|Gene:||pno||Accession Number: G-10000 (MetaCyc)|
Species: Mesorhizobium loti
Sequence analysis has shown that the pno gene of Mesorhizobium loti is similar to genes encoding pyridoxine 4-oxidase in other organisms. The gene was cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli, and found to encode an active monomeric pyridoxine 4-oxidase. This led to the finding that Mesorhizobium loti posseses a degradation pathway for pyridoxamine and pyridoxine, and is able to utilize these compounds as sole carbon and nitrogen sources.
Enzymatic activity was also measured in crude extracts of Mesorhizobium loti grown on Rhizobium medium supplemented with pyridoxine (0.63 mU/mg), demonstrating that the enzyme is expressed in its native host [Yuan04].
The cloned gene was later expressed in E. coli as a His-tagged protein, and purified to homogeneity. The purified enzyme was crystallized [Mugo12].
