General annotation
FunctionThought to be involved in fatty acid degradation. FADB and FADA are the alpha and beta subunits of the multifunctional enzyme complex of the fatty acid degradation cycle [catalytic activity: (S)-3-hydroxybutanoyl-CoA + NADP+ = 3-acetoacetyl-CoA + NADPH].
ProductProbable 3-hydroxybutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase FadB3 (beta-hydroxybutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase) (BHBD)
CommentsRv1715, (MTV048.02), len: 304 aa. Probable fadB3, 3-hydroxybutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase, highly similar to many e.g. NP_107236.1|NC_002678 3-hydroxybutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase from Mesorhizobium loti (309 aa); NP_250319.1|NC_002516 probable 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase from Pseudomonas aeruginosa (509 aa); P45856|HBD_BACSU probable 3-hydroxybutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase from Bacillus subtilis (287 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 488, E(): 1.5e-24, (38.7% identity in 279 aa overlap); etc. Could belong to the 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase family.
