Comments [?]

case <FTTag:HACNmotif>
Function Hydro-lyase with broad substrate specificity for cis-unsaturated tricarboxylic acids. Catalyzes both the reversible dehydration of (R)-homocitrate ((R)-2-hydroxybutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylate) to produce cis-homoaconitate ((Z)-but-1-ene-1,2,4-tricarboxylate), and its hydration to homoisocitrate ((1R,2S)-1-hydroxybutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylate). Is also able to hydrate the analogous longer chain substrates cis-homo(2)-aconitate, cis-homo(3)-aconitate. All these reactions are part of the biosynthesis pathway of coenzyme B.
Catalytic activity (1R,2S)-1-hydroxybutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylate = (Z)-but-1-ene-1,2,4-tricarboxylate + H(2)O.
(R)-2-hydroxybutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylate = (Z)-but-1-ene-1,2,4-tricarboxylate + H(2)O.
(R)-2-hydroxybutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylate = (1R,2S)-1-hydroxybutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylate.
Pathway Organic acid metabolism; 2-oxosuberate biosynthesis.
Subunit Heterotetramer of 2 HacA and 2 HacB proteins.
Function Catalyzes the isomerization between 2-isopropylmalate and 3-isopropylmalate, via the formation of 2-isopropylmaleate.
Catalytic activity (2R,3S)-3-isopropylmalate = (2S)-2-isopropylmalate.
Pathway Amino-acid biosynthesis; L-leucine biosynthesis; L-leucine from 3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate: step 2/4.
Subunit Heterodimer of LeuC and LeuD.
end case
Similarity Belongs to the LeuD family. LeuD type 2 subfamily.

Comments The family member in THET2 is shown to function as a homoaconitase (for lysine biosynthesis), as well as one of the 2 copies found in METJA that catalyzes both the dehydration of (R)-homocitrate and the hydration of cis-homoaconitate for coenzyme B biosynthesis. The other copy in METJA functions both in leucine and isoleucine biosynthesis, since it catalyzes the isomerization between 2-isopropylmalate and 3-isopropylmalate and between 2-methylmalate and 3-methylmalate. In Archaea, a motif that indicates the protein specificity has been determined (see PubMed=20170198): the presence of the YLRT motif likely indicates HACN activity, while proteins with the YLV(Y/I/M) sequence are IPMIs enzymes.
