B6db families: b
Description dTDP-4-amino-4,6-dideoxy-D-glucose aminotransferase (family b)
Notes A rather heterogeneous family based on the validated enzymes from Escherichia coli O7, Shigella dysenteriae Type 7 and Streptomyces sp.
The family is related to other aminotransferases involved in aminosugar metabolism ( , and to perosamine aminotransferase.
