ENZYME entry: EC 4.1.2.52

Accepted Name
4-hydroxy-2-oxoheptanedioate aldolase.
Alternative Name(s)
2,4-dihydroxyhept-2-enedioate aldolase.
4-hydroxy-2-ketoheptanedioate aldolase.
HHED aldolase.
HKHD aldolase.
Reaction catalysed
4-hydroxy-2-oxoheptanedioate <=> pyruvate + succinate semialdehyde
Cofactor(s)
Cobalt cation or Mn(2+).
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme is also able to catalyze the aldol cleavage of 4-hydroxy- 2-oxopentanoate and 4-hydroxy-2-oxohexanoate, and can use 2-oxobutanoate as carbonyl donor, with lower efficiency.
  • In the reverse direction, is able to condense a range of aldehyde acceptors with pyruvate.
  • The enzyme from the bacterium Escherichia coli produces a racemic mixture of (4R)- and (4S)-hydroxy-2-oxoheptanedioate.
  • Formerly EC 4.1.2.n4.
