(S)-2-amino-6-oxohexanoate:NADP+ oxidoreductase (ATP-forming)
This enzyme, characterized from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, catalyses the reduction of L-2-aminoadipate to (S)-2-amino-6-oxohexanoate during L-lysine biosynthesis. An adenylation domain activates the substrate at the expense of ATP hydrolysis, and forms L-2-aminoadipate adenylate, which is attached to a peptidyl-carrier protein (PCP) domain. Binding of NADPH results in reductive cleavage of the acyl-S-enzyme intermediate, releasing (S)-2-amino-6-oxohexanoate. Different from EC, L-aminoadipate-semialdehyde dehydrogenase, which catalyses a similar transformation in the opposite direction without ATP hydrolysis.
