NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase II (NDH-2) is a type IIA NADH dehydrogenase that catalyzes the transfer of electrons from NADH to the quinone pool in the cytoplasmic membrane. NDH-2 is one of two distinct NADH dehydrogenases in E. coli. In contrast to NDH-1 (encoded by the nuo genes), NDH-2 utilizes NADH exclusively, and electron flow from NADH to ubiquinone does not generate an electrochemical gradient [Matsushita87, Hayashi89, Calhoun93].
During glucose limited aerobic growth E. coli directs electron flux through both NADH dehydrogenases [Calhoun93a]. Electron transport from NADH to oxygen is not affected in a strain lacking NDH-I but is significantly reduced in a strain lacking NDH-II; similarly nitrate respiration with NADH was only slightly affected in a strain lacking NDH-I but significantly reduced in a strain lacking NDH-II. This suggests that NDH-II is used preferentially in aerobic and nitrate respiration [Tran97].
NDH-2 is a strongly membrane-associated protein; it contains an FAD cofactor and copurifies with phospholipids [Young78, Jaworowski81, Campbell83]. Phosphatidylethanolamine appears to be required for full enzymatic activity in vivo [Mileykovskaya93]. The enzyme contains a thiolate-bound Cu(I) ion, and a putative copper binding site has been identified [Rapisarda02]. Heterooligomers of NDH-1 and NDH-2 have been identified by electrophoresis and sucrose gradient centrifugation is suggestive of a supramolecular organisation in the membrane [Sousa11].
NDH-2 can generate superoxide radicals and hydrogen peroxide by autooxidation of the FAD cofactor [Messner99] when the enzyme is overproduced or in the absence of quinones [Seaver04]. However, under regular growth conditions, it is not the primary source of intracellular hydrogen peroxide [Seaver04]. NDH-2 also has cupric reductase activity that is dependend on FAD or quinones. Under experimental conditions, the reductase activity was observed simultaneously with the dehydrogenase function linked to the respiratory chain [Rapisarda99]. NDH-2 mutants are more sensitive to copper toxicity; NDH-2 may have a role in copper homeostasis [RodriguezMontel06, Volentini11].
Sequence analysis predicts that NDH-2 contains four domains: a FAD binding domain containing a conserved FAD binding motif; and NADH binding domain with a conserved NADH binding motif, a membrane anchoring domain containing two predicted transmembrane regions and a copper binding domain containing two conserved cysteine residues that may be copper ligands [Rapisarda02]. Based on the remote similarity of NDH-2 to the SCOP family of FAD/NAD-linked reductases, a structural model of NDH-2 has been proposed [Schmid04].
The originally isolated ndh mutant [Young76] was not a single-locus mutant; it also contained a disruption of the nuo locus, encoding NDH-1 [Calhoun93]. Only strains containing mutations in both NADH dehydrogenases are unable to grow on mannitol as the sole source of carbon [Calhoun93]. Metabolic effects of an ndh null mutation alone and in combination with various other mutations have been investigated [Yun05].
