The inhibition of 1-deoxy-D-xylulose-5-phosphate reductoisomerase (DXR) by fosmidomycin was studied by using a kinetic assay based on the consumption of NADPH and synthetic substrate. Fosmidomycin is a slow tight-binding inhibitor of DXR that shows strong negative cooperativity (absolute value(h) = 0.3) in binding. Cooperativity is displayed during the(More)
1-Deoxy-D-xylulose-5-phosphate (DXP) is a key intermediate in the non-mevalonate pathway to terpenoids in bacteria, and it is the substrate for the enzyme 1-deoxy-D-xylulose-5-phosphate reductoisomerase (DXP-R). In order to study the mechanism of DXP-R, we required a flexible synthesis of the substrate which would allow the incorporation of isotopic labels,(More)
