General annotation (Comments)

Function

Catalyzes the condensation of (S)-aspartate-beta-semialdehyde [(S)-ASA] and pyruvate to 4-hydroxy-tetrahydrodipicolinate (HTPA) By similarity. HAMAP-Rule MF_00418

Catalytic activity

Pyruvate + L-aspartate-4-semialdehyde = (4S)-4-hydroxy-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-(2S)-dipicolinate + H2O. HAMAP-Rule MF_00418

Pathway

Amino-acid biosynthesis; L-lysine biosynthesis via DAP pathway; (S)-tetrahydrodipicolinate from L-aspartate: step 3/4. HAMAP-Rule MF_00418

Subunit structure

Homodimer By similarity. HAMAP-Rule MF_00418

Subcellular location

Cytoplasm By similarity HAMAP-Rule MF_00418.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the DapA family.

Caution

Was originally thought to be a dihydrodipicolinate synthase (DHDPS), catalyzing the condensation of (S)-aspartate-beta-semialdehyde [(S)-ASA] and pyruvate to dihydrodipicolinate (DHDP). However, it was shown in E.coli that the product of the enzymatic reaction is not dihydrodipicolinate but in fact (4S)-4-hydroxy-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-(2S)-dipicolinic acid (HTPA), and that the consecutive dehydration reaction leading to DHDP is not spontaneous but catalyzed by DapB.
