Description UDP-2-acetamido-2,6-dideoxy-alpha-D-xylo-4-hexulose aminotransferase (2.6.1.-)
Alternative names PglE.
Catalyzed reaction UDP-2-acetamido-2,6-dideoxy-{alpha}-D-xylo-4-hexulose + L-glutamate = UDP-4,6-dideoxy-{alpha}-D-GlcNAc + 2-oxoglutarate.
Cofactor Pyridoxal phosphate.
Comments In C. jejuni PglE is involved in the general glycosylation pathway (Pgl) responsible for the N-linked modification of proteins with a heptasaccharide containing 2,4-diacetamido-2,4,6-trideoxy-alpha-D-glucopyranose, a derivative of bacillosamine.
Specifically, the product of the PglE aminotransferase is UDP-4-amino-4,6-dideoxy-alpha-D-GlcNAc (UDP-2-acetamido-4-amino-2,4,6-trideoxy-alpha-D-glucopyranose) - a precursor used in the production of the Pgl glycan component
