Characterization and functional role of Saccharomyces cerevisiae 2,3-butanediol dehydrogenase.

Abstract

Using a conserved sequence motif, a new gene (YAL060W) of the MDR family has been identified in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The expressed protein was a stereoespecific (2R,3R)-2,3-butanediol dehydrogenase (BDH). The best substrates were (2R,3R)-2,3-butanediol for the oxidation and (3R/3S)-acetoin and 1-hydroxy-2-propanone for the reduction reactions. The… (More)
