Accepted name: iron(III)-enterobactin esterase
Reaction: iron(III)-enterobactin + 3 H2O = iron(III)-N-(2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl)-L-serine complex + 2 N-(2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl)-L-serine (overall reaction)
(1a) iron(III)-enterobactin + H2O = iron(III)-N-(2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl)-L-serine trimer complex
(1b) iron(III)-N-(2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl)-L-serine trimer complex + H2O = iron(III)-N-(2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl)-L-serine dimer complex + N-(2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl)-L-serine
(1c) iron(III)-N-(2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl)-L-serine dimer complex + H2O = iron(III)-N-(2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl)-L-serine complex + N-(2,3-dihydroxybenzoyl)-L-serine
Other name(s): fes (gene name); pfeE (gene name); enterochelin hydrolase; enterochelin esterase; ferric enterobactin esterase
Systematic name: iron(III)-enterobactin hydrolase
Comments: The enzyme, isolated from the bacterium Escherichia coli, allows the bacterium to grow in limited iron conditions. It can also act on enterobactin (with no complexed iron) and the aluminium(III) analogue of iron(III)-enterobactin. The trimer formed is further hydrolysed to form the dimer and the monomer.
