Synonyms: yfhW, hcaa3, phdB

Regulation summary diagram for hcaC

Component of: 3-phenylpropionate dioxygenase system (summary available)

Summary:
Based on sequence similarity, HcaC is thought to encode the ferredoxin component of the 3-phenylpropionate dioxygenase system [Diaz98]. Partially purified HcaC protein was shown to contain a [2Fe-2S] iron-sulfur cluster that can be reduced by dithionite, but not ascorbate, identifying it as a low-potential Rieske iron-sulfur cluster protein [Boxhammer08]. 3-phenylpropionate dioxygenase has not been biochemically characterized.

E. coli is able to utilize certain aromatic acids as carbon and energy sources. A meta-cleavage pathway involving HcaC is used for the catabolism of 3-phenylpropionate [Burlingame83, Diaz98].

HcaC: "hydroxycinnamic acid" [Diaz98]
