Isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) [1,2] is an important enzyme of carbohydrate metabolism which catalyzes the oxidative decarboxylation of isocitrate into α-ketoglutarate. IDH is either dependent on NAD+ (EC 188.8.131.52) or on NADP+ (EC 184.108.40.206). In eukaryotes there are at least three isozymes of IDH: two are located in the mitochondrial matrix (one NAD+-dependent, the other NADP+-dependent), while the third one (also NADP+-dependent) is cytoplasmic. In Escherichia coli the activity of a NADP+-dependent form of the enzyme is controlled by the phosphorylation of a serine residue; the phosphorylated form of IDH is completely inactivated.
3-isopropylmalate dehydrogenase (EC 220.127.116.11) (IMDH) [3,4] catalyzes the third step in the biosynthesis of leucine in bacteria and fungi, the oxidative decarboxylation of 3-isopropylmalate into 2-oxo-4-methylvalerate.
These enzymes are evolutionary related [1,3,4,5]. The best conserved region of these enzymes is a glycine-rich stretch of residues located in the C-terminal section. We have used this region as a signature pattern.Last update:
