Only one example is known of a wildtype bacterium that uses a NADP+-dependent ME to fix CO2 (Matula, McDonald and Martin 1969). K+-dependent PKs are stimulated by bi-phosphorylated sugars, such as fructose-1,6-bisphosphate (Jurica et al. M. H. B. Kai Szyperski Liao L. Generally, such ppc mutant phenotypes are probably due to physiological suppressor mutations in the glyoxylate shunt [158], and glyoxylate shunt flux was indeed shown in some suppressed ppc mutants (Perrenoud and Sauer, unpublished). T.K. Whether the PK activity is controlled via this post-translational modification is not known (Bendt et al. Spahich   NA, Vitko   NP, Thurlow   LR  et al. Guffanti Since the Km of the lyase is rather high for isocitrate (0.6 mM), the flux is preferentially through the TCA cycle at low isocitrate concentrations (e.g. 1982). Nishi Okura The enzyme catalyzes the highly exergonic bicarbonate fixation on PEP to form oxaloacetate and inorganic phosphate, using Mg2+ or Mn2+ as a cofactor [1]. 1). Hunter Except for bacterial ATP-PEPCKs, which are monomeric, most other ATP-PEPCKs are multimeric, with two, four, or six subunits (Matte et al. (, Schwinde 1). Aspartate for microbial PCs and glutamate for vertebrate PCs can inhibit α4-type PCs via a mechanism distinct from that for acetyl-CoA, even though binding of aspartate is mutual exclusive with acetyl-CoA. M. Baez II. from pyruvate. Enzymes exist that can use either ATP, GTP or PPi as phosphate donor (EC 4.1.1.49, 4.1.1.32 and 4.1.1.38, respectively). or it is insufficient to counteract the strong overflow metabolism to acetate.

During growth on dicarboxylic acids, the NAD-dependent malic enzyme appears to have a primary, but non-essential function in gluconeogenesis, while the NADP-dependent isoenzyme is thought to supply the cell with NADPH from the decarboxylation of malate [4, 173]. M.P. (, Sedewitz R.C. U.

B. Reviewing the newer studies on the PEP–pyruvate–oxaloacetate node, it becomes evident that some of the enzymes, aside from their classically recognized functions in catabolism, anaplerosis and gluconeogenesis, play further roles in the metabolism of some bacteria. In eukaryotes, however, the majority of PPSs are annotated in a specific class of fungi (leotiomyceta), without any functional evidence available. B.J. J. Recent studies revealed, however, that the carbon flux control at the PEP–pyruvate–oxaloacetate node is often more complex than simple on/off regulation under a given condition. Blattner 2016). H. The two characterized archaeal MEs from Sulfolobus solfataricus and T. kodakarensis, however, are both dimeric (Bartolucci et al. H. J. Archaeal PEPCKs are mostly GTP-dependent, and bacterial and other eukaryotic PEPCKs can be both ATP- and GTP-dependent (Aich and Delbaere 2007). S. M. Furthermore, P. furiosus PPS contains one Ca-atom per subunit, and its activity is stimulated by K+ and NH4+ (Hutchins, Holden and Adams 2001). For detailed and extensive overviews on the structure and function of pyruvate carboxylases from different sources (however, with special emphasis on eukaryotic sources) the reader should refer to recent reviews [59–61]. 1985. 2017). Peiru One particular problem in E. coli is the stoichiometric coupling of PEP conversion to two metabolic processes. Eschevins M. (. A.M. B.D. In C4 plants, PPdK activity is tightly regulated via inactivation and activation by the PPdK regulatory protein (PDRP), respectively through ADP-dependent phosphorylation and Pi-dependent dephosphorylation of a threonine residue in the active site. Wu The authors explained the complementation by an increased supply with pyruvate in the malE overexpressing strain and speculated that the regulation of the malE expression in the wild type of C. glutamicum precludes a role of malic enzyme for pyruvate generation under gluconeogenic conditions. 2016), and eukaryotes. 2009). The only known post-translational modification of PC is its biotinylation, which is required for activity (Jitrapakdee and Wallace 1999). As in most other organisms able to grow on TCA cycle intermediates, the initial reaction of gluconeogenesis in C. glutamicum is accomplished by the C4-decarboxylating PEP carboxykinase (Fig. Mack And with the exception of the PTS, Eukaryotes—absent from the figure—also possess enzymes for all of the PPO-node reactions; albeit occurrence of PPS and MQO is very restricted. && \quad {\Delta _{\rm{r}}}{{\rm{G^{\prime}}}^{\rm{m}}} = - 4.1 \pm 6.2{\rm{ kJ}}/{\rm{mol}} S. These examples show that there is a complex interplay of the enzymes at the PEP–pyruvate–oxaloacetate node and it is obvious that sophisticated control is realized to ensure an optimal carbon and energy flow within central metabolism. R.S. K.H. In addition to its generally recognized gluconeogenic formation of PEP from oxaloacetate, it has recently been demonstrated to contribute to catabolism and anaplerosis in E. coli, when operating in combination with the glyoxylate shunt [11], and in B. subtilis and other bacteria, when operating in the reverse direction [83, 222], respectively. G. Lindley At least fructose-1,6P, glucose-6P or AMP exert no allosteric effects on the purified enzyme [67], but other typical effectors such as PEP and ATP (compare 3.2.) (, Jetten Furthermore, T. cruzi PPdK is irreversibly inactivated via proteolytic cleavage from 100 to 75 kDa, after which the protein associates with the glycosomal membrane (González-Marcano et al. This effectively channels electrons from NADH to quinone, mimicking the reaction of the non-proton pumping type II NADH dehydrogenase (NDH2), an enzyme believed to share a common ancestor with MQO (Mogi et al. mesenteroides ATCC 8293A [53].

