|Gene:||gdhA||Accession Number: G-8963 (MetaCyc)|
Species: Halobacterium salinarum
Subunit composition of
glutamate dehydrogenase (NAD-dependent) = [GdhA]6
NAD-glutamate dehydrogenase subunit = GdhA
Halobacterium salinarum is one of the organisms reported to have more than one form of GDH, with different forms utilizing different cofactors (NAD and NADP) [Bonete89, Bonete90]. It was eventually shown that the organism has four genes encoding four different glutamate dehydrogenase enzymes [Ingoldsby05]. Two of these gene products have been purified and characterized biochemically [Bonete96, PerezPomares99]. One of the genes, gdhA1, which was originally predicted to encode an NADP-specific form [Benachenhou91], was found to encode an NAD-specific enzyme, suggesting that sequence information alone in not sufficient to predict the cofator specificity of GDH [Ingoldsby05].
