ENZYME entry: EC 5.3.1.25

Accepted Name
L-fucose isomerase.
Reaction catalysed
L-fucopyranose <=> L-fuculose
Cofactor(s)
Mn(2+).
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme binds the closed form of the sugar and catalyzes ring opening to generate a form of open-chain conformation that facilitates the isomerization reaction, which proceeds via an ene- diol mechanism.
  • The enzyme from Escherichia coli can also convert D-arabinose to D-ribulose.
  • The enzyme from the thermophilic bacterium Caldicellulosiruptor saccharolyticus also converts D-altrose to D-psicose and L-galactose to L-tagatose.
