    Protein Summary

    The speH gene of Aquifex aelicus encodes an S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase (AdoMetDC) (EC AdoMetDC is a pyruvoyl-dependent amino acid decarboxylase involved in methionine metabolism and the polyamine biosynthetic pathway. The structure is identical (backbone RMSD 1.1 Å over 112 residues) to previously determined prokaryotic AdoMetDCs (PDB ids 1tlu, 1vr7) which reveal the relationship between the prokaryotic and eukaryotic versions of the enzyme (1). The prokaryotic AdoMetDC presents a dimeric fold very similar to the eukaryotic AdoMetDC protomer, suggesting an evolutionary link (1). There is no detectable sequence similarity between the AdoMetDC found in eukaryotes and prokaryotes, except at the site of pyruvoyl group formation, where the key active site residues involved in substrate binding, catalysis and proenzyme processing are structurally conserved (1).
