ⓘ Dehydro-L-gulonate decarboxylase

In enzymology, a dehydro-L-gulonate decarboxylase is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

3-dehydro-L-gulonate ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } L-xylulose + CO 2

Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, 3-dehydro-L-gulonate, and two products, L-xylulose and CO 2.

This enzyme belongs to the family of lyases, specifically the carboxy-lyases, which cleave carbon-carbon bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is 3-dehydro-L-gulonate carboxy-lyase L-xylulose-forming. Other names in common use include keto-L-gulonate decarboxylase, 3-keto-L-gulonate decarboxylase, and 3-dehydro-L-gulonate carboxy-lyase. This enzyme participates in pentose and glucuronate interconversions.
