MetaCyc Enzyme: bifunctional 3-demethylubiquinone-8 3-O-methyltransferase and 2-octaprenyl-6-hydroxyphenol methylase

Gene: ubiG Accession Numbers: EG11143 (MetaCyc), b2232, ECK2224

Synonyms: pufX, yfaB

Species: Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655

Subunit composition of bifunctional 3-demethylubiquinone-8 3-O-methyltransferase and 2-octaprenyl-6-hydroxyphenol methylase = [UbiG]2

Summary:
UbiG is an O-methyltransferase that catalyzes both O-methylation reactions in the biosynthesis of ubiquinone.

The enzyme is mostly cytoplasmic, but also shows some association with the membrane [Leppik76].

A genetic interaction between ubiX and ubiG was shown, suggesting that UbiX interacts with UbiG [Zeng98, Gulmezian06]. Expression of UbiX can restore the final O-methylation reaction of the ubiquinone biosynthesis pathway in the IS16 mutant strain with the UbiG L132Q mutation [Gulmezian06].

Two leaky ubiG mutants accumulate 2-octaprenylphenol and OMHMB [Stroobant72]. An independently isolated ubiG mutant is unable to grow aerobically on non-fermentable substrates [Wu92], and ubiG deletion mutants are respiration defective and thus unable to grow on succinate [Hsu96] or glycerol [Joyce06] as the sole source of carbon.

Regulation of ubiG expression has been described [Gibert88].

N-terminally hexahistidine tagged UbiG has been expressed, crystallized, and subjected to preliminary crystallographic studies. The data suggested the presence of one molecule per asymmetric unit in the crystal [Xing11]. Earlier gel filtration data showed an apparent molecular mass of approximately 50 kDa, suggesting a homodimer [Leppik76].

ubiG, ubiF, ubiX, ubiH, and ubiE mutants from the Keio K-12 mutant collection showed elevated resistance to the broad-spectrum antibiotic D-cycloserine (DCS) when grown in complex media, suggesting that they may be involved in DCS sensitivity [Baisa13].
