Hydrophobic Shielding Drives Catalysis of Hydride Transfer in a Family of F420H2-Dependent Enzymes
A family of flavin/deazaflavin-dependent oxidoreductases (FDORs) from mycobacteria has been recently characterized and found to play a variety of catalytic roles, including the activation of prodrugs such as the candidate anti-tuberculosis drug pretomanid (PA-824). However, our understanding of the catalytic mechanism used by these enzymes is relatively limited. To address this, we have used a combination of quantum mechanics and molecular dynamics calculations to study the catalytic mechanism...[Show more]
