Succinate--CoA ligase [ADP-forming] subunit alpha

Gene

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

Functioni

Succinyl-CoA synthetase functions in the citric acid cycle (TCA), coupling the hydrolysis of succinyl-CoA to the synthesis of either ATP or GTP and thus represents the only step of substrate-level phosphorylation in the TCA. The alpha subunit of the enzyme binds the substrates coenzyme A and phosphate, while succinate binding and nucleotide specificity is provided by the beta subunit. Can use either ATP or GTP, but prefers ATP. It can also function in the other direction for anabolic purposes, and this may be particularly important for providing succinyl-CoA during anaerobic growth when the oxidative route from 2-oxoglutarate is severely repressed.UniRule annotation1 Publication

Miscellaneous

Succinyl-CoA synthetase (SCS) of E.coli catalyzes its reaction via three steps that involve phosphoryl enzyme and enzyme-bound succinyl phosphate as intermediates.

Catalytic activityi

ATP + succinate + CoA = ADP + phosphate + succinyl-CoA.UniRule annotation1 Publication

Enzyme regulationi

Exhibits two interesting properties: "substrate synergism", in which the enzyme is most active for the catalysis of its partial reactions only when all the substrate-binding sites are occupied, and "catalytic cooperativity" between alternating active sites in the tetramer, whereby the interaction of substrates (particularly ATP) at one site is needed to promote catalysis at the other.

Kineticsi

kcat is 2684 min(-1) with ATP as substrate and 1471 min(-1) with GTP as substrate.1 Publication

    Pathwayi: tricarboxylic acid cycle

    This protein is involved in step 1 of the subpathway that synthesizes succinate from succinyl-CoA (ligase route).UniRule annotation1 Publication
    Proteins known to be involved in this subpathway in this organism are:
    1. Succinate--CoA ligase [ADP-forming] subunit alpha (sucD), Succinate--CoA ligase [ADP-forming] subunit beta (sucC)
    This subpathway is part of the pathway tricarboxylic acid cycle, which is itself part of Carbohydrate metabolism.
    View all proteins of this organism that are known to be involved in the subpathway that synthesizes succinate from succinyl-CoA (ligase route), the pathway tricarboxylic acid cycle and in Carbohydrate metabolism.
