||dTDP-4-amino-4,6-dideoxy-D-glucose + 2-oxoglutarate = dTDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-D-glucose + L-glutamate.
||The enzyme from Micromonospora echinospora, CalS13 (upon which subfamily a is based), is involved in calicheamicin biosynthesis, where it catalyzes the reaction in the direction opposite to the one shown above.
The enterobacterial enzyme VioA (subfamily b) is responsible for the synthesis of D-Viosamine (4-amino-4,6-dideoxy-D-glucose), whose derivatives, such as 4-(N-acetylglycyl)amino-4,6-dideoxy-D-glucose, are component of O-antigen variants.
In Streptomyces, the same reaction is exploited in metabolic pathways leading to the production of macrolides.
