Abstract :

The crystal structures of hydroxynitrile lyase from Manihot esculenta (MeHNL) complexed with the native substrate acetone and substrate analogue chloroacetone have been determined and refined at 2.2 A resolution. The substrates are positioned in the active site by hydrogen-bond interactions of the carbonyl O atom with Thr11 OG, Ser80 OG and, to a lesser extent, Cys81 SG. These studies support a mechanism for cyanogenesis as well as for the stereospecific MeHNL-catalyzed formation of (S)-cyanohydrins, which closely resembles the base-catalyzed chemical reaction of HCN with carbonyl compounds.
