MetaCyc Enzyme: indole-3-acetaldehyde oxidase / indolepyruvate decarboxylase

Species: Sulfolobus tokodaii 7

Subunit composition of indole-3-acetaldehyde oxidase / indolepyruvate decarboxylase = [indolepyruvate decarboxylase subunit a]2[indolepyruvate decarboxylase subunit b]2[indolepyruvate decarboxylase subunit c]2

Summary:
An enzyme that catalyzes both the decarboxylation of indole-3-pyruvate and the subsequent oxidation of indole-3-acetaldehyde into indole-3-acetate was purified from the thermoacidophilic archaeon Sulfolobus sp. strain 7.

The enzyme is a hexamer made up of three subunits in a stoichiometry of 2:2:2. Both molybdenum and iron were detected, and biotin was suggested to bind to the b-subunit.

The first step, the decarboxylation reaction, was highly specific for 2-oxoacids with an aromatic group, while in the second reaction, various aldehydes including glyceraldehyde, which is a glycolytic intermediate in the organism, were oxidized [Wakagi02].