Both enzymes are used for growth on dicarboxylic acids but are not essential [172], because PEP may also be synthesized via malate dehydrogenase (malate: quinone oxidoreductase) and PEP carboxykinase. 2016). E. Note the local bypass of pyruvate kinase via malic enzyme and PEP carboxylase. In some bacteria, two C3-carboxylating and up to three C4-decarboxylating enzymes are simultaneously active, even during growth on glucose as sole carbon and energy source (e.g. K. J. W. Pyruvate is first converted by pyruvate carboxylase to oxaloacetate (OAA) in the mitochondrion requiring hydrolysis of one molecule of ATP. b) NADH is converted to NADPH in this cycle. G.E. The deduced PEP carboxykinase consists of 610 amino acids (66.9 kDa) and shows almost no similarity to ATP-dependent but up to 64% identity with GTP-dependent PEP carboxykinases from eukaryotic organisms.

Search for other works by this author on: $$\begin{eqnarray*} Blasco Mora Lasko Milrad de Forchetti Bott Hayashi Nevertheless, comparatively little biochemical data are available on the C3-carboxylating and C4-decarboxylating enzymes and most of our physiological knowledge dates back to the seminal paper by Diesterhaft and Freese [67]. (, Krulwich 2010). Y. Nayyar Phosphoenolpyruvate synthase (PPS), or sometimes called pyruvate, water dikinase resembles pyruvate phosphate dikinase, both catalytically and structurally (Nguyen and Saier 1995). Such a mutant was able to grow on glucose but not on substrates requiring gluconeogenesis. The consequence is that non-phosphorylated compounds are more prone to membrane leakage (due to their increased hydrophobicity), but at higher temperature this constraint seemingly weighs less than loss in energy resulting from spontaneous dephosphorylation. In M. tuberculosis, Fe2+ inhibits the gluconeogenic direction of PEPCK while it activates the anaplerotic oxaloacetate synthesis (Machová et al. (, Patel Molenaar   D, van der Rest   ME, Drysch   A  et al. Okabe Baucher T. tenax PPS is strongly inhibited by 2-oxoglutarate, and AMP and ADP, competitively with pyruvate and ATP, respectively, in the PEP-forming direction (Tjaden et al. Kameda Epub ahead of print. In E. coli and S. meliloti, the respective pckA gene additionally is strongly induced in the stationary growth phase [5, 6, 96], whereas in R. palustris it is strongly induced in the exponential growth phase, irrespective of the carbon source and under both anaerobic light and aerobic dark conditions [97]. It has also been suggested that it might be required for the supply of pyruvate during growth on TCA-cycle intermediates (Benziman et al.

