Substrate-induced conformational change and isomerase activity of dienelactone hydrolase and its site-specific mutants
Studies of the interactions of dienelactone hydrolase (DLH) and its mutants with both E and Z dienelactone substrates show that the enzyme exhibits two different conformational responses specific for hydrolysis of each of its substrate isomers. DLH facilitates hydrolysis of the Z dienelactone through an unusual charge-relay system that is initiated by interaction between the substrate carboxylate and an enzyme arginine residue that activates an otherwise non-nucleophilic cysteine. The E...[Show more]
