Aconitase swivel domain. Aconitase (aconitate hydratase) catalyzes the reversible isomerization of citrate and isocitrate as part of the TCA cycle. This is the aconitase swivel domain, which undergoes swivelling conformational change in the enzyme mechanism. The aconitase family contains the following proteins: - Iron-responsive element binding protein (IRE-BP). IRE-BP is a cytosolic protein that binds to iron-responsive elements (IREs). IREs are stem-loop structures found in the 5'UTR of ferritin, and delta aminolevulinic acid synthase mRNAs, and in the 3'UTR of transferrin receptor mRNA. IRE-BP also express aconitase activity. - 3-isopropylmalate dehydratase (isopropylmalate isomerase), the enzyme that catalyzes the second step in the biosynthesis of leucine. - Homoaconitase (homoaconitate hydratase), an enzyme that participates in the alpha-aminoadipate pathway of lysine biosynthesis and that converts cis-homoaconitate into homoisocitric acid.
