  • PubMed Abstract: 
  • Isopenicillin N synthase (IPNS) is a non-haem iron oxidase that catalyses the formation of bicyclic isopenicillin N from delta-(L-alpha-aminoadipoyl)-L-cysteinyl-D-valine (ACV). In this study we report a novel activity for the iron of the IPNS active site, which behaves as a Lewis acid to catalyse the elimination of HF from the fluorinated substrate analogue, delta-(L-alpha-aminoadipoyl)-L-cysteinyl-D-beta-fluorovaline (ACbetaFV) ...

    Isopenicillin N synthase (IPNS) is a non-haem iron oxidase that catalyses the formation of bicyclic isopenicillin N from delta-(L-alpha-aminoadipoyl)-L-cysteinyl-D-valine (ACV). In this study we report a novel activity for the iron of the IPNS active site, which behaves as a Lewis acid to catalyse the elimination of HF from the fluorinated substrate analogue, delta-(L-alpha-aminoadipoyl)-L-cysteinyl-D-beta-fluorovaline (ACbetaFV). X-Ray crystallographic studies of IPNS crystals grown anaerobically with ACbetaFV reveal that the valinyl beta-fluorine is missing from the active site region, and suggest the presence of the unsaturated tripeptide delta-(L-alpha-aminoadipoyl)-L-cysteinyl-D-isodehydrovaline in place of substrate ACbetaFV. (19)F NMR studies confirm the release of fluoride from ACbetaFV in the presence of the active IPNS enzyme. These results suggest a new mode of reactivity for the IPNS iron centre, a mechanism of action that has not previously been reported for any of the iron oxidase enzymes.
