Diaminopimelate dehydrogenase The 3 substrates of this enzyme are meso-2,6-diaminoheptanedioate, HO, and NADP, whereas its 4 products are L-2-amino-6-oxoheptanedioate, NH, NADPH, and H.
Diaminopimelate decarboxylase In enzymology, a diaminopimelate decarboxylase () is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction
Diaminopimelate epimerase Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, LL-2,6-diaminoheptanedioate, and one product, meso-diaminoheptanedioate.
Diaminopimelate epimerase Bacteria, plants and fungi metabolise aspartic acid to produce four amino acids - lysine, threonine, methionine and isoleucine - in a series of reactions known as the aspartate pathway. Additionally, several important metabolic intermediates are produced by these reactions, such as diaminopimelic acid, an essential component of bacterial cell wall biosynthesis, and dipicolinic acid, which is involved in sporulation (spore production) in Gram-positive bacteria. Members of the animal kingdom do not possess this pathway and must therefore acquire these essential amino acids through their diet. Research into improving the metabolic flux through this pathway has the potential to increase the yield of the essential amino acids in important crops, thus improving their nutritional value. Additionally, since the enzymes are not present in animals, inhibitors of them are promising targets for the development of novel antibiotics and herbicides.
Diaminopimelate epimerase Diaminopimelate epimerase (), which catalyses the isomerisation of L,L-dimaminopimelate to meso-DAP in the biosynthetic pathway leading from aspartate to lysine, is a member of the broader family of PLP-independent amino acid racemases. This enzyme is a monomeric protein of about 30 kDa consisting of two domains which are similar in structure though they share little Sequence alignment. Each domain consists of mixed beta-sheets which fold into a barrel around the central helix. The active site cleft is formed from both domains and contains two conserved cysteines thought to function as the acid and base in the Catalysis. Other PLP-independent racemases such as glutamate racemase have been shown to share a similar structure and mechanism of catalysis.
Diaminopimelate dehydrogenase This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-NH2 group of donors with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is meso-2,6-diaminoheptanedioate:NADP+ oxidoreductase (deaminating). Other names in common use include meso-alpha,epsilon-diaminopimelate dehydrogenase, and meso-diaminopimelate dehydrogenase. This enzyme participates in lysine biosynthesis.
