Domain

NAD-dependent epimerase/dehydratase, N-terminal domain (IPR001509)

Short name: Epimerase_deHydtase_N

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain is found in proteins that utilise NAD as a cofactor and use nucleotide-sugar substrates for a variety of chemical reactions [PMID: 9174344]. One of the best studied of these proteins is UDP-galactose 4-epimerase which catalyses the conversion of UDP-galactose to UDP-glucose during galactose metabolism [PMID: 11279032, PMID: 10801319].
