Subunit composition of
Δ1-pyrroline-4-hydroxy-2-carboxylate deaminase = [LhpC]8
Δ1-pyrroline-4-hydroxy-2-carboxylate deaminase subunit = LhpC
This enzyme catalyzes the third step in the bacterial 4-hydroxy-L-proline degradation pathway (see trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline degradation II). It is a unique member of the dihydropicolinate synthase/N-acetylneuraminate lyase family. Its encoding gene is contained within the 4-hydroxy-L-proline degradation operon of this organism [Watanabe12].
Disruption of the gene encoding this enzyme lead to loss of growth on both L-hydroxyproline and D-hydroxyproline, but not L-proline and D-proline, suggesting the specificity of this pathway for 4-hydroxy-L-proline degradation [Watanabe12].
Recombinant His6-tagged enzyme was overexpressed in Escherichia coli and purified. The native apparent molecular mass was approximately 275 kDa by gel filtration chromatography. The subunit apparent molecular mass was 35 kDa by SDS-PAGE, which suggested a homooctamer [Watanabe12].

In Pathways: trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline degradation II
This enzyme was assayed spectrophotometrically in a coupled assay using α-ketoglutaric semialdehyde dehydrogenase and monitoring the increase in absorbance of the NADPH produced [Watanabe12].
In earlier work the enzyme was found to be inducible when the the organism was grown on hydroxyproline as sole carbon and nitrogen source. The enzyme was shown to be highly substrate-specific. A reverse reaction could not be detected. The reaction product was characterized as 2,5-dioxovalerate [Singh65].
