Native Pseudomonas sp. Protocatechuate 3,4-Dioxygenase

Cat No.
NATE-0509
Description
In enzymology, a protocatechuate 3,4-dioxygenase (EC 1.13.11.3) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction:3,4-dihydroxybenzoate + O2↔ 3-carboxy-cis,cis-muconate. Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are 3,4-dihydroxybenzoate (protocatechuic acid) and O2, whereas its product is 3-carboxy-cis,cis-muconate. This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on single donors with O2 as oxidant and incorporation of two atoms of oxygen into the substrate (oxygenases). This enzyme participates in benzoate degradation via hydroxylation and 2,4-dichlorobenzoate degradation. It employs one cofactor, iron.

Applications
Prot ocatechuate 3,4-Dioxygenase (PCD), from Pseudomonas sp., is used for the enzymatic determination of choline esterase when coupled with phydroxybenzoate hydroxylase. It is used to improve organic fluorophore-stability in single-molecule experiments and is used to study the metabolism of prot ocatechuate in Rhizobiaceae. The enzyme has been used to create an oxygen scavenging system along with prot ocatechuate (PCA) and Trolox. The enzyme employs a nonheme iron center that catalyzes the conversion of PCA and molecular oxygen into β-carboxy-cis,cis-muconic acid, while the antioxidant Trolox suppresses slow blinking and photobleaching of cyanine dyes. It has been used in the preparation of imaging buffer along with DMB-BSA (dynein motility buffer-BSA), ATP and prot ocatechuate in single molecule motility assay.
