MetaCyc Enzyme: sulfolactate dehydrogenase

Gene: slcD Accession Numbers: G-12225 (MetaCyc), ISM_13310

Species: Roseovarius nubinhibens ISM

SlcD catalyzes a sulfolactate dehydrogenase activity in cell extracts of Roseovarius nubinhibens ISM. Activity was dependent on an artificail electron acceptor (ferricyanide), and could not be restored with NADP+, NAD+, FAD, FMN or cytochrome c [Denger09].

The enzyme was found in both the soluble and particulate fractions of the cell extract, but activity in the particulate fraction was much higher, indicating that the enzyme is membrane-bound. Activity with (S)-lactate was about 10% of the activity with (RS)-3-sulfolactate.

The enzyme was partially (10-fold) purified, but purity was not sufficient to obtain amino acid sequence. However, the enzyme is believed to be encoded by the slcD gene, since it is present in the same operon as other enzymes involved in sulfolactate degradation, and encodes a membrane-bound 2-hydroxyacid dehydrogenase. In addition, the gene is transcribed inducibly during growth on sulfolactate [Denger09].
