Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Protein: α subunit complex



Gene: ttdA Accession Numbers: EG11168 (EcoCyc), b3061, ECK3051

Synonyms: ygjA

Regulation Summary Diagram: ?

Component of: L-tartrate dehydratase (summary available)

Subunit composition of α subunit complex = [TtdA]2
         L-tartrate dehydratase, α subunit = TtdA

Summary:
The ttdA gene encodes the α-subunit of the L-tartrate dehydratase enzyme [Reaney93] and is expressed in exponentially growing cells [Nesin87].

Expression of ttdA is activated by the LysR-type transcriptional activator TtdR in the presence of L-tartrate and meso-tartrate and is repressed by O2 and nitrate (Unden, Paris). Binding of TtdR to the ttdA-ttdR intergenic region has been shown [Kim09b]. Anaerobic induction depends on FNR [Kim09b].

TtdA appears to be involved in biofilm formation. A mutant with a deletion of ttdA shows a significant decrease in biofilm formation [Herzberg06].

Expression of ttdA increases 11-fold upon deletion of tqsA, which increases biofilm formation [Herzberg06].

Enzymatic reaction of: L-tartrate dehydratase

Synonyms: L+-tartrate dehydratase, (R,R)-tartrate hydro-lyase, tartrate dehydratase

EC Number: 4.2.1.32

L-tartrate <=> oxaloacetate + H2O

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction of enzyme catalysis.

This reaction is reversible.
