Application

D-Erythrose 4-phosphate (E4P) is used as a substrate to identify, differentiate and characterize 2-keto-3-deoxy-6-phosphogalactonate (KDPGal) aldolase(s) and 3-deoxy-D-arabino-heptulosonate 7-phosphate (DAH7P) synthase(s) that initiate the shikimate pathway in microorganisms and plants. It may be used as a substrate to identify, differentiate and characterize glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase(s) (GAPDH) involved in surface antigen and virulence factor development in pathogenic microorganisms. E4P may be used in malaria research as an inhibitor of the PfPdx1 component of the PLP (pyridoxal 5′-phosphate) synthase enzymatic complex responsible for the de novo synthesizes vitamin B6 in Plasmodium falciparum.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Erythrose 4-phosphate is an intermediate in the penntose phosphate pathway, as well as the biosynthesis of phenylalanine, tyrosine, tryptophan and metabolism of vitamin B6.

3-Deoxy-D-arabino-heptulosonate 7-phosphate (DAH7P) synthase catalyses the first step of the shikimate pathway, which is responsible for the biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids in microorganisms and plants. This enzyme catalyses an aldol reaction between phosphoenolpyruvate and D-erythrose 4-phosphate to generate DAH7P.

The human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum is able to synthesize de novo pyridoxal 5-phosphate (PLP), a crucial cofactor, during erythrocytic schizogony. However, the parasite possesses additionally a pyridoxine/pyridoxal kinase (PdxK) to activate B6 vitamers salvaged from the host. We describe
