Chorismatases - the family is growing.

Five new chorismatases are described, two of them members of a new subfamily, which has been discovered through correlation analysis of homologous protein sequences, and which produces exclusively 4-hydroxybenzoate, the same compound as produced by the structurally unrelated chorISMate lyases.

Chorismatase Mechanisms Reveal Fundamentally Different Types of Reaction in a Single Conserved Protein Fold.

It is shown that the CH-FkbO and CH-Hyg5 subfamilies share the same protein fold, but employ fundamentally different reaction mechanisms, including the formation of two different hydroxybenzoate regioisomers.

Chorismate- and isochorismate converting enzymes: versatile catalysts acting on an important metabolic node.

An overview of the different (sub)families of chorismate- and isochorismat-converting enzymes, their molecular mechanisms, and three-dimensional structures, and important results of mutagenetic approaches that generate a broader understanding of the influence of distinct active site residues for product formation and the conversion of one subfamily into another are highlighted.

Comparative studies of the catalytic mechanisms of two chorismatases: CH‐fkbo and CH‐Hyg5

The calculation results support the proposal that CH‐Fkbo and CH‐Hyg5 employ different catalytic mechanisms and gave the mechanistic details.

How Chorismatases Regulate Distinct Reaction Channels in a Single Conserved Active Pocket: Mechanistic Analysis with QM/MM (ONIOM) Investigations.

The results showed that the A/G residue group mentioned by previous works would cause changes in the binding states of the substrate and the orientation of the catalytic glutamate, but only these changes affect the product selectivity in chorismatases limitedly.

High-Resolution X-Ray Structures of Two Functionally Distinct Members of the Cyclic Amide Hydrolase Family of Toblerone Fold Enzymes

It is confirmed that members of the CyAH family have the unusual Toblerone fold, albeit with some significant differences, and two new structures are presented: a barbituric acid hydrolase and an enzyme of unknown function.

Isolation of Rhp-PSP, a member of YER057c/YjgF/UK114 protein family with antiviral properties, from the photosynthetic bacterium Rhodopseudomonas palustris strain JSC-3b

The first report on the antiviral activity of a protein of the YER057c/YjgF/UK114 family and also the first antiviral protein isolated from R. palustris exhibited significant inhibitory activities against tobacco mosaic virus in vivo and in vitro.

Identification and Biosynthesis of a Novel Xanthomonadin-Dialkylresorcinol-Hybrid from Azoarcus sp. BH72

A detailed analysis of the already known or novel biosynthesis gene clusters involved in the biosynthesis of polyene containing pigments like arcuflavin, flexirubin and xanthomonadin revealed the presence of similar gene clusters in a wide range of bacterial taxa, suggesting that polyene and polyene-dialkylresorcinol pigments are more widespread than previously realized.



Conservation of mechanism in three chorismate-utilizing enzymes.

A unifying mechanism for AS, ADCS, and IS entailing nucleophile addition to C2 of chorismate in an S(N)2' ' process is proposed.

The crystal structure of chorismate lyase shows a new fold and a tightly retained product

The extensive product binding that is observed is consistent with biochemical measurements of slow product release and 10‐fold stronger binding of product than substrate and Implications for the biological function of the high product binding are considered.

The molecular conformation of chorismic acid in the crystalline state

The monofunctional chorismate mutase from Bacillus subtilis. Structure determination of chorismate mutase and its complexes with a transition state analog and prephenate, and implications for the mechanism of the enzymatic reaction.

Structures have been determined for chorismate mutase from Bacillus subtilis and of complexes of this enzyme with product and an endo-oxabicyclic transition state analog using multiple isomorphous

Cyanuric acid hydrolase: evolutionary innovation by structural concatenation

The first X‐ray structure for the cyanuric acid hydrolase, AtzD, is reported, which is a novel fold that likely evolved via the concatenation of monomers of the trimeric YjgF superfamily and the acquisition of a metal binding site.

The 1.30 A resolution structure of the Bacillus subtilis chorismate mutase catalytic homotrimer.

The crystal structure of the Bacillus subtilis chorismate mutase, an enzyme of the aromatic amino acids biosynthetic pathway, was determined to 1.30 A resolution. The structure of the homotrimer was

Crystal structure of a putative isochorismatase hydrolase from Oleispira antarctica

In silico docking results showed that despite small differences in active site composition, isochorismate binds to in the structure of OaIHL in a similar mode to its binding in phenazine biosynthesis protein PhzD (PDB code 1NF8).

Structural Basis for the Activity and Substrate Specificity of Fluoroacetyl-CoA Thioesterase FlK

Structural comparison of FlK complexed with various substrate analogues suggests that the interaction between the fluorine of the substrate and the side chain of Arg120 located opposite to the catalytic triad is essential for correct coordination of the substrates at the active site and therefore accounts for the substrate specificity.

This review focuses on recent developments in the structure--function relationships of chorismate-utilizing enzymes involved in siderophore biosynthesis to provide insight into the biocatalysis of pericyclic reactions.

The biosynthetic gene cluster for the macrolactone ring of the immunosuppressant FK506.

Two additional polyketide synthases (PKS) genes fkbB and fkbC are revealed which lie upstream of fkbA, a PKS gene recently shown to be responsible for the last four condensation steps of the FK506 biosynthesis.
