  Domain Name: KDGDH
5-dehydro-4-deoxyglucarate dehydratase, also called 5-keto-4-deoxy-glucarate dehydratase (KDGDH). 5-dehydro-4-deoxyglucarate dehydratase, also called 5-keto-4-deoxy-glucarate dehydratase (KDGDH), which is member of dihydrodipicolinate synthase (DHDPS) family that comprises several pyruvate-dependent class I aldolases. The enzyme is involved in glucarate metabolism, and its mechanism presumbly involves a Schiff-base intermediate similar to members of DHDPS family. While in the case of Pseudomonas sp. 5-dehydro-4-deoxy-D-glucarate is degraded by KDGDH to 2,5-dioxopentanoate, in certain species of Enterobacteriaceae it is degraded instead to pyruvate and glycerate.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
