Glyoxalase III converts methylglyoxal to D-lactate in a single glutathione (GSH)-independent step. The other known route for this conversion is the two-step GSH-dependent pathway catalyzed by glyoxalase I and II, methylglyoxal degradation I. Glyoxalase III was partially characterized by [Misra95a], although the gene encoding the enzyme was not identified at that time. It was recently shown that glyoxalase III is identical to Hsp31 in E. coli [Subedi11].
Hsp31 was first identified as a chaperone that interacts with partially and fully denatured proteins [Sastry02, Malki03]. At elevated temperatures, Hsp31 homodimers bind to substrates undergoing denaturation, and upon temperature decrease the chaperone dissociates from the renatured substrates [Sastry02]. Hsp31 appears to have weak proteolytic activity using BSA as a substrate [Lee03]; others have found no endo- or exopeptidase activity [Malki03, Zhao03b]. Later, Hsp31 was shown to have an aminopeptidase activity with short peptide substrates that is abolished in a C185A mutant [Malki05].
Hsp31 may bind ATP, but does not hydrolyze it [Sastry02, Malki03]. ATP induces conformational changes within Hsp31 and is inhibitory with respect to chaperone activity at high temperatures [Sastry02].
Each Hsp31 monomer comprises two domains separated by a flexible linker region [Quigley03, Quigley04]. Crystal structures are presented at 1.6 Å [Quigley03], 2.2 Å [Zhao03b], 2.7 Å [Quigley04] and 2.8 Å [Lee03] resolution. Analysis of a variety of mutants identified the linker-loop region of Hsp31 as a gate which may control access of nonnative proteins to the high-affinity substrate binding site and which is thermally activated [Sastry04]. Extensions of Hsp31 with histidine tags at either its N- or C-terminus abolish chaperone activity [Sastry09].
An hchA mutant has a growth defect at 48°C and is strongly affected in its ability to recover from transient exposure to 50°C [Mujacic04]. In stationary phase, an hchA mutant is more sensitive to methylglyoxal [Subedi11] and acid stress [Mujacic07] than wild type.
Unlike glyoxalases I and II, glyoxalase III activity increases at the transition to stationary phase; the increase is dependent on RpoS [Benov04]. Glyoxalase III activity is not induced by growth in the presence of methylglyoxal [OkadoMatsumoto00]. Expression of hchA is induced by heat shock [Richmond99]. hchA is a member of the σS stress regulon [Mujacic06], and Hsp31 expression is also induced by osmotic stress [Weber06]. The stability of the hchA transcript is higher at increased temperature [Rasouly07].
