PFAM accession number:PF01488
Interpro abstract (IPR006151):

This entry represents a domain found in shikimate and quinate dehydrogenases, as well as glutamyl-tRNA reductases.

Shikimate 5-dehydrogenase ( EC ) catalyses the conversion of shikimate to 5-dehydroshikimate [ (PUBMED:12906831) (PUBMED:12837789) ]. This reaction is part of the shikimate pathway which is involved in the biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids [ (PUBMED:15012217) ]. Quinate 5-dehydrogenase catalyses the conversion of quinate to 5-dehydroquinate. This reaction is part of the quinate pathway where quinic acid is exploited as a source of carbon in prokaryotes and microbial eukaryotes. Both the shikimate and quinate pathways share two common pathway metabolites, 3-dehydroquinate and dehydroshikimate.

Glutamyl-tRNA reductase ( EC ) catalyzes the first step of tetrapyrrole biosynthesis in plants, archaea and most bacteria. The dimeric enzyme has an unusual V-shaped architecture where each monomer consists of three domains linked by a long 'spinal' alpha-helix. The central catalytic domain specifically recognises the glutamate moiety of the substrate [ (PUBMED:16228559) ].
