Description dTDP-3-dehydro-6-deoxy-D-glucose aminotransferase
Alternative names dTDP-3-dehydro-6-deoxy-D-glucose 3-aminotransferase;
dTDP-3-keto-6-deoxy-D-glucose 3-aminotransferase;
TDP-3-dehydro-6-deoxy-D-glucose 3-aminotransferase;
TDP-3-keto-6-deoxy-D-glucose 3-aminotransferase.
Catalyzed reaction dTDP-3-amino-3,6-dideoxy-alpha-D-glucopyranose + 2-oxoglutarate <=> dTDP-3-dehydro-6-deoxy-alpha-D-glucopyranose + L-glutamate
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate.
Comments The reaction occurs in the reverse direction. The enzyme is involved in biosynthesis of D-mycaminose.
The enzyme plays a key role in the biosynthesis of 3-acetamido-3,6-dideoxy-α-D-glucose (Quip3NAc), a carbohydrate that is found in the cell-wall lipopolysaccharide antigens of some Gram-negative bacteria.

In Streptomyces fradiae, the same enzyme (there termed TylB) is involved in the biosynthesis of tylosin (a macrolide antibiotic). In this pathway, the product of the TylB reaction (TDP-3-amino-3,6-dideoxy-D-glucose) is subsequently dimethylated to form TDP-d-Mycaminose.
