oxalate decarboxylase monomer = OxdC
Bacillus subtilis expresses a cytosolic oxalate decarboxylase that induced in acidic growth media, particularly at pH 5.0, but not by oxalate. The enzyme was purified, and N-terminal sequencing identified the protein to be encoded by the oxdC gene [Tanner00a]. The enzyme preferred acidic conditions, and its pH activity profile yielded a bell-shaped curve with 70% activity at pH 3.0, a maximum at pH 5.0, and zero activity at pH 7.5.
A mechanism for oxalate decarboxylation has been proposed, in which both Mn(II) and O2 are cofactors that act together as a two-electron sink during catalysis [Tanner01].
The structure of the enzyme has been determined at 1.75 Å resolution. The enzyme is a hexamer with 32-point symmetry in which each monomer belongs to the cupin family of proteins. It is classified as a bicupin because it contains two cupin folds. Each oxalate decarboxylase cupin domain contains one manganese binding site, and is structurally similar to oxalate oxidase, an enzyme that catalyzes manganese-dependent oxidative decarboxylation of oxalate to carbon dioxide and hydrogen peroxide [Anand02].
