Native Baker's yeast (S. cerevisiae) Pyruvate Decarboxylase

Cat No.
NATE-0510
Description
Pyruvate decarboxylase (PDC) is a homotetrameric enzyme that catalyses the decarboxylation of pyruvic acid to acetaldehyde and carbon dioxide in the cytoplasm. Pyruvate decarboxylase depends on cofactors thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP) and magnesium. PDC contains a β-α-β structure, yielding parallel β-sheets.
