ENZYME entry: EC 2.3.1.230

Accepted Name
2-heptyl-4(1H)-quinolone synthase.
Reaction catalysed
Octanoyl-CoA + 2-aminobenzoylacetate <=> 2-heptyl-4(1H)-quinolone + CoA + CO(2) + H(2)O
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa, is a heterodimeric complex.
  • The PqsC subunit acquires an octanoyl group from octanoyl-CoA and attaches it to an internal cysteine residue.
  • Together with the PqsB subunit, the proteins catalyze the coupling of the octanoyl group with (2-aminobenzoyl)acetate, leading to decarboxylation and dehydration events that result in closure of the quinoline ring.
