Subunit composition of
fructose bisphosphate aldolase class II = [FbaA]2
fructose bisphosphate aldolase monomer = FbaA
This enzyme catalyzes a reversible aldol cleavage/condensation reaction during glycolysis and gluconeogenesis in E. coli. In the glycolytic direction fructose 1,6-bisphosphate (FBP) is cleaved to produce glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate and dihydroxyacetone phosphate (glycerone phosphate).
Two types of FBP aldolases have been distinguished, Class I and Class II. Class I FBP aldolases utilize an active site lysine residue to form a Schiff-base between the ε-amino group of lysine and the carbonyl group of the substrate. They also vary in subunit stoichiometry. Class II FBP aldolases are dimeric and utilize a divalent metal ion in catalysis via a similar mechanism. The Class I enzymes of eukaryotes have been well studied [Thomson98, Baldwin78a, Baldwin78, Stribling73, Alefounder89a].
E. coli is one of a few organisms that expresses both classes of FBP aldolase [Stribling73, Baldwin78]. The Class I enzyme encoded by fbaB is induced by gluconeogenic substrates, whereas the Class II enzyme encoded by fbaA is constitutive. When E. coli K-12 is grown on C-3 carbon sources both classes of aldolase are present, although the Class I enzyme is present only under these conditions. Therefore the Class I enzyme is most likely involved in gluconeogenesis and the Class II enzyme in glycolysis [Scamuffa80].
The E. coli enzyme resembles the typical class II aldolase from yeast in size and amino acid composition, strongly suggesting that they are related. These aldolases are found both in the eukaryotic green algae and fungi, and in the prokaryotic cyanobacteria and other bacteria [Baldwin78a].
A number of studies provided initial characterizations of the enzyme including mutant phenotypes [Bock66a, Bock66, Schreyer73, Su75, Irani77], gene localization [Ruffler73, Alefounder89], its metabolic regulation [Thomas72, Babul93], and evidence for its modification by phosphate [Babul88] and 2-mercaptoethanol [Packman95].
The enzyme has been cloned, overexpressed and purified in high yield [Henderson94]. Like other Class II enzymes, FbaA requires a divalent metal ion for activity. Zn2+ is isolated with the enzyme, but several other metal ions including Co2+, Fe2+ and Mn2+ can form an active metalloprotein complex [Scamuffa80]. His108 and His111 were identified as the zinc-binding ligands [Berry93]. The Arg331 residue is involved in substrate binding [Qamar96]. Asn286, Asp109 [Plater99], Asn35, Ser61, Lys325 [Zgiby00], and Glu182 [Zgiby02] also have roles in catalysis. A reaction mechanism has been proposed based on NMR spectroscopic data that involves an enzyme-bound enediol(ate) form of dihydroxyacetone phosphate as an intermediate [Szwergold95].
Following initial crystallization studies [Naismith92, Kitagawa95], crystal structures of the enzyme have been solved at 1.67 and 2.50 Å resolution [Blom96, Cooper96]. Crystal structures were also solved at 2.0 Å resolution in complex with phosphoglycolohydroxamate [Hall99], and with Cd2+ replacing Zn2+ at the active site [Hall03].
The ts8 and h8 mutations cause temperature-sensitive growth and inhibit stable RNA synthesis at the non-permissive temperature. Both mutations are located in the fbaA gene [Singer91a, Singer91]. The ts8 mutation was also shown to destabilize ptsG mRNA at the nonpermissive temperature [Morita03].
An fda mutant exhibits a heat-sensitive defect in rRNA transcription that is elicited via altered abundance of ppGpp and of initiating NTPs [Schneider03].
Directed evolution studies have resulted in fructose bisphosphate aldolase variants with increased temperature and organic solvent stability [Hao04]. The enzyme has also been engineered for increased activity toward N-Cbz-aminoaldehyde derivatives [Gutierrez11].
Competitive phosphoglycolosulfamate inhibitors of of the E. coli enzyme have been synthesized [Gavalda05]. Nickel toxicity in E. coli has been shown to be due to binding of nickel to the non-catalytic zinc site [Macomber11].
An NMR spectroscopy technique has been used for relaxation measurements of the E. coli enzyme [Burnley07]. Structural dynamics simulations of FbaA showed that dimerization stabilizes its structure and facilitates its catalytic mechanism [Katebi15].
A series of vectors inducibly expressing paired-terminus antisense RNAs was constructed to silence central carbon metabolism in host E. coli K-12 MG1655. A vector that silenced fbaA at 81% efficacy did not cause severe growth inhibition [Nakashima14].
