An Atypical α/β-Hydrolase Fold Revealed in the Crystal Structure of Pimeloyl-Acyl Carrier Protein Methyl Esterase BioG from Haemophilus influenzae.


Pimeloyl-acyl carrier protein (ACP) methyl esterase is an α/β-hydrolase that catalyzes the last biosynthetic step of pimeloyl-ACP, a key intermediate in biotin biosynthesis. Intriguingly, multiple nonhomologous isofunctional forms of this enzyme that lack significant sequence identity are present in diverse bacteria. One such esterase, Escherichia coli BioH… (More)
