|Gene:||ligJ||Accession Number: G-2547 (MetaCyc)|
Synonyms: DMA hydratase, 4-carboxy-2-hydroxymuconate hydratase
Species: Sphingomonas sp. SYK6
Subunit composition of
4-oxalomesaconate hydratase = [LigJ]2
4-oxalomesaconate hydratase monomer = LigJ
The ligJ gene of Sphingomonas sp. SYK6, which encodes 4-oxalomesaconate hydratase, was found in the gene cluster carrying the genes for several enzymes involved in protocatechuate degradation [Hara00]. The gene was cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli, and the recombinant protein was purified to near homogeneity and characterized. The enzyme was found to be a homodimer of 69.5 kDa by gel filtration chromatography. Activity was inhibited by the addition of thiol reagents, suggesting that a cysteine residue is part of the catalytic site.
