaCyc Enzyme: uronate dehydrogenase

Gene: udh Accession Number: G-11981 (MetaCyc)

Species: Agrobacterium fabrum C58

Summary:
Although the enzyme from Pseudomonas syringae was shown to be a homodimer [Wagner76], the subunit structure of the enzyme from Agrobacterium fabrum C58 has not been reported.

The enzyme was induced by growth of the organism on D-galacturonate [Boer10].

The recombinant, six-His tagged polypeptide was expressed in Escherichia coli and purified. Its apparent molecular mass was determined by SDS-PAGE [Yoon09]. A recombinant, N-terminal six-His tagged enzyme has also been expressed in a yeast expression system [Boer10].

In earlier work using Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain II BN V6 the enzyme was shown to be induced by growth of the organism on D-galacturonate or D-glucuronate [Chang69].

The recombinant enzyme from Agrobacterium tumefaciens has also been used to develop an assay for D-glucuronate [Moon09].

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 29.047 kD (from nucleotide sequence), 32.0 kD (experimental) [Yoon09 ]

Enzymatic reaction of: D-galacturonate dehydrogenase

Synonyms: D-galacturonic acid dehydrogenase

EC Number: 1.1.1.203

aldehydo-D-galacturonate + NAD+ + H2O <=> D-galactarate + NADH + 2 H+

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. [Boer10]

Alternative Substrates for aldehydo-D-galacturonate: D-glucuronate [Yoon09 ]

In Pathways: superpathway of microbial D-galacturonate and D-glucuronate degradation , D-galacturonate degradation II

Summary:
Using D-glucuronate as substrate, the D-glucarate reaction product was identified by circular dichroism analysis [Yoon09].

NMR analysis of reactants and products has suggested that the actual product of the enzyme is galactarate 1,4-lactone, which was shown to be stable at cytosolic pH. However, the mechanism of its conversion to D-galactarate was not discussed [Boer10]. In the absence of spontaneous hydrolysis, a hypothetical lactonase could catalyze the reaction. The enzyme was shown to accept both α and β anomers of the pyranose form of the substrate D-galacturonate [Boer10]. Neither D-galactose nor D-galactonate were substrates [Boer10].

In earlier work using Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain II BN V6 the enzyme was shown to be induced by growth of the organism on D-galacturonate or D-glucuronate. The reaction was irreversible and NADP+ could not serve as cofactor [Chang69].
