ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Decaprenylphospho-beta-D-erythro-pentofuranosid-2-ulose 2-reductase.
Alternative Name(s)
Decaprenylphospho-beta-D-ribofuranose 2'-epimerase.
Reaction catalysed
Trans,octacis-decaprenylphospho-beta-D-arabinofuranose + NAD(+) <=> trans,octacis-decaprenylphospho-beta-D-erythro-pentofuranosid-2-ulose + NADH
  • The reaction is catalyzed in the reverse direction.
  • The enzyme, isolated from the bacterium Mycobacterium smegmatis, is involved, along with EC, in the epimerization of trans,octacis-decaprenylphospho-beta-D-ribofuranose to trans,octacis- decaprenylphospho-beta-D-arabinoofuranose, the arabinosyl donor for the biosynthesis of mycobacterial cell wall arabinan polymers.
