Family

L-arabinose isomerase (IPR003762)

Short name: Lara_isomerase

Family relationships

None.

Description

The Escherichia coli araBAD operon consists of three genes encoding three enzymes that convert L-arabinose to D-xylulose-5 phosphate. L-arabinose isomerase (AraA) EC:5.3.1.4 catalyses the conversion of L-arabinose to L-ribulose as the first step in the pathway of L-arabinose utilization as a carbon source [PMID: 9084180].
