Aspergillus niger produces oxalic acid through the hydrolysis of oxaloacetate, catalyzed by the cytoplasmic enzyme oxaloacetate acetylhydrolase (OAH). The A. niger genome encodes four additional open reading frames with strong sequence similarity to OAH yet only the oahA gene encodes OAH activity. OAH and OAH-like proteins form subclass of the isocitrate lyase/PEP mutase enzyme superfamily, which is ubiquitous present filamentous fungi. Analysis of function-specific residues using a superfamily… CONTINUE READING
