  • PubMed Abstract: 

    The structural mechanism of the catalytic functioning of shikimate kinase from Mycobacterium tuberculosis was investigated on the basis of a series of high-resolution crystal structures corresponding to individual steps in the enzymatic reaction. The catalytic turnover of shikimate and ATP into the products shikimate-3-phosphate and ADP, followed by release of ADP, was studied in the crystalline environment. Based on a comparison of the structural states before initiation of the reaction and immediately after the catalytic step, we derived a structural model of the transition state that suggests that phosphoryl transfer proceeds with inversion by an in-line associative mechanism. The random sequential binding of shikimate and nucleotides is associated with domain movements. We identified a synergic mechanism by which binding of the first substrate may enhance the affinity for the second substrate.
