ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
3-acetyloctanal synthase.
Reaction catalysed
Pyruvate + (E)-oct-2-enal <=> (S)-3-acetyloctanal + CO(2)
Thiamine diphosphate.
  • The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Serratia marcescens, participates in the biosynthesis of the antibiotic prodigiosin.
  • The enzyme decarboxylates pyruvate, followed by attack of the resulting two-carbon fragment on (E)-oct-2-enal, resulting in a Stetter reaction.
  • In vitro the enzyme can act on a number of alpha,beta-unsaturated carbonyl compounds, including aldehydes and ketones, and can catalyze both 1-2 and 1-4 carboligations depending on the substrate.
