Phosphatidylserine decarboxylase proenzyme

Gene

psd

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

Functioni

Catalyzes the formation of phosphatidylethanolamine (PtdEtn) from phosphatidylserine (PtdSer). Only decarboxylates the lipid-linked form of the serine moiety, and not serine alone or derivatives like phosphoserine or glycerophosphoserine.UniRule annotation1 Publication

Catalytic activityi

Phosphatidyl-L-serine = phosphatidylethanolamine + CO2.UniRule annotation1 Publication

Cofactori

pyruvateUniRule annotation1 PublicationNote: Binds 1 pyruvoyl group covalently per subunit.UniRule annotation1 Publication

Enzyme regulationi

Inhibited by ionic detergents such as Barlox-12, an amine oxide, and sodium dodecyl sulfate.1 Publication

pH dependencei

Optimum pH is 6.5-7.5.1 Publication

Post-translational modificationi

Is synthesized initially as an inactive proenzyme. Formation of the active enzyme involves a self-maturation process in which the active site pyruvoyl group is generated from an internal serine residue via an autocatalytic post-translational modification. Two non-identical subunits are generated from the proenzyme in this reaction, and the pyruvate is formed at the N-terminus of the alpha chain, which is derived from the carboxyl end of the proenzyme. The autoendoproteolytic cleavage occurs by a canonical serine protease mechanism, in which the side chain hydroxyl group of the serine supplies its oxygen atom to form the C-terminus of the beta chain, while the remainder of the serine residue undergoes an oxidative deamination to produce ammonia and the pyruvoyl prosthetic group on the alpha chain (PubMed:3042771, PubMed:2406271). During this reaction, the Ser that is part of the protease active site of the proenzyme becomes the pyruvoyl prosthetic group, which constitutes an essential element of the active site of the mature decarboxylase (By similarity).UniRule annotationBy similarity2 Publications
