Abstract.Thiamine is an essential cofactor that is required for processes of general metabolism amongst all organisms, and it is likely to have played a role in the earliest stages of the evolution of life. Here, we review from a structural perspective the enzymatic mechanisms that involve this cofactor. We explore asymmetry within homodimeric thiamine diphosphate (ThDP)-dependent enzyme structures and discuss how this may be correlated with the kinetic properties of half-of-the-sites… Expand

Alternating sites reactivity is a common feature of thiamin diphosphate-dependent enzymes as evidenced by isothermal titration calorimetry studies of substrate binding.
TLDR
The results unambiguously show that only one active center of the functional dimers accomplishes covalent binding of the substrate analogue methyl acetylphosphonate to three different ThDP-dependent enzymes acting on substrate pyruvate, supporting the proposed alternating sites reactivity as a common feature of all ThDP enzymes and resolving the recent controversy in the field.

Systematic analysis of the sequence-structure-function relationships of thiamine diphosphate-dependent enzymes
Thiamine diphosphate (ThDP)-dependent enzymes form a vast and diverse protein family, both in the sequence space and in their functional potential. Of particular interest are the enantioselective C-CExpand
Catalysis in Enzymatic Decarboxylations: Comparison of Selected Cofactor-dependent and Cofactor-independent Examples.
TLDR
The enzyme OMPDC has posed a challenge to the enzymologist attempting to explain a 1017-fold rate acceleration in the absence of cofactors or even metal ions, so a comparison of the available evidence on the three types of decarboxylases underlines some common features and more differences. Expand
Structural Views along the Mycobacterium tuberculosis MenD Reaction Pathway Illuminate Key Aspects of Thiamin Diphosphate-Dependent Enzyme Mechanisms.
TLDR
A series of crystal structures of Mtb-MenD that map the binding of both substrates are determined, visualizing each step in the MenD catalytic cycle, including both intermediates, and reveal conformational features of the two intermediates that facilitate reaction but prevent premature product release. Expand
Allosteric Regulation of Vitamin K2 Biosynthesis in a Human Pathogen
TLDR
The last cytosolicmetabolite in the menaquinone biosynthesis pathway (1,4-dihydroxy-2-napthoic acid, DHNA) binds to domain II of Mtb-MenD and inhibits enzyme activity, unravelling a protein level regulatory mechanism for control ofMenaquinone levels within the cell. Expand
7.16 – Thiamin Enzymology
The reactions of thiamin diphosphate, the vitamin B1 coenzyme, on several enzymes are described in this chapter. This coenzyme is an electrophilic covalent catalyst, forming a series of intermediatesExpand
Computational studies on the catalytic mechanism of phosphoketolase
Abstract Phosphoketolase (PK) is a thiamine diphosphate (THDP) dependent enzyme which plays key roles in the metabolism of heterofermentative bacteria. By using density functional theory (DFT)Expand
Snapshots of Catalysis in the E1 Subunit of the Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Multienzyme Complex
TLDR
The structural and enzymatic data suggest that H128β performs a dual role: first, as electrostatic catalyst of the reaction of pyruvate with the thiamine cofactor; and second, as a proton donor in the second reaction of acetyl group with the lipoate. Expand
Progress in the experimental observation of thiamin diphosphate-bound intermediates on enzymes and mechanistic information derived from these observations.
TLDR
Much progress has been made in the intervening decade in the identification of the intermediates and their application to gain additional mechanistic insight and in some cases determination of the rate-limiting step in the complex series of steps is enabled. Expand
Using substrate analogues to probe the kinetic mechanism and active site of Escherichia coli MenD.
TLDR
It is shown that MenD follows a ping-pong kinetic mechanism and the synthesis of an isochorismate analogue that acts as a substrate for MenD is reported, giving experimental support to previous models and hypotheses and allowing observations unavailable using only the natural substrate. Expand

TLDR
The current view is that the two aromatic rings both contribute to catalysis, perhaps carrying out an intramolecular proton transfer to initiate the various reactions, an ability that makes this coenzyme virtually unique among coenzymes. Expand
The catalytic cycle of a thiamin diphosphate enzyme examined by cryocrystallography
TLDR
X-ray structures of key intermediates in the oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate, a central reaction in carbon metabolism catalyzed by the ThDP- and flavin-dependent enzyme pyruVate oxidase (POX)3 from Lactobacillus plantarum, provide profound insights into the chemical mechanisms and the stereochemical course of thiamin catalysis. Expand
Sixty years of thiamin diphosphate biochemistry.
TLDR
2H/1H-exchange experiments have shown that within the active center of ThDP enzymes (under native pH conditions!) the aminopyrimidine part generates the essential ylid structure by enhancing the dissociation rate (acidity) of the C2-H bond up to 4-6 orders of magnitude. Expand
How Thiamine Diphosphate Is Activated in Enzymes
TLDR
The protein component accelerated the deprotonation of the C2 atom by several orders of magnitude, beyond the rate of the overall enzyme reaction, and the earlier proposed concerted mechanism or stabilization of a C2 carbanion can be excluded. Expand
Multiple modes of active center communication in thiamin diphosphate-dependent enzymes.
TLDR
Evidence for active-center interactions will be presented for the following thiamin diphosphate-dependent enzymes: yeast pyruvate decarboxylase, benzoylformatedecarboxyase, and examples from the 2-oxoacid dehydrogenase multienzyme complex class. Expand
Malic dehydrogenase. VII. The catalytic mechanism and possible role of identical protein subunits.
TLDR
Initial rate kinetic studies of mitochondrial malate dehydrogenase show that the zero order maximum initial velocity and the oxidized coenzyme dissociation constant decrease concomitantly when ketomalonate is substituted for oxalacetate as the substrate, and a more complex "reciprocating compulsory order mechanism" is proposed.

TLDR
Evidence is presented that the ThDPs in the two active sites of the E1 (EC 1.2.4.1) component of the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex communicate over a distance of 20 angstroms by reversibly shuttling a proton through an acidic tunnel in the protein. Expand
