MetaCyc Enzyme: D-uronate dehydrogenase

Gene: udh Accession Numbers: G-11981 (MetaCyc), Atu3143

Species: Agrobacterium fabrum C58

Subunit composition of D-uronate dehydrogenase = [Udh]6
         D-uronate dehydrogenase moomer = Udh

Summary:
The enzyme was induced by growth of the organism on D-galacturonate [Boer10]. In earlier work using Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain II BN V6 the enzyme was shown to be induced by growth of the organism on both D-galacturonate and D-glucuronate [Chang69].

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]. The protein forms a hexamer in solution [Parkkinen11].

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 [Moon09a].

The enzyme was shown to accept both α and β anomers of the pyranose form of the substrate D-galacturonate [Boer10]. Using D-glucuronate as substrate, a sudy using circular dichroism analysis suggested that the reaction product was D-glucarate [Yoon09]. A subsequent study using NMR analysis of reactants and products suggested that the actual product of the enzyme's action on galacturonate was D-galactaro-1,4-lactone, which was shown to be stable at cytosolic pH [Boer10]. However, later work showed that the actual product is D-galactaro-1,5-lactone [Andberg12].

Neither D-galactose nor D-galactonate were substrates [Boer10].

Crystal structures have been reported for an apo-form, a ternary form in complex with NADH and product (substrate-soaked structure), and an inactive Y136A mutant in complex with NAD [Parkkinen11]. The crystal structure showed that the enzyme can accept only the β form of D-galacturonate as a substrate, as the O1 hydroxyl group of α-D-galacturonate would clash with the nicotinamide ring of NAD+. This was corroborated by the observation that the β-anomeric form is consumed faster than the α-anomer. Once consumed, the rate of the reaction matches that of the mutarotation from the α to the β from [Parkkinen11].

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].
