Multiple turnovers of the nicotino-enzyme PdxB require α-keto acids as cosubstrates.


PdxB catalyzes the second step in the biosynthesis of pyridoxal phosphate by oxidizing 4-phospho-d-erythronate (4PE) to 2-oxo-3-hydroxy-4-phosphobutanoate (OHPB) with concomitant reduction of NAD(+) to NADH. PdxB is a nicotino-enzyme wherein the NAD(H) cofactor remains tightly bound to PdxB. It has been a mystery how PdxB performs multiple turnovers since… (More)
