  • amino
  • It takes part in the gluconeogenesis, urea cycle, glyoxylate cycle, amino acid synthesis, fatty acid synthesis and citric acid cycle. (wikipedia.org)
  • Malonyl-CoA decarboxylase is firstly processed as a pro-protein or proenzyme, in which the transit peptide, whose role is to transport the enzyme to a specific organelle (in this case the mitochondria), comprises the first 39 amino acids (beginning with a methionine and ending with an alanine). (wikipedia.org)
  • The polypeptide chain in the mature protein is comprised between amino acid 40 and 493. (wikipedia.org)
  • In order to turn into an active enzyme, MCD undergoes 8 post-translational modifications (PTM) in different amino acids. (wikipedia.org)
  • The last one, which consists of an acetylation in the amino acid lysine in position 472, activates malonyl-CoA decarboxylase activity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Similarly, a deacetylation in this specific amino acid by SIRT4 (a mitochondrial protein) represses the enzyme activity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Another important PTM is the formation of an interchain disulfide bond in the amino acid cysteine in position 206, which may take place in peroxisomes, as the cytosolic and mitochondrial environments are too reducing for this process. (wikipedia.org)
