Literature Report

IntroductionSeveral aerobic crenarcheaons, including Pyrobaculum aerophilum, contain an isomerase that converts both glucose-6-phosphate and mannose-6-phosphate (G6P and M6P, which are C2 epimers) into fructose-6-phosphate. Most organisms contain only highly specific phosphoglucose and phosphomannose isomerases (PGIs and PMIs), which only accept either glucose or mannose as a substrate.
These dual specificity isomerases share very low sequence identity with 'conventional' PGIs or PMIs, but structure is conserved, especially at the active site, supporting a common mechanism.
Mechansim1) Lys 248 is deprotonated in the active site and deprotonates the C1 hydroxyl group. This leads to concomitant ring opening and protonation of the ring oxygen by His 219.
2) Rotation takes place around the C3-C4 bond, and also C2-C3 for the M6P mechanism (this is forbidden in conventional PGIs by a glutamate residue).
3) Glu 203 abstracts the C2 proton, leading to cis-enediolate formation. In the PGI mechanism, this cis-enediolate is stabilised by Arg 135.
4) The C1 enolate oxygen deprotonates the C2 enol. Glu 203 protonates C1, reducing the C1=C2 bond while the C2 hydroxyl is oxidised to a carbonyl.
5) Rotation about the C3-C4 bond occurs.
6) His 219 deprotonates the C5 hydroxyl (formerly the ring oxygen). This is concomitant with the attack of the C5 hydroxyl oxygen on the new C2 carbonyl, which is protonated by Lys 248 (ring closure).
7) The product is fructose-6-phosphate.
