Abstract

Crystal structure determination and mutagenesis analysis of a cis-epoxysuccinate hydrolase which produces enantiomerically pure D(−)-tartaric acids revealed a zinc ion and essential residues in the stereoselective mechanism for the catalytic reaction of the small mirror symmetric substrate.
