The complete primary structures of Escherichia coli L-threonine dehydrogenase has been deduced by sequencing the cloned tdh gene. The primary structure so determined agrees with results obtained independently for the amino acid composition, the N-terminal amino acid sequence (20 residues), and a short sequence at the end of an internal peptide of the purified enzyme. The presence of a predicted Asp-Pro bond at residues 148 and 149 was confirmed by treatment of purified threonine dehydrogenase with dilute acid and subsequent analysis of the resulting cleavage products. The primary structure of L-threonine dehydrogenase from E. coli has been examined for possible homology to other NAD+-dependent dehydrogenases; indications are that this enzyme is a member of the zinc-containing long-chain alcohol/polyol dehydrogenase family.
