The degradation mechanisms of three N-chloro-α-amino acids, i.e., N-chloro-glycine, N-chloro-alanine, and N-chloro-valine, have been systematically investigated using quantum chemical computations. At this step, the chirality of the amino acid is established. The homocysteine is not directly converted to cysteine; rather, homocysteine condenses with a serine to form cystathionine, which is then split into cysteine, ammonia, and ketobutyrate. Both essential and nonessential amino acids (EAAs and NEAAs) support altered metabolism by serving as energy sources, biosynthetic molecules, and mediators of redox balance. When consulting reference material, the reader needs to be aware of what organism contains the metabolic pathways and enzymes being discussed. Rx: Thr+ FH4 + ↔ Glycine + N5,N10-FH4 + acetaldehyde + H2O. 18.5: Pathways of Amino Acid Degradation Last updated; Save as PDF Page ID 37268; The pathways for amino acid degradation. The reaction is a transamination in which the ε-amino group is transferred to the α-keto carbon of 2-oxoglutarate forming the metabolite, saccharopine. BCKDC is a member of two other enzymes, pyruvate dehydrogenase and alpha-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase, both of which act on short alpha-keto acids to produce key Kreb cycle metabolites. More propionyl CoA is converted to succinyl CoA by this pathway from amino acid degradation than from odd-chain fatty acid β-oxidation. As shown below, compartmentation among different organ pools is the only limiting factor for complete and rapid exchange of the N of these amino acids. Supporting this view is the observation that pterin oxidation can become uncoupled from amino acid oxidation, either when nonphysiological amino acids are used as substrates (11, 25) or in a variety of TyrH active-site mutants ". The overall reactions for this conversion are shown in the figure below. One involves the conversion of Thr to 2-amino-3-ketobutyrate by threonine-3-dehydrogenase. In humans, these pathways taken together normally account for … The pathway of tyrosine degradation involves conversion to fumarate and acetoacetate, allowing phenylalanine and tyrosine to be classified as both glucogenic and ketogenic. Lysine catabolism is unusual in the way that the ε-amino group is transferred to 2-oxoglutarate and into the general nitrogen pool. Some of the carbons are color coded red or green to indicate where they end up. Glucose is split in glycolysis to pyruvate, the immediate product of alanine. The LibreTexts libraries are Powered by MindTouch® and are supported by the Department of Education Open Textbook Pilot Project, the UC Davis Office of the Provost, the UC Davis Library, the California State University Affordable Learning Solutions Program, and Merlot. . Also metabolites from aa special function in epigentics and redox balance. "here are several, at least three, pathways for lysine catabolism but the primary pathway utilized within the liver is one that begins with the formation of an adduct between lysine and 2-oxoglutarate (α-ketoglutarate) called saccharopine. Urea cycle disposal of amino acid N. Urea synthesis incorporates one N from ammonia and another from aspartate. However, the primary pathway appears to be the glycine cleavage enzyme system that breaks glycine into CO2 and ammonia and transfers a methylene group to tetrahydrofolate (21). Amino acids whose degradation pathways go toward formation of pyruvate, oxaloacetate, or a-ketoglutarate may be used for glucose synthesis. User data Module. It is synthesized predominately in the liver. Most amino acids are metabolized by transamination in the liver to yield the corresponding oxoacid, the amino group being transferred to 2–oxoglutarate to form glutamate. As mentioned above, Thr can be converted to 2-oxobutanoate by threonine deaminase (TDA). Glutamate is the primary source for the aspartate N; glutamate is also an important source of the ammonia in the cycle. Yellow boxes signify enzymes. The second N enters via aspartate to form arginosuccinate, which is then cleaved into arginine and fumarate. To circumvent the effects of oxidative stress, amino acids can regulate redox balance through their production of glutathione. The TCA cycle (also known as the Krebs cycle or the citric acid cycle) oxidizes carbon for energy, producing CO 2 and water. c Elevated kynurenine (Kyn) levels originating from tryptophan via the enzymes tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (TDO) and indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) have been shown in several cancers, including Hodgkin lymphoma, lung cancer, and ovarian cancer. Homocysteine On The Remethylation Pathway Methionine is