Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Protein: predicted 5-keto 4-deoxyuronate isomerase

Gene: kduI Accession Numbers: G7463 (EcoCyc), b2843, ECK2841

Synonyms: yqeE

Regulation Summary Diagram: ?

Subunit composition of predicted 5-keto 4-deoxyuronate isomerase = [KduI]6
         predicted 5-keto 4-deoxyuronate isomerase monomer = KduI

KduI is a predicted 5-keto 4-deoxyuronate isomerase due to its high sequence similarity to the enzyme from Erwinia chrysanthemi. In unpurified form, the enzyme appears to be able to utilize both glucuronate and galacturonate, perhaps catalyzing the same reaction as UxaC. While UxaC expression is repressed under osmotic stress conditions, KduI expression appears to be unaffected, and it could therefore substitute for UxaC [Rothe13].

Crystal structures of KduI have been solved [Dunten98, Crowther05]. The enzyme binds a metal ion tentatively identified as Zn2+ and is structurally similar to members of the cupin superfamily of proteins [Crowther05]. In vivo homomultimeric KduI interaction can be detected in cross-linking experiments [Zheng11].

KduI was identified as a protein whose expression is 8-fold lower in E. coli found in the cecum of mice that were fed a casein diet compared to mice fed a starch diet [Rothe12a]. Expression of kduI is increased in the presence of galacturonate and glucuronate [Rothe13].
