  • An l‐galactonate dehydratase and the corresponding gene were identified from the mould Hypocrea jecorina (Trichoderma reesei). This novel enzyme converts l‐galactonate to l‐threo‐3‐deoxy‐hexulosonate (2‐keto‐3‐deoxy‐l‐galactonate). The enzyme is part of the fungal pathway for d‐galacturonic acid catabolism, a pathway which is only partly known. It is the second enzyme of this pathway after the d‐galacturonic acid reductase. l‐galactonate dehydratase activity is present in H. jecorina cells… CONTINUE READING
