Pattern 2870
Pyridine -> 5-Iminopentanoate

Aerobic Likelihood:              Neutral

EAWAG-BBD Reaction(s):
Not found

This rule handles the unsubstituted pyridine ring cleavage pathway. An initial reduction step breaks aromaticity of the ring, forming a 1,4-dihydropyridine intermediate which is predicted to undergo hydrolytic cleavage to produce 5-iminopentaldehyde (Watson and Cain, 1975). The aldehyde is quickly oxidized to form 5-iminopentanoate (bt0003). The iminoaldehyde is postulated to transition between the linear form and a cyclic tautomer (see graphic). This rule does not handle the tautomerization.
