ENZYME entry: EC 4.2.1.159

Accepted Name
dTDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-alpha-D-glucopyranose 2,3-dehydratase.
Reaction catalysed
dTDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-alpha-D-glucopyranose <=> dTDP-3,4-didehydro-2,6-dideoxy-alpha-D-glucose + H(2)O
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme participates in the biosynthesis of several deoxysugars, including beta-L-4-epi-vancosamine, alpha-L-megosamine, L- and D-olivose, D-oliose, D-mycarose, forosamine and beta-L-digitoxose.
  • In vitro the intermediate can undergo a spontaneous decomposition to maltol.
