|Gene:||pmdD||Accession Number: G-2543 (MetaCyc)|
Species: Comamonas testosteroni
2-pyrone-4,6-dicarboxylate hydrolase was purified from 4-hydroxybenzoate-grown Comamonas testosteroni. The molecular weight was 42.8 kD by gel filtration and 37.2 kD by SDS-PAGE [Kersten82]. Inhibition studies suggested that the hydrolase might possess a functioning sulfhydryl group at its catalytic site. The reaction is reversible.
