Aminodeoxychorismate synthase component 1

Gene

pabB

Organism
Escherichia coli (strain K12)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 5 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Part of a heterodimeric complex that catalyzes the two-step biosynthesis of 4-amino-4-deoxychorismate (ADC), a precursor of p-aminobenzoate (PABA) and tetrahydrofolate. In the first step, a glutamine amidotransferase (PabA) generates ammonia as a substrate that, along with chorismate, is used in the second step, catalyzed by aminodeoxychorismate synthase (PabB) to produce ADC. PabB, in the absence of PabA, can catalyze the formation of ADC in the presence of exogenous ammonia.3 Publications

Catalytic activityi

Chorismate + L-glutamine = 4-amino-4-deoxychorismate + L-glutamate.2 Publications

Cofactori

Mg2+1 Publication

Enzyme regulationi

Inhibited by 6-diazo-5-oxo-L-norleucine (DON). The inhibition is competitive with glutamine but uncompetitive with chorismate. Also inhibited by 2-fluorochorismate.2 Publications

    Pathwayi: tetrahydrofolate biosynthesis

    This protein is involved in step 1 of the subpathway that synthesizes 4-aminobenzoate from chorismate.
    Proteins known to be involved in the 2 steps of the subpathway in this organism are:
    1. Aminodeoxychorismate synthase component 2 (pabA), Aminodeoxychorismate synthase component 1 (pabB)
    2. Aminodeoxychorismate lyase (pabC)
    This subpathway is part of the pathway tetrahydrofolate biosynthesis, which is itself part of Cofactor biosynthesis.
    View all proteins of this organism that are known to be involved in the subpathway that synthesizes 4-aminobenzoate from chorismate, the pathway tetrahydrofolate biosynthesis and in Cofactor biosynthesis.

    In this enzymatic reaction the C4 hydroxy group of chorismate is replaced by addition of a nucleophile at the C2 position. The nucleophile is the epsilon-amino group of lysine 274 transiently binds to C2 of chorismate (PubMed:16605270). PabB contains a tryptophan (Trp) molecule deeply embedded in a binding pocket. Trp which cannot be dissociated without denaturation of PabB, may play a structural role in the enzyme since it has no effect on the enzymic synthesis of aminodeoxychorismate (PubMed:11841211).2 Publications
