The importance of GLU361 position in the reaction catalyzed by cholesterol oxidase.


Cholesterol oxidase stereospecifically isomerizes cholest-5-en-3-one to cholest-4-en-3-one. When the base catalyst for isomerization, Glu361, is mutated to Asp, the rate of deprotonation of cholest-5-en-3-one is not affected, but protonation of the dienolic intermediate becomes rate-limiting. This may be a consequence of the large distance between the… (More)
