IUBMB Comments
Requires Mn2+ for maximal activity . The enzyme from the bacterium Pseudomonas putida is also stimulated by NADH . In some bacterial species the enzyme forms a bifunctional complex with EC 1.2.1.10, acetaldehyde dehydrogenase (acetylating). The enzymes from the bacteria Burkholderia xenovorans and Thermus thermophilus also perform the reaction of EC 4.1.3.43, 4-hydroxy-2-oxohexanoate aldolase [4,5].
