Family

Glucosamine-fructose-6-phosphate aminotransferase, isomerising (IPR005855)

Short name: GlmS_trans

Family relationships

None.

Description

Glucosamine:fructose-6-phosphate aminotransferase (EC:2.6.1.16) catalyses the formation of glucosamine 6-phosphate and is the first and rate-limiting enzyme of the hexosamine biosynthetic pathway. The final product of the hexosamine pathway, UDP-N-acetyl glucosamine, is an active precursor of numerous macromolecules containing amino sugars.

This family of sequences belong to the MEROPS peptidase family C44 (clan PB(C)), and are classified as non-peptidase homologues.
