Abstract :

The study demonstrates , that LigU catalyzes the isomerization of the double bond between C4 and C5 in (4E)-OMA to (3Z)-2-keto-4-carboxy-3-hexenedioate (KCH), where the double bond has migrated to be between C3 and C4 via a 1,3-allylic isomerizatioN and shows further that the product of the LigU-catalyzed reaction is the preferred substrate for the LigJ hydratase.