regenerated by Methionine Synthase, which remethylates homocysteine in one of only two reactions in Humans that require vitamin B 12 as the immediate methyl donor Unless otherwise noted, LibreTexts content is licensed by CC BY-NC-SA 3.0. In previous sections, we saw how nitrogen is removed from amino acids to produce urea or NH4+, that some amino acids are glucogenic, ketogenic, or both, and the role of tetrahydrofolate derivatives and S-adenosylmethione in 1C transfer reactions. Carbon skeletons are eventually oxidized to CO 2 via the TCA cycle. Other important metabolites are made from cysteine catabolic pathways. Pathways and substrate‐specific regulation of amino acid degradation in Phaeobacter inhibens DSM 17395 (archetype of the marine Roseobacter clade) Katharina Drüppel Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM), Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg, Oldenburg, Germany Amino acids in cancer. The pool of aspartate in the body is small, and aspartate cannot be the primary transporter of the second N into urea synthesis. Have questions or comments? The IBD enzyme is encoded by the acyl-CoA dehydrogenase family, member 8 (ACAD8) gene. Conversion to Pyruvate: Ala, Trp, Cys, Ser, Gly, Thr. In general, the end product of a pathway, the amino acid, inhibits the enzyme catalyzing the first (or committed step) of its own biosynthetic pathway. This role becomes even clearer when we look at how urea is synthesized in the liver. The chief function of amino acids in a cell is the transformation and metabolism of energy. It can also be interconverted with glycine (Gly) by … Tyrosine is equally important for protein biosynthesis as well as an intermediate in the biosynthesis of the catecholamines: dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine (see Amino Acid Derivatives). These codependencies become important when nutrient intake is limited or when metabolic requirements are increased. In this case, the amino acid threonine becomes dehydated through an alpha elimination reaction. As described in 18.2, the PLP-dependent enyzme ALanine Amino Transferase (ALT), also known as Glutamate Pyruvate Transaminase (GPT), catalyzes this simple transamination reaction: alanine +α−ketoglutarate ↔ pyruvate + glutamate. Amino acid degradation also produces other non-amino acid, N-containing compounds in the body. The pathways for the synthesis of nonessential amino acids are quite simple. Exp Mol Med 52, 15–30 (2020). Amino acids must first pass out of organelles and cells into blood circulation via amino acid transporters, since the amine and carboxylic acid groups are typically ionized. Furthermore, EAA catabolism contributes to the generation of NEAAs through chemical reactions, including those mediated by transaminases. SHMT1 serine hydroxymethyltransferase, cytosolic, BCAT branched-chain amino acid transaminase, mitochondrial, BCAA branched-chain amino acid (valine, leucine, isoleucine), BCKA branched-chain ketoacid, GOT1 aspartate transaminase, cytosolic (AST), GLS glutaminase, GS glutamine synthetase (cytosolic and mitochondrial), ASNS asparagine synthetase, PRODH pyrroline-5-carboxylate dehydrogenase, PYCR pyrroline-5-carboxylate reductase, P5C pyrroline-5-carboxylate, GSH glutathione, Gly glycine, Ser serine, Met methionine, Met cycle methionine cycle, Gln glutamine, Cys cysteine, Glu glutamate, Asp aspartate, Pro proline, Asn asparagine, Arg arginine, PRPP phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate, acetyl-coA acetyl-coenzyme A, α-KG alpha-ketoglutaric acid, OAA oxaloacetic acid, LAT1 large-neutral amino acid transporter 1, SLC25A44 solute carrier family 25 member 44, GLUT glucose transporter, TCA cycle the tricarboxylic acid (also known as the citric acid cycle). The results indicate that N-chloro-α-amino acid anions undergo two competitive degradation pathways: a concerted Grob fragmentation (CGF) and β-elimination (β-E). Like most aminotransferase reaction, tyrosine aminotransferase utilizes 2-oxoglutarate (α-ketoglutarate) as the amino acceptor with the consequent generation of glutamate. Proteins are broken down by a variety of proteases that hydrolyze the peptide bonds to generate smaller peptides and amino acids. When there is a lack of methionine, there is a decrease in the production of SAM, which limits cystathionine synthase activity. In other cases, the transamination reactions are liver specific and compartmentalized and specifically degrade, rather than reversibly exchange, nitrogen. Bacteria can use branched-chain amino acids (ILV, i.e., isoleucine, leucine, valine) and fatty acids (FAs) as sole carbon and energy sources converting ILV into acetyl-coenzyme A (CoA), propanoyl-CoA, and