Abstract

The siderophore petrobactin harbors unique 3,4-dihydroxybenzoyl iron-liganding groups. These moieties are known to be synthesized from shikimate pathway precursors, but no reports of the biosynthetic enzymes responsible for this conversion have been published. The gene encoding AsbF from Bacillus thuringiensis 97-27 was overexpressed in an Escherichia coli host. AsbF rapidly and efficiently transforms (-)-3-dehydroshikimate (DHS) into 3,4-dihydroxybenzoate (kcatDHS = 217 ± 10 min -1; KmDHS = 125 ± 14 μM) at 37°C and has an absolute requirement for divalent metal. Finally, the pH versus kcatDHS profile revealed two ionizable groups (pK a1 = 7.9 ± 0.1, and pKa2 = 9.3 ± 0.1).
