Threonine 188 is critical for interaction with NAD+ in human NAD+-dependent 15-hydroxyprostaglandin dehydrogenase.


NAD+-dependent 15-hydroxyprostaglandin dehydrogenase (15-PGDH) is the key enzyme in the inactivation pathway of prostaglandins. It is a member of the short-chain dehydrogenase family of enzymes. A relatively conserved threonine residue corresponding to threonine 188 of 15-PGDH is proposed to be involved in the interaction with the carboxamide group of NAD… (More)
