|Gene:||ptlH||Accession Numbers: G-14661 (MetaCyc), SAV_2991|
Species: Streptomyces avermitilis
The ptlH gene from the pentalenolactone gene cluster of Streptomyces avermitilis encodes 1-deoxypentalenate 11-hydroxylase, an enzyme that catalyzes the Fe(II)- and 2-ketoglutarate-dependent hydroxylation of 1-deoxypentalenate to 1-deoxy-11β-hydroxypentalenate, a step in the biosynthesis of the sesquiterpenoid antibiotic compound pentalenolactone. The enzyme is a non-heme iron dioxygenase
The x-ray crystal structure of PtlH was determined in several complexes with the cofactors iron, 2-ketoglutarate, and the non-reactive enantiomer of the substrate, ent-1-deoxypentalenate [You07].