propionyl-CoA, respectively. This reaction is analogous to the Ala → Pyr reaction in Rx B above and is catalyzed by the PLP-dependent enyzme serine/threonine dehydratase/threonine deaminase. However, until today, there is no consensus regarding their therapeutic effectiveness. Glutamine is degraded to glutamate by liberation of the amide N to release ammonia by a different enzymatic pathway (glutaminase). Phenylacetate, 4-hydroxyphenylacetate and indole-3-acetate were formed during anaerobic degradation of phenylalanine, tyrosine and tryptophan, respectively. Here is the full pathway for the conversion of Phe and Tyr to acetoacetate and fumarate. The individual steps may be found in textbooks of biochemistry or in reviews of the subject such as the very good chapter by Krebs (17). Several texts cover subject matter beyond mammalian systems and present material for pathways that are of little importance to human biochemistry. We just saw that two branched chain amino acids, Leu and Ile, are converted to acetyl-CoA and hence are ketogenic (E and F above). CO 2, ATP, and NH3 enter the urea cycle to form carbamoyl phosphate, which condenses with ornithine to form citrulline (Fig 2.3). Fumarylacetoacetate is hydrolyzed to fumarate and acetoacetate by the enzyme fumarylacetoacetate hydrolase which is encoded by the FAH gene located on chromosome 15q25.1 and is composed of 15 exons that generate a 419 amino acid protein. MEt to SAM give Met product + SAHC which produces homcys and adenosie also alpha keto butyrate which then proprionyl and to succinyll coa. The TCA cycle (also known as the Krebs cycle or the citric acid cycle) oxidizes carbon for energy, producing CO 2 and water. Lesson on Tryptophan Degradation (Metabolism) and the Kynurenine Pathway. We ended section 18:3 on the discussion of the Ser Gly One Carbon Cycle (SGOC) so some of this will be a bit of a review. The inputs to the cycle are acetyl-CoA and oxaloacetate forming citrate, which is degraded to a-ketoglutarate and then to oxaloacetate. The third pathway, which we just saw in the previous section, is catalyzed by serine hydroxymethyltransferase (SHMT) (but also called glycine hydroxymethyltransferase or threonine aldolase) and requires the use of both PLP and tetrahydrofolate as cofactors. Mammalian α-aminoadipic semialdehyde synthase is encoded by the AASS gene found on chromosome 7q31.32 and is composed of 25 exons encoding a mitochondrially localized protein of 926 amino acids. As in the case with the the conversion of dihydrofolate back to tetrahydrofolate (FH4) by dihydrofolate reductase, the 4a-OH-BH4 is conveted to dihydrobiopterin and then to tetrahydrobiopterin by dihyrobiopterin reductase. When amino acids are degraded for energy rather than converted to other compounds, the ultimate products are CO 2, water, and urea. We have demonstrated that one d-amino acid at the N-terminus of a protein abrogates its proteasomal degradation by the N-end rule pathway. Nitrogen is also removed from glutamate by glutamate dehydrogenase, producing a-ketoglutarate and ammonia. Amino Acid Degradation Pathways Complete amino acid degradation produces nitrogen, which is removed by incorporation into urea. Following from:Lieu, E.L., Nguyen, T., Rhyne, S. et al. The third reaction of valine catabolism involves the enzyme isobutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase (IBD). An overview of the the many reactions in ketogenic amino acid degration is shown in the slide below. Correspondingly, there are 20 different catabolic pathways for amino acid degradation. The enzymes required for this conversion are propionyl-CoA carboxylase, methylmalonyl-CoA epimerase, and methylmalonyl-CoA mutase, respectively. Methylation and acetylation are represented by red Me and blue Ac circles, respectively. In addition, we will explore the chemistry of yet one more cofactor the facilitates electron flow in the conversion of Phe to Try in the first step, catalysed by the enyzme tyrosine hydroxlase. We'll follow the conversion of phenyalanine to tyrosine, which continues on to acetoacetate, making Phe and Tyr both ketogenic amino acids, and in subsequent steps that produces fumarate. Rather than show individual reaction steps, the major pathways for degradation, including the primary endproducts, are presented. More details are provide for each of the steps below. The N-terminal half of the AASS protein harbors the lysine:2-oxoglutarate reductase activity and the C-terminal half harbors the saccharopine dehydrogenase activity. It is necessary because, unlike fats and carbohydrates, excess amino acids cannot be stored. saccharopine dehydrogenase (SDH), which reside on a single bifunctional polypeptide (LOR/SDH". This propionyl-CoA conversion pathway is also required for the metabolism of the amino acids valine, isoleucine, and threonine and fatty acids with an odd number of carbon atoms. S1). The catabolism of tyrosine involves five reactions, four of which have been shown to associated with inborn errors in metabolism and three of these result in clinically significant disorders. No reaction occurs in isolation in a cell, but rather as part of a more complex pathway. These pathways have three common reactions with both pathways including the transformation of methionine to S-adenosylmethionine (SAM), the use of SAM in many different transmethylation reactions resulting in a methylated product plus S-adenosylhomocysteine, and the conversion of S-adenosylhomocysteine to produce the compounds homocysteine and adenosine. Oxoadipic acid is formed from catalyzation of mitochondrial kynurenine/alpha-aminoadipate aminotransferase on aminoadipic acid. Hence, these amino acids are, some are converted to acetoacetate-CoA and or acetyl-CoA. The resulting α-ketoacids are then oxidatively decarboxylated via the action of the enzyme complex, branched-chain ketoacid dehydrogenase (BCKD). The need for synthesis of these compounds may also drain the pools of their amino acid precursors, increasing the need for these amino acids in the diet. There are several pathways for this conversion. Orange represents receptors. Glutamate Releases Its Amino Group as Ammonia in the Liver Amino groups from many of the amino acids are collected in the liver in the form of the amino group of L-glutamate molecules. MetaCyc Pathways Class: Amino Acid Degradation Summary: This class contains pathways of the degradation of various amino acids, not all of which occur in proteins, to utilize them as sources of nutrients and energy. The figure below, also shown in the previous sections, summarizes the fates of the 20 amino acids in their catabolic reactions. After these first two reactions the remainder of the catabolic pathways for the three amino acids diverges. So the entry in Table.2.6. ", aldehyde dehydrogenase 4 family, member A1 (ALDH4A1) or D1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate dehydrogenase, (P5CDH), "lutamate that results from ornithine and proline catabolism can then be converted to 2-oxoglutarate (α-ketoglutarate) in a transamination reaction. Since they are added in, some have multiple ways to be degraded and can produce both acetyl-CoA and pyruvate, so they are, purely ketogenic: only Leu and Lys (the only amino acids whose name starts with, both: 5 are including the aromatics - Trp, Tyr, Phe - and Ile/Thr. Ornithine, citrulline, and arginine sit in the middle of the cycle. [ "article:topic", "showtoc:no", "jsmol:yes", "amino acid degradation" ], https://bio.libretexts.org/@app/auth/3/login?returnto=https%3A%2F%2Fbio.libretexts.org%2FUnder_Construction%2FMap%253A_Principles_of_Biochemistry_(Lehninger)%2F02%253A_Unit_II-_Bioenergetics_and_Metabolism%2F18%253A_Nitrogen_-_Amino_Acid_Catabolism%2F18.05%253A_Pathways_of_Amino_Acid_Degradation, 18.4: An overview of amino acid metabolism and the role of Cofactors, Conversion to Pyruvate: Ala, Trp, Cys, Ser, Gly, Thr, Conversion to Acetyl-CoA: Trp, Lys, Phe, Tyr, Leu, Ile, Thr, C,D. The first reaction of tyrosine catabolism involves the nuclear genome encoded mitochondrial enzyme tyrosine aminotransferase and generates the corresponding ketoacid, p-hydroxyphenylpyruvic acid. Figure 2.3. An outline of the degradative pathways of the various amino acids is presented in Table.2.6. It appears that SHMT can act on Thr at a lower rate, but that a second enzyme, threonine aldolase, which seems to be afunctional in mammals, acts in other organisms. As described in the reactions above, can be converted to α-ketoglutarate through transamination reactions. Amino acid biosynthetic pathways were depicted with KEGG Pathway manual inspection where UniProtKB identifiers for the enzymes used in this work could be retrieved for the model autotrophic organisms Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Arabidopsis thaliana and, for the archaeal lysine biosynthesis, Pyrococcus horikoshii. This figure has been adapted from Lieu, E.L., Nguyen, T., Rhyne, S. et al. One caveat to the reader consulting such texts for reference information: mammals are not the only form of life. A transamination reaction takes place in the synthesis of most amino acids. We saw in the introduction to amino acids that produce acetyl-CoA that threonine and isoleucine, two branched chains amino acids, also form proprionyl-CoA which goes on to succinyl CoA. : glucogenic, ketogenic, or a-ketoglutarate may be converted to ketone bodies ( )!
