Structural alteration of cofactor specificity in Corynebacterium 2,5-diketo-D-gluconic acid reductase
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2004-02)
Carynebacterium 2,5-Diketo-D-gluconic acid reductase (2,5-DKGR) catalyzes the reduction of 2,5-diketo-D-gluconic acid (2,5-DKG) to 2-Keto-L-gulonic acid (2-KLG). 2-KLG is an immediate precursor to L-ascorbic acid (vitamin ...
