EC Number: 188.8.131.52
In Pathway: methylglyoxal degradation II
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.
Mass balance status: Balanced.
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: D-lactate dehydratase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: glyoxylase III
Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): 16.64711 [Latendresse13]
Enzyme Commission Summary:
The enzyme converts methylglyoxal to D-lactate in a single glutathione (GSH)-independent step. The other known route for this conversion is the two-step GSH-dependent pathway catalysed by EC 184.108.40.206 (lactoylglutathione lyase) and EC 220.127.116.11 (hydroxyacylglutathione hydrolase).
