  Domain Name: KDG_aldolase
KDG (2-keto-3-deoxygluconate) aldolases found in archaea. KDG (2-keto-3-deoxygluconate) aldolases found in archaea. This subfamily of enzymes is adapted for high thermostability and shows specificity for non-phosphorylated substrates. The enzyme catalyses the reversible aldol cleavage of 2-keto-3-dexoygluconate to pyruvate and glyceraldehyde, the third step of a modified non-phosphorylated Entner-Doudoroff pathway of glucose oxidation. KDG aldolase shows no significant sequence similarity to microbial 2-keto-3-deoxyphosphogluconate (KDPG) aldolases, and the enzyme shows no activity with glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate as substrate. The enzyme is a tetramer and a member of the DHDPS family of Schiff-base-dependent class I aldolases.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
