ENZYME entry: EC 4.1.2.51

Accepted Name
2-dehydro-3-deoxy-D-gluconate aldolase.
Alternative Name(s)
KDG-specific aldolase.
Reaction catalysed
2-dehydro-3-deoxy-D-gluconate <=> pyruvate + D-glyceraldehyde
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme from the archaeon Picrophilus torridus is involved in D-glucose and D-galactose catabolism via the nonphosphorylative variant of the Entner-Doudoroff pathway.
  • In the direction of aldol synthesis the enzyme catalyzes the formation of 2-dehydro-3-deoxy-D-gluconate and 2-dehydro-3-deoxy-D- galactonate at a similar ratio.
  • It shows no activity with 2-dehydro-3-deoxy-D-gluconate 6-phosphate.
  • Cf. EC 4.1.2.14.
