  • The crystal structure of Escherichia coli enolase (EC 4.2.1.11, phosphopyruvate hydratase), which is a component of the RNA degradosome, has been determined at 2.5 A. There are four molecules in the asymmetric unit of the C2 cell, and in one of the molecules, flexible loops close onto the active site. This closure mimics the conformation of the substrate-bound intermediate. A comparison of the structure of the E. coli enolase with the eukaryotic enolase structures available (lobster and yeast… CONTINUE READING
