Cloning, characterization, and engineering of fungal L-arabinitol dehydrogenases

Abstract

L-Arabinitol 4-dehydrogenase (LAD) catalyzes the conversion of L-arabinitol to L-xylulose with concomitant NAD+ reduction in fungal L-arabinose catabolism. It is an important enzyme in the development of recombinant organisms that convert L-arabinose to fuels and chemicals. Here, we report the cloning, characterization, and engineering of four fungal LADs… (More)
