csiD is the first gene in csiD-lhgO-gabDTP operon. csiD is a carbon starvation-inducible gene that is regulated by RpoS, cAMP-CRP, HN-S and Lrp (Marschal, 1998). The structure of CsiD(Gab) indicates that it is distantly related to 2-oxoglutarate (2-OG) Fe(II)-dependent oxygenases; both CsiD(Gab) and the 2-OG oxygenases belong to the Cupin (jelly-roll) protein clan (Pfam CL0029); gel filtration and structure indicates it is a tetramer; 2-OG is a substrate for GabT and thus CsiD(Gab) may be involved in GABA metabolism or regulation; an iron ion is coordinated by His160, His292 and Asp162; Arg305 is conserved bewteen CsiD(Gab) the 2-OG oxygenases in which it binds substrate carboxylate groups indicating that CsiD(Gab) is likely to also utilize a substrate with a carboxylate group (Chance, 2002).
