|Gene:||liuA||Accession Number: G-12368 (MetaCyc)|
Species: Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1
Subunit composition of
isovaleryl-CoA dehydrogenase = [LiuA]4
isovaleryl-CoA dehydrogenase subunit = LiuA
The native apparent molecular mass was determined by gel filtration chromatography [ForsterFromme08].
This enzyme is a terpenoid-specific, FAD-dependent acyl-CoA dehydrogenase that catalyzes the formation of a carbon-carbon double bond in methyl-branched substrates, similar to citronellyl-CoA dehydrogenase. The gene encoding this enzyme is part of the L-leucine and isovalerate utilizing liuABCDE gene cluster in this organism. A liuA insertion mutant was unable to utilize acyclic terpenes, L-leucine or isovalerate, but could utilize succinate [ForsterFromme08] (see pathways citronellol degradation, cis-genanyl-CoA degradation and L-leucine degradation I).

In Pathways: L-leucine degradation I
Acyl-CoA dehydrogenase activity was assayed by measuring the reduction of oxidized DCPIP at 600 nm. The enzyme was highly specific for isovaleryl-CoA. It utilized butanoyl-CoA, but with less efficiency. It did not utilize octanoyl-CoA, 5-methylhex-4-enoyl-CoA, (S)-3-hydroxybutanoyl-CoA, isobutanoyl-CoA, or citronellyll-CoA [ForsterFromme08a].
