B6db families:
Description 8-amino-7-oxononanoate synthase
Notes A family constructed based on validated bacterial and plant sequences.
The proteins in this family show a strict phylogenetic relationship to those in family (glycine acetyltransferase). Additionally, at least some of the validated enzymes in the family also show a glycine acetyltransferase activity.
