Chemical mechanism of homoisocitrate dehydrogenase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae.


Homoisocitrate dehydrogenase (HIcDH, 3-carboxy-2-hydroxyadipate dehydrogenase) catalyzes the fourth reaction of the alpha-aminoadipate pathway for lysine biosynthesis, the conversion of homoisocitrate to alpha-ketoadipate using NAD as an oxidizing agent. A chemical mechanism for HIcDH is proposed on the basis of the pH dependence of kinetic parameters… (More)
