Accepted name: 4-hydroxy-2-oxoheptanedioate aldolase
Reaction: 4-hydroxy-2-oxoheptanedioate = pyruvate + succinate semialdehyde
Other name(s): 2,4-dihydroxyhept-2-enedioate aldolase; HHED aldolase; 4-hydroxy-2-ketoheptanedioate aldolase; HKHD aldolase; HpcH; HpaI; 4-hydroxy-2-oxoheptanedioate succinate semialdehyde lyase (pyruvate-forming)
Systematic name: 4-hydroxy-2-oxoheptanedioate succinate-semialdehyde-lyase (pyruvate-forming)
Comments: Requires Co2+ or Mn2+ for activity. The enzyme is also able to catalyse the aldol cleavage of 4-hydroxy-2-oxopentanoate and 4-hydroxy-2-oxohexanoate, and can use 2-oxobutanoate as carbonyl donor, with lower efficiency. In the reverse direction, is able to condense a range of aldehyde acceptors with pyruvate. The enzyme from the bacterium Escherichia coli produces a racemic mixture of (4R)- and (4S)-hydroxy-2-oxoheptanedioate [4].
