    EcL-DER, the aspartate/glutamate racemase from the pathogen Escherichia coli O157, exhibits racemase activity for l-aspartate and l-glutamate. This study reports the crystal structures of apo-EcL-DER, the EcL-DER-l-aspartate and the EcL-DER-d-aspartate complexes. The EcL-DER structure contains two domains, forming pseudo-mirror symmetry in the active site. A unique catalytic pair consisting of Thr(83) and Cys(197) exists in the active site. The characteristic conformations of l-Asp and d-Asp in the active site provide a straight structural evidence for the racemization mechanism of EcL-DER. In addition, the diversity of catalytic pairs implies that PLP-independent amino acid racemases adopt various catalytic mechanisms and are classified into different subgroups.
