Characterization of d-xylose reductase, XyrB, from Aspergillus niger

Abstract

D-xylose reductase is a member of the aldo-keto reductase family, and is involved in D-xylose and L-arabinose conversion through the Pentose Catabolic Pathway (PCP) in fungi. In this study, we biochemically characterized a newly identified second D-xylose reductase (XyrB) from Aspergillus niger. This NADPH-dependent reductase is able to efficiently convert D-xylose and L-arabinose, and it has the highest affinity for these sugars of all currently known fungal pentose reductases. A combination of biochemical data, transcriptomics and phylogenetic analysis further illustrated the role of XyrB in the PCP.
