MetaCyc Protein Class: a 3,4-dihydroxybenzoyl-[AsbD acyl-carrier protein]

Superclasses: a modified protein

Summary:
AsbD is an aryl-carrier protein that activates protocatechuate prior to its incorporation into petrobactin. The AsbD protein itself needs to be activated by the transfer of a 4'-phosphopantetheine group from coenzyme A to serine 40 of the apo form, resulting in the active holo form, in a manner similar to other acyl- and aryl-carrier proteins.

The AsbC protein catalyzes the adenylation of protocatechuate, followed by the transfer of the adenylated intermediate to the holo-asbD protein, resulting in a 3,4-dihydroxybenzoyl-[AsbD acyl-carrier protein] [Pfleger07].

Once activated, the protocatechuate moiety can be transferred by AsbE from a 3,4-dihydroxybenzoyl-[AsbD acyl-carrier protein] to different receipient molecules, including N-citryl-spermidine, N8,N'8-citryl-bis(spermidine) and N1-(3,4-dihydroxybenzoyl)-N8,N'8-citryl-bis(spermidine) [OvesCostales08].