W.H. 156–169, Emmerling De Graaf The remaining three enzymes fall into two groups, the 43.5 kDa YtsJ and the larger, 62–64 kDa MalS and MaeA (formerly ywkA) (Fig. 2012), while simultaneously keeping a low intracellular concentration of the non-phosphorylated sugar, maintaining a high driving force. Group 2 MEs are often referred to as the ‘eukaryotic’ MEs, however, they also occur in prokaryotes. a described protein families) or annotated EC numbers. Bailey Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium: Cellular and Molecular Biology. (, Varela J. H. The results additionally indicated that the C4-decarboxylating backward flux at the PEP–pyruvate–oxaloacetate node is more or less exclusively based on PEP carboxykinase activity. Additionally, a novel OAD from Pseudomonas aeruginosa has been characterized that belongs to the PEP mutase/isocitrate lyase superfamily (Narayanan et al. 5). G. The most extreme example in this regard is PPS, which—thermodynamically—highly favours the gluconeogenic conversion of pyruvate to PEP, and yet has been shown to function as a glycolytic enzyme in several Archaea, despite the simultaneous presence of a PK in the genome, and of course the existence of PPdK, which is even more ambivalent with respect to its role in glycolysis and gluconeogenesis. V.F. Different strategies have been applied to obtain metabolically engineered strains of E. coli for efficient conversion of glucose to pyruvate. 1998). An example of such a different prioritization can be found in some extreme thermophiles, which do not phosphorylate certain glycolytic metabolites. J.T. J.C. As a consequence of its central metabolic position, the PEP–pyruvate–oxaloacetate node has been the focus point of several metabolic engineering attempts to improve biotechnological production processes. Another prominent example for new insights into the function of particular pathways by metabolic flux analysis are ATP-dissipating futile cycles – resulting from simultaneous activity of glycolytic and gluconeogenic reactions – that, based on biochemical “common sense” as well as qualitative genetic and allosteric regulation data, would be expected to be absent or operate only at low level. Typically, they are classified based on their cofactor usage (NADP+ versus NAD+) and the ability to decarboxylate oxaloacetate (OAA), in the following three classes: EC1.1.1.38 (NAD+-dependent; OAA decarboxylating), EC1.1.1.39 (NAD+-dependent) and EC 1.1.1.40 (NADP+-dependent; OAA decarboxylating).

[10, 248]. Pyruvate kinase (PK) catalyzes the transphosphorylation from phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to ADP, forming pyruvate and ATP, which is typically the final, and a rate determining step of the glycolysis. The ones that can be used are termed glucogenic (red), and can be converted to either pyruvate or a citric acid cycle intermediate.

Izui However, there is a need for purification and biochemical analysis of the C. glutamicum pyruvate dehydrogenase complex and subsequently, the question for the control of its reaction and thus of the carbon flux into the TCA cycle can be clarified. In T. tenax, PPS is downregulated during heterotrophic growth and upregulated during autotrophic growth, indicative of a gluconeogenic role (Tjaden et al. S. De Graaf The reverse PEP carboxykinase reaction could, in principle, bypass the lesion by catalyzing C3-carboxylation of PEP, as has been suggested for some bacterial species [83, 88, 92], but the physiological equilibrium position strongly favors C4-decarboxylation with a ΔG0′ of −12.4 kJ M−1 [220, 221].

Wüthrich Hartmann (, Bosma Fischer Werkman The human cytosolic PEPCK—considered a gluconeogenic or cataplerotic enzyme (Yang, Kalhan and Hanson 2009)—was recently shown to be converted into an anaplerotic enzyme upon p300-dependent acetylation at high-glucose conditions (Latorre-Muro et al. Anaerobic and extremophilic microorganisms most often show deviations from the ‘typical’ central metabolism found in most model organisms, as a consequence of the way in which the different constraints that dictate cellular metabolism are prioritized (differently) in ‘extreme’ environments.4 Research into the PPO-node enzymes of anaerobic- and extremophilic bacteria and archaea will therefore be featured extensively in this review, where we aim to give a concise view of what is currently known about the biochemical reactions that form the PPO-node, putting emphasis on the variations that exist. The results are a conservative estimation, as not all enzymes have (unique) InterPro accession numbers (i.e. (, Hua C.M. M. Woo Tjaden   B, Plagens   A, Dorr   C  et al. P. B. M. Similarly, the exclusive and NADP-dependent malic enzyme is located in the mitochondria [21]. The degree of activation by acetyl-CoA can vary significantly, depending on the origin (Adina-Zada et al. M. The only two variations known—both occurring in Archaea—are glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate:ferredoxin oxidoreductase (GAPOR) replacing glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), and the non-phosphorylating glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPN), which also replaces phosphoglycerate kinase (PGK), abolishing the accompanying ATP generation (Brasen et al.

In some C4 plants, PEPCK is used for the localized enrichment of CO2 in the bundle-sheath cells. Many type I MEs are described that have a molecular mass of around 80–90 kDa, due to a fused C-terminal domain homologous to phosphate acetyltransferase (PTA). Postma S. Since also metabolic network analysis did not identify direct carbon fluxes from oxaloacetate to pyruvate [10], the function and role of oxaloacetate decarboxylase for growth and amino acid production remains unclear.

Na+-pumping OAD, and PTS-systems) the EC numbers are the same for the different subunits, and can therefore yield an overestimation. E. Although PTSs are only known to facilitate active solute import and not the export, EI was found recently to facilitate a significant (gluconeogenic) reverse flux from pyruvate to PEP in E. coli—both in wild type and in a PPS knock-out mutant during gluconeogenic as well as glycolytic growth (Long et al.
