ENZYME entry: EC 3.1.3.103

Accepted Name
3-deoxy-D-glycero-D-galacto-nonulopyranosonate 9-phosphatase.
Alternative Name(s)
2-keto-3-deoxy-D-glycero-D-galacto-non-2-ulopyranosonate-9-phosphate phosphatase.
Reaction catalysed
3-deoxy-D-glycero-beta-D-galacto-non-2-ulopyranosonate 9-phosphate + H(2)O <=> 3-deoxy-D-glycero-beta-D-galacto-non-2-ulopyranosonate + phosphate
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron, is part of the biosynthesis pathway of the sialic acid 3-deoxy-D-glycero-beta-D-galacto-non-2-ulopyranosonate (Kdn).
  • Kdn is abundant in extracellular glycoconjugates of lower vertebrates such as fish and amphibians, but is also found in the capsular polysaccharides of bacteria that belong to the Bacteroides genus.
