MetaCyc Enzyme: 4-oxalocrotonate decarboxylase

Gene: amnE Accession Number: G-11252 (MetaCyc)

Species: Pseudomonas sp. AP3

Subunit composition of 4-oxalocrotonate decarboxylase = [AmnE]
         4-oxalocrotonate decarboxylase monomer = AmnE

4-oxalocrotonate decarboxylase has been purified from Pseudomonas sp. AP3 to homogeneity [Takenaka00]. The protein was found to form a large complex (300 kDa) with the hydratase encoded by amnF, which catalyzes the next step of the pathway. The ratio of decarboxylase to hydratase subunits within the complex was 1:1.

The enzyme required either Mg2+ or Mn2+ for activity, and was sensitive to several metal ions, including Fe2+, Fe3+, Ag+ and Hg2+ [Takenaka00].

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 27.456 kD (from nucleotide sequence), 29.0 kD (experimental) [Takenaka00 ]
