MetaCyc Enzyme: dTDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-D-glucose transaminase

Gene: rffA Accession Numbers: EG11456 (MetaCyc), b3791, ECK3783

Synonyms: rff, fcnA, wecE, yifI

Species: Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655

Subunit composition of dTDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-D-glucose transaminase = [RffA]4
         dTDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-D-glucose transaminase = RffA

dTDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-D-glucose transaminase is involved in the biosynthesis of enterobacterial common antigen (ECA). This enzyme catalyzes the conversion of TDP-4-keto-6-deoxy-D-glucose to TDP-D-fucosamine. [MeierDieter90, Hwang04].

A Tn10 insertion mutant does not produce ECA [MeierDieter90].
