Clavaminate synthase (CAS), a 2-oxoglutarate (2OG) dependent dioxygenase, catalyses three steps in the biosynthesis of clavulanic acid. Crystals of CAS complexed with Fe(II), 2OG and deoxyguanidinoproclavaminate were exposed to nitric oxide (NO) acting as a dioxygen analogue. Prior to exposure with NO, the active site Fe(II) is octahedrally coordinated by a water molecule, the 2-oxo and 1-carboxylate groups of 2OG, and the side-chains of an aspartyl and two histidinyl residues. NO binds to th...Expand abstract
