Abstract. Lysine 194 in conserved stretch 1 of tetrameric isocitrate lyase from Escherichia coli has been replaced by using the restriction-enzyme-site elimination method of directed mutagenesis. Expression of subunits of each variant and of wild-type (wt) enzyme was equivalent and all variants assembled into tetrameric proteins. The variants K194R and K194H had kcat values relative to that of wt enzyme taken as 100 of 11 and 7, respectively. Km values for Mg2+-Ds-isocitrate (in mM units) were… 
Amino acid residues involved in cold adaptation of isocitrate lyase from a psychrophilic bacterium , Colwellia
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of ICLs from various organisms revealed that the C. maris ICL can be categorized in a novel group, subfamily 3, together with several eubacterial ICLes, and play important roles in its cold adaptation.

Phylogenetic analysis of ICLs from various organisms revealed that the C. maris ICL can be categorized in a novel group, subfamily 3, together with several eubacterial ICL’s, and play important roles in its cold adaptation.
Cysteine 195 Has a Critical Functional Role in Catalysis by Isocitrate Lyase from Escherichia coli
TLDR
Results are consistent with a functional role of Cys 195, which has been replaced by directed mutagenesis in isocitrate lyase from Escherichia coli.
2-Methylisocitrate lyases from the bacterium Escherichia coli and the filamentous fungus Aspergillus nidulans: characterization and comparison of both enzymes.
TLDR
In Escherichia coli and Aspergillus nidulans, propionate is oxidized to pyruvate via the methylcitrate cycle, the last step of which is catalysed by 2-methylisocitrate lyase, a native homotetrameric structure as identified by size-exclusion chromatography.
Distant Phe345 mutation compromises the stability and activity of Mycobacterium tuberculosis isocitrate lyase by modulating its structural flexibility
TLDR
The conformational flexibility of MtbICL is studied to better understand its stability and catalytic activity and reveals internal dynamics of the enzyme structure and suggests that regions other than the active site should be exploited for targeting MtbicL inhibition and development of novel anti-tuberculosis compounds.
The cold-inducible icl gene encoding thermolabile isocitrate lyase of a psychrophilic bacterium, Colwellia maris.
TLDR
The results suggest that the icl gene, encoding thermolabile isocitrate lyase, of C. maris is important for acetate utilization and cold adaptation.
Crystal structures of 2-methylisocitrate lyase in complex with product and with isocitrate inhibitor provide insight into lyase substrate specificity, catalysis and evolution.
TLDR
A catalytic mechanism involving an alpha-carboxy-carbanion intermediate/transition state, which is consistent with previous stereochemical experiments showing inversion of configuration at the C(3) of 2-methylisocitrate is proposed.

The consequences of replacing histidine 356 in isocitrate lyase from Escherichia coli.
TLDR
The pH profile of the stability of isocitrate lyase showed that the H356R enzyme was unstable in the pH range investigated; the wt and H56R variant differed but each was sufficiently stable to study the pH dependence of catalysis.
Site-directed mutagenesis of lysine 193 in Escherichia coli isocitrate lyase by use of unique restriction enzyme site elimination
TLDR
It was found that a mutation affecting the activity of isocitrate lyase similarly affects the growth of E. coli JE10 on acetate when the mutated plasmid is expressed in this organism.
The importance of four histidine residues in isocitrate lyase from Escherichia coli
TLDR
Nondenaturing polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis demonstrated that isocitrate lyase containing the Lys, Arg, Gln, and Leu substitutions at H-184 was assembled poorly into the tetrameric subunit complex.
Serine319 and 321 Are Functional in Isocitrate Lyase from Escherichia coli
TLDR
It is proposed that Ser319 and Ser321 are involved in E. coli isocitrate lyase catalysis, perhaps by stabilizing the postulated intermediate succinate trianion in the aci-carboxylate form and the related transition state via hydrogen bonding.
Isolation, hyperexpression, and sequencing of the aceA gene encoding isocitrate lyase in Escherichia coli
TLDR
A structural gene for isocitrate lyase was isolated from a cosmid containing an ace locus of the Escherichia coli chromosome and revealed an entire aceA gene which encodes a 429-amino-acid residue polypeptide whose C-terminus is histidine.
