Electrochemical and functional characterization of the proline dehydrogenase domain of the PutA flavoprotein from Escherichia coli.


The multifunctional PutA flavoprotein from Escherichia coli is a peripherally membrane-bound enzyme that has both proline dehydrogenase (PDH) and Delta(1)-pyrroline-5-carboxylate dehydrogenase (P5CDH) activities. In addition to its enzymatic functions, PutA displays DNA-binding activity and represses proline catabolism by binding to the control region DNA… (More)
