Carboxymuconolactone decarboxylase-like (IPR003779)

Short name: CMD-like

Domain relationships


The catechol and protocatechuate branches of the 3-oxoadipate pathway, which are important for the bacterial degradation of aromatic compounds, converge at the common intermediate 3-oxoadipate enol-lactone. Carboxymuconolactone decarboxylase (CMD) is involved in protocatechuate catabolism. In some bacteria a gene fusion event leads to expression of CMD with a hydrolase involved in the same pathway [PMID: 9495744].
