AbstractLactobacillus plantarum is the lactic acid bacterial species most frequently found in plant-food fermentations where hydroxycinnamic acids are abundant. L. plantarum efficiently decarboxylates these compounds and also reduces them, yielding substituted phenylpropionic acids. Although the reduction step is known to be induced by a hydroxycinnamic acid, the enzymatic machinery responsible for this reduction pathway has not been yet identified and characterized. A previous study on the transcriptomic response of L. plantarum to p-coumaric acid revealed a marked induction of two contiguous genes, lp_1424 and lp_1425, encoding putative reductases. In this work, the disruption of these genes abolished the hydroxycinnamate reductase activity of L. plantarum, supporting their involvement in such chemical activity. Functional in vitro studies revealed that Lp_1425 (HcrB) exhibits hydroxycinnamate reductase activity but was unstable in solution. In contrast, Lp_1424 (HcrA) was inactive but showed high stability. When the hcrAB genes were co-overexpressed, the formation of an active heterodimer (HcrAB) was observed. Since L. plantarum reductase activity was only observed on hydroxycinnamic acids (o-coumaric, m-coumaric, p-coumaric, caffeic, ferulic, and sinapic acids), the presence of a hydroxyl group substituent on the benzene ring appears to be required for activity. In addition, hydroxycinnamate reductase activity was not widely present among lactic acid bacteria, and it was associated with the presence of hcrAB genes. This study revealed that L. plantarum hydroxycinnamate reductase is a heterodimeric NADH-dependent coumarate reductase acting on a carbon-carbon double bond.
