MetaCyc Reaction: 3.1.1.76

Superclasses: Reactions Classified By Conversion TypeSimple ReactionsChemical Reactions
Reactions Classified By SubstrateSmall-Molecule Reactions

EC Number: 3.1.1.76

Enzymes and Genes:

Pseudomonas fluorescens GK13: extracellular poly(3-hydroxyoctanoate) depolymeraseInferred from experiment: phaZ
Pseudomonas putida KT2442: intracellular poly(3-hydroxyoctanoate) depolymeraseInferred from experiment: phaZ

The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.

Mass balance status: Balance undetermined; a substrate lacks a chemical formula

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: poly(3-hydroxyoctanoate) depolymerase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: PHO depolymerase, poly(3HO) depolymerase, poly[(R)-hydroxyalkanoic acid] depolymerase, poly(HA) depolymerase, poly(HAMCL) depolymerase, poly[(R)-3-hydroxyoctanoate] hydrolase

Taxonomic Range: Bacteria

Enzyme Commission Summary:
The reaction also occurs with other medium-chain-length (C(6)-C(12)) hydroxyalkanoic acids.

The enzyme can also hydrolyze copolymers of medium-chain-length (MCL) hydroxyalkanoic acids and p-nitrophenyl esters of fatty acids, but short-chain-length hydroxyalkenoic acids such as poly[(R)-3-hydroxybutanoic acid] and poly[(R)-3-hydroxypentanoic acid] are not hydrolyzed.

There are two types of polymers: native (intracellular) granules are amorphous and have an intact surface layer; denatured (extracellular) granules either have no surface layer or a damaged surface layer and are partially crystalline.
