Accepted name: (R)-3-[(carboxymethyl)amino]fatty acid dioxygenase/decarboxylase
Reaction: a (3R)-3-[(carboxylmethyl)amino]fatty acid + 2 2-oxoglutarate + 2 O2 = a (3R)-3-isocyanyl-fatty acid + 2 succinate + 3 CO2 + 2 H2O (overall reaction)
(1a) a (3R)-3-[(carboxylmethyl)amino]fatty acid + 2-oxoglutarate + O2 = a (3R)-3-{[carboxy(hydroxy)methyl]amino}fatty acid + succinate + CO2
(1b) a (3R)-3-{[carboxy(hydroxy)methyl]amino}fatty acid + 2-oxoglutarate + O2 = a (3R)-3-isocyanyl-fatty acid + succinate + 2 CO2 + 2 H2O
Other name(s): scoE (gene name); mmaE (gene name); Rv0097 (locus name)
Systematic name: (3R)-3-[(carboxylmethyl)amino]fatty acid,2-oxoglutarate:oxygen oxidoreductase (isonitrile-forming)
Comments: Requires Fe(II). The enzyme, found in actinobacterial species, participates in the biosynthesis of isonitrile-containing lipopeptides. The reaction comprises two catalytic cycles, each consuming an oxygen molecule and a 2-oxoglutarate molecule. In the first cycle the substrate is hydroxylated, while in the second cycle the enzyme catalyses a decarboxylation/oxidation reaction that produces an isonitrile group.
